Buildings in Hope Town

When you are walking around in Hope Town you can see that there is a lot of construction going on. I don’t know if it is true but they say that. They are building an apartment next to the burn down food store.

It will be great for the locals to have more housing.

Parrot fish


Whenever you go to the warm, sunny, sandy beach do you ever sit on the sand. Well did you know that you’re actually sitting on scat. Scat is animal waste that we all recognize as Poop. Parrot fish nibble off of coral reefs and drop off poop everywhere and then the sand gets washed off to the shore. So parrot fish do a great part in our life. Parrot fish besides the poop are beautiful marine animals.

If you have not already, maybe next year you will enter your painting. Everyone is welcome.
