Grand Etang

After we left Annandale Falls we hit the road again and made our way to Grand Etang Forest Reserve.

Grand Etang is famous for it's Mona Monkey watching but we were out of luck today, we didn't see any monkeys.

Memphis even brought a banana from home to feed the monkeys with.

Grand Etang Forest Reserve is also famous for Grand Etang Lake which fills the crater of one of the island's extinct volcanoes.

The lake behind Memphis.

 We were only at this look out point for ten minutes and within that amount of time it went from sunny to rainy. Above is a picture right after it started raining.

And in this picture you can't even see the lake anymore.

 Leia and I took refuge in the visitor's center.

The boys were on a quick hunt for a bathroom when the storm came and they got drenched.

These fish were huge. At least 3 feet wide.

Then we finished off the day at Umbrellas one of our favorite hot spots. We grabbed the kids a quick bite to eat with a great view of the beach from the second floor.

 Then headed down to the beach for some play time until the sun went down.

It was a great day for everyone.
