Honduras - Day 6

Our sixth day in Honduras was very relaxing and fun. 
At some point there was a hawk flying circles above the chicken pen. Nathaniel went out with his bb gun to scare it off. 

I got in the hammock with the girls. There were three of us so it was a little smooshed...

...I had baby feet in my face :)

Bro. Schreckhise sat down and played the piano and everyone sang. It was beautiful! 

After everyone got ready and ate breakfast, we headed out to the river. It was another hot hot day and we were ready for a day of playing in the water. 
We walked down a pathway of boulders and rocks...

...to arrive at this beautiful, crystal clear river. 

Everybody was so happy to see the water! 

We all jumped in pretty quickly. The water was surprisingly cold, but not too cold. It was perfectly refreshing! 

The guys worked on building a dam at the end of where we were swimming and succeeded in making the water line rise about a foot.

We found a natural jacuzzi - a place in the rocks where the water was rushing down with such force. It was quite relaxing!

We found this stinky ole dead crab
After swimming and playing in the water for many hours, we headed back home. This is the road the Schreckhises live on - they are smack dab in the middle of the jungle, green everywhere! 

After dinner we sat around the table playing games...

We ended a day of fun with a few games of spoons. 

Such a great day!
