Friends told us about the Chaudiere Pools. Ed and Ann had already been there but wanted a hike. So off we went. Got on the bus in town and rode it for about 40 minutes across the island. At each stop, Ann asked the driver if this was our stop. Got to be kind of fun by the time we finally got there.

|Only another 10 to 20 minutes
But the pools are terrific. You can jump into the 10 meter deep pools from the cliffs on the side - also about 10 meters or you can jump in off the ledge about 20 centimeters. Ed had no problem making the big jump. Ann took a bit of time to screw up her determination to jump... but she did! Me? Not on your life. It took me forever to work up the courage to jump the 20 centimeters. Pam just snorted.

I told the kids that I was a teacher and that they should all be quiet. That drew a bit of laughter and before too long, the class clown piped up about something. I started singing, "The Wheels on the Bus" and they all burst out in great voice. They never stopped singing all the way back to Portsmouth. They were amazing. What a great bus trip!!
More news soon!
