Then again, that could be my lack of sleep talking. The a/c was definitely *not* working in the room last night, despite my turning it down to its coldest setting. At home we keep our summer thermostat set to about 78 during the day, and despite the a/c remote control claiming that it was 16 C (!), it was much warmer in the room than our house is at home.

We left after about an hour to run some errands for the day--we intended to purchase sunscreen, earbuds, an ACE bandage, & some provisions as well as to make our way back to AARF. Along the way, we saw some strange things, including hair mayonnaise:

We arrived at AARF just in time to meet Joan, one of the volunteers, who was nursing a tiny, three-week-old kitten. He had been picked up at the side of the road and dropped off at AARF. He was heartbreakingly small and fragile looking.
|These pups huddled at the back and wouldn't approach us--very fearful.|
|Ditto for this kitten and his littermate (not pictured). They'd spit & hiss when we approached the kennel.|
|Seriously: this place has it all|
|I'm really hoping this t-shirt label is in jest, but who can say?|

|Unit #6, the upper one, is our home away from home.|
|My favorite swimming cove on the island--right at the end of the beach.|
|Somehow the cove looks larger here than it really is.|
