You guys know that one of our absolute favorite things to do is visit farms. We do it as often as we can here— usually the thing that gets in our way is how incredibly, unbearably hot it is. In Antigua, we were actually pretty cold. But everyone assured bus that the week we were visiting was the coldest it had been in the entire year. And to be quite honest, it wasn’t that cold— I just didn’t come prepared with socks and shoes. Other than that, we layered and were good to go.
I love the internet for meeting people– you guys know this too. When I found Molly on instagram, I instantly fell in love with her. Much like I did with Celia 😉 There was an instant connection. I immediately starting commenting and messaging her like crazy, demanding that she be my new best friend 😉 Lucky for me, she agreed. She wanted to take us to Earth Lodge for a day, but due to the weather, we opted for Caoba Farms. The adults sat and chatted about all the thing while the kiddos just ran around in the rain visiting goats, pigs, chickens, and whatever other things they found.
We loved Caoba Farms so much that Celia and I opted to go back another day. Celia and the girls had a mini photoshoot planned, so we took advantage of the gorgeous space and took some photos here too. This day was anything but cold. We were all sticky and sweaty like back in home Florida 🙂
We loved how everything was organic– and that had loads of kombucha– which I stocked up on a few times to aid our guts on the trip…. and ten million pounds of plantain chips. And more kombuxha to counter the fried plantain chips 😉
We loved how easy it was to wander without a car. We could have walked to most places, and often did, but we found ourselves happily using a tuk tuk a few times too. I mean, scooting around in a tuk tuk after a farm breakfast, drinking fresh kombucha? Basically heaven.
Eventually the sun came out and Molly picked us up once again to try our original plan, Earth Lodge. Way up a mountain– with the most amazing views. I was nervous for Marlowe– she doesn’t have a great track record with hills and mountain drives, but like my fear of flying, that girl seems to be getting over her fear of hills 😉
