This morning, many of our SITAG family piled into the SITAG truck and spent the morning at one of the beaches just outside Honiara.
Sarah and one of her friends found several beautiful blue starfish.
I think two of my favorite things about the trip were the fabulous company of our SITAG family and the creatures God made to live in the ocean.
Sarah's friend found a different starfish that really wanted to stay attached. Watching the suction cups work fascinated me!
Some of the kids collected tiny hermit crabs in a coconut shell.
Then one of the guys found a nasty crown-of-thorns starfish. These critters eat the coral reefs, so there was some talk of leaving it on the beach to die.
But in the end, we tossed it back into the ocean.
So, God's creation of sea creatures is awesome, but His creation of our colleagues just blows me away!
On the way home, we stopped at a road side stand for some lunch.
Fish and cassava on a disposable leaf plate - perfect ending to a perfect Saturday morning!
