The Caves themselves are, of course, ready but the site still needs some work to prepare them for the coming tourist season. The track to the caves has a tendancy to flood but this is beyond the resources of the Trust to solve for now. The cave building needs some repairs and a temporary fix is always possible. So it was that we spent the day replacing a broken window with a tidy but temporary plywood fix which also prevents the remaining sliding window from sliding. As ever it was a job based on what materials were to hand including plywood, mirror fixings and some rather old white primer.
Meanwhile the grounds are getting a tidy up using a machete as a universal tool for weeding and chopping. The mosquitos were not too bad but a head net still helps when working in the vegetation.
We did give a quick cave tour to a group from Providenciales and the USA and also managed to have a very short explore along the track, finding a large and impressive orchid in the process. It stands over 2m tall by the old road that traverses the island and is growing under the shade of a poisonwood tree.
