I stopped at Cape Schanck on the way to my first host.

Some wildlife was in residence. A swallow nest was above one of the outside lights. 3 chicks with seeming more than just 2 parents feeding them. They were flying by the time I left. Some cows are allowed at the bottom of the property to keep the grass cut. When we had a walk down there, they all followed us (they get hand fed sometimes).

|Stairs and more stairs||Tree recently across the trail|
|View from about 1/2 way||Helicopter access pad|
|The last stretch||View from the top|
|Fig roots||Fig surrounding something else|
One of the things that struck me was all the fruit types we get at home in stores that grows here. There were trees on the property that had: coffee, bananas, oranges, pawpaw, mango, avocado, plus others. Bananas right off the tree taste way better than what you get in the store.
