Cow Island

I had never had the chance to explore Lle a Vache before and when it dawned on July 6th the trade winds were howling above 30 kts and the forecast was for high seas and winds for two more days, I figured now was my chance to get to know the island. The village of Cacor (ca-ah-coc) is across the harbor from Port Morgan and the home for Villeme our translator. We had given Villeme the responsibility of providing clean water for his village using the two Sawyer gravity feed filtration buckets that were donated by Capt. John Puig of Naples. After set up and instruction we set off on a hike across the island to Abaka Bay. Lle a Vache is known to Haitians as the Hidden Treasure and our hike confirmed the beauty of the island. Even with all it's problems, this little corner of Haiti shows a lot of promise.
