One of my favorite things about this trip has been the coconuts. I love coconuts! It all started with coconut oil when I was young. There were a lot of coconuts in Mexico, and just as many in the Caribbean. The places we have stayed have coconuts in the trees and on the ground. Even though I already loved the coconut, my appreciation for it has grown stronger. I never realized the other purposes of a coconut. I can play fetch with a coconut on the ground or in the water. The coconut is also great to chew on. It’s more challenging than my “indestructible” chew toys. I can coconut gaze for hours, wondering how to get it, or when it might drop to the ground. Do you want to know the best part about of a coconut? The inside! Best. TREAT. Ever. Who would have thought this was where coconut oil came from? Now, if only I can figure out how to crack them!
