Driving through Grand Anse
Fresh coconut water 🙂
Those who pass on in Grenada are buried ABOVE ground.
A casualty of Hurricane Ivan. The country has had a lot of difficulty rebuilding since. Most of the houses on the island have missing walls.
Curbside stores are a dime a dozen in Grenada – but they have the freshest Rum Punch!
A Gecko 🙂
A mona monkey! His name is Jack, and unfortunately he’s kept on a chain. Mona Monkey’s came over from Africa during the slave-trade days, and there are signs all along the island encouraging people not to hunt the monkeys out of fear of extinction. Don’t worry – I slipped him treats!
I read a great book called “A Carribean Interlude”, a story about a couple who quits their jobs and sail the Carribean, before I went on our honeymoon. In it, the author raves about Rum Punch, a drink that was created in the Carribean. I tried it on my first night and… there are no words. The rhyme goes, ‘One of sour, two of sweet, three of strong, four of weak.’
We saw this rare tree, called the Screwpine, at a cocoa plantation. It was wild and so unique.
Raw cocoa tastes gross.

Cows everywhere! Goats too. They use goats as ‘lawnmowers’ to eat grass so they don’t have to cut it themselves.
Beautiful black volcanic sand…
Ahh yes.. onto our ‘professional shots’…
I love this shot! So beautiful.
All the way up an endless hill by the market is Fort George. The USA had a war with Grenada (a long time ago), and this is where the battle was fought.
This church was ruined by Hurricane Ivan. The roof was torn off, but the beauty of the church remained!
