Today, October 25th, is Thanksgiving in Grenada! Most folks are off from work and are celebrating at home. We talked to a few local folks about the holiday and they told us that they don’t really celebrate like we do in the States. It’s just some time off for them to “lime.”
We saw our first cruise ship in Grenada yesterday. We were afraid the beach would be jam packed with cruisers, but surprisingly nothing changed around our neck of the woods. (more…)
We had our first taste of christophine yesterday. It’s also known as a chayote. Be careful if you are handling them, you may get pricked. I know, I saw thorns on them too, but the farmer who sold it to us was grabbing it all sorts of ways and he didn’t yelp at any thorns pricking him. (more…)
The weather was horrible in the morning. Rain was coming down heavy and the winds were mighty strong. By mid day we were looking pretty good so I decided to run down to the beach and take a few pictures to share with everyone. In the above picture you’ll see the entrance to Grand Anse Beach from the Flamboyant Hotel.
