What we did over the weekend....
This weekend, we were quite active, and we made sure to take lots of photos
to share with everyone.
Saturday we went to a hash in Victoria, at Tufton Hall estate.
Fantastic hike through the old plantation and up into the hills surrounding.
Some of the views along the valleys are breathtaking, and there was the
added bonus of a pool at the river to cool off in.
Yesterday we went to the Fish Friday in Gouyave.
We had not gone there in a couple of months, so were expecting that it had changed somewhat. Thankfully, it was just as good.
The food was still great, with a wide variety to choose from. The people are all quite friendly and pleasant to deal with and there is a well organised police presence, although they only have to help organise the parking and traffic.
We got there a little early, so it was not crowded and we had our choice of whatever we wanted.
We did not expect to see a lot of tourists there, but were a little surprised when the crowd started arriving and the majority of them were visitors. (If you like lobster or crabback, then I would suggest you get there early, as they tend to sell out quite quickly.)
Quiet beach on the northeast coast, with a refreshing breeze from the Atlantic Ocean.
Just 10 minutes drive south of the town of Grenville, Marquis is a black sand beach with local houses almost to the waters edge.
Grenada is famous as the ‘Isle of Spice’, but of course the island has so much more to offer than simply ‘spices’.
What I find so fascinating about the island is that Grenada still has the old Caribbean ‘flair’. It has not been commercialised by tourism.
Grenada is one of those islands that offers something for everyone, and some of these are the charming, and quite affordable, hideaways that give you the chance to escape from the ‘hustle and bustle’ of everyday life.
