A Lovely Weekend Trip to Grenada!!!
Last month, I made a quick journey to the Spice Island of Grenada in the Southern Caribbean. My very first Godson lives there, and it’s been 3 months since he was born. It was definitely time for me to meet him. I packed my bags the night before, and woke up at an atrocious hour in the morning for my flight down South. I had a bit of a delay in Barbados, but I luckily arrived at my destination only 2 hours later than originally expected.
It was so wonderful to see my best friend Rockebah and her gorgeous bouncing baby boy, Jaquawn. He stole my heart in a few seconds flat!
Grenada isn’t your typical Caribbean island. While there are a few lovely white sand beaches, most of its beauty is found within the center of the island. There’s a massive rainforest inland, with glorious green foliage and rolling hills as far as the eyes can see. It’s no surprise that Agriculture is a dominant industry there! The tiny roads wind through the countryside, with countless bends, ascents and a few steep descents. It was quite a stark contrast to my home island of Antigua!
Grand Anse beach is the most popular seaside spot in Grenada. The sand was gloriously golden, the water was a beautiful blue and the salty crisp sea breeze was stimulating. I took a quick dip in the water then retreated to a beach bar for a couple of drinks.
The next day, we went on a road trip through the island. I visited the Annadale waterfalls and Lake Grand Etang. These natural attractions were pretty amazing and well kept.
I’m definitely returning to this spectacular island by the end of this year! Grenada deserves more than just a whirlwind weekend trip and I’d love to see my lil’ man start to creep/crawl. I can’t wait!
