Summertime in the tropics

October 19, 2017

Summertime -in the tropics? It’s not something I can recommend but the one good thing is that it has saved us from the devastating effects of the hurricanes that  have ravaged the northern windward islands of the Caribbean.



Love both versions

We haven’t been very adventurous preferring to stay in Grenada for the past three months enjoying the various Grenadian offerings of carnival, waterfall visits, jerk chicken and occasionally a movie at the local theatre (best show yet has been Bladerunner 2040).

We have also managed to get a little bit of work done on the boat. We hauled out at the end of September, Connie returned to Ontario and I  have been getting the odd jobs done on the boat while on dry land and then re-launched where work continued.  We should be ready for the winter season and a migration that will take us northwards.

Food is always of interest. I won’t say the Caribbean is the food-hounds paradise. Choices vary from jerk chicken to fish with what they call provisions which is things such as plantain, breadfruit, taro and potatoes

St. George’s is built on a hillside so as soon as one leaves the core it’s climb up the hill with the positive results of getting nice views

View overlooking St. George’s harbour towards the marina we are in called Port Louis

Now Grenada does have great chocolate. This is my favourite downtown shop also known as the chocolate museum. Has great milkshakes

Then there are the rum factories. here is one still using a water wheel to crush the cane. There’s such a variety of rum one can have a great time sampling them all

And then there are always the dramas that happen.

    What the hell happened to the trimaran? Crocodile feeding frenzy?

      Good question. Written off by the insurance company and bought by someone for $1. Was not the result of a hurricane but rather navigational error
