Flag of Grenada  , St. George,
Wednesday, February 20, 2013

The tropical island of Grenada lies at the southernmost tip of the arch formed by the islands of the lesser Antilles Grenadines. Grenada is known as the "spice island" as it is the larger producer in the Western Hemisphere of nutmeg (second largest in the world before hurricane Ivan in 2004) and other spices including cloves and cinnamon. The island is volcanic in origin and is lush with tropical forests and white sandy beaches.

Another morning shower gave way to partly cloudy skies. Today we elected to take another shore excursion this time a jeep tour of Grenada and its famous hot sulfur pools. Our tour began in St George and made its way up into the hills and over to the eastern Atlantic coast. Our jeep went from "tour" to "adventure" according to our guide when we encountered a thinly graveled road and a fallen tree. Our hike up to the pond was a bit slick due to the morning rains. However the springs were refreshing and complimented by fresh mangos and cocoa beans from the area.

Upon return we had departures from the town and prepared for day at sea. Photos and uploads later due to lack of Internet on the island. Friday is our next stop in St Thomas, our last port of call.

Beware of any unexploded ordinance from the U.S. invasion!
