Grenada is also known as the Spice Isle because it is the leading producer of most well-known major spices. In fact, as a souvenir, we bought several spices wrapped in lauhala boxes. Here's some nutmeg =)
The island is so green and lush and on the way to the river tubing site, we were up here at some point.
And here's the view
We also passed two friendly monkeys on the way. They were both very friendly and knew how to socialize.
And smart too! Look, this one's peeling his own banana.
We took a picture with this lady displaying cacao (or cocoa) which is the base for all chocolate products.
And what do you know, a chocolate tree!
And the beach was equally beautiful as the other islands we've been to. The sand was perfect with hardly any rocks or corals along the shoreline, and the beach was perfectly calm. It's almost as if the islands were having a contest on which one has the best beach. This was my favorite (so far!).
I have yet to upload the river tubing pictures which was a lot of fun. Oh, what I would give to be on the beach again! Although, I can't really complain about the nice warm weather we're having just a few days shy of spring. 17 degrees, baby! I should spend more of it outside, and actually get some sun =)
