Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah…

IMG_3246Here I am at Camp Grenada!!!

This place is awesome!

And we love it.

We just can’t seem to get close to enough of it.

IMG_3316We went hiking with s/v Ventus

They shared chocolate and waterfalls with us.

 

Lunch at Belmont Estate was yummy.

Local buffet made especially for our tummies.

IMG_3285The chocolate tour by our friend Meshach

Showed us how to make a great snack.

We ate chocolate.  And more chocolate.

We pet the goats, the kids ran wild, adults just talked a lot.

Beautiful Belmont

IMG_3325Our adventure took us by bus

Locals laughed and rolled eyes at us.

But we made it start to finish

With Marley getting just a touch of carsickness.

IMG_4303We made it home

To MarVyn safe and sound!

We made it home

We love Grenada

We won’t leave from here til we have

Had enough of fun time in the sun….

IMG_3239

IMG_4315We made it home

We’re back off solid ground again.

Lots to do in town but then

Relax and make a special treat

We’ve been here one whole week!

The several pictures above and this one are from the Le Phare Bleu property, including our friends from s/v Britican at the pool.

IMG_4328Dearest Faddah, Darling Muddah,

I can’t believe we need more buttah.

A trip to St. George does the trick

And we’ll eat more nutmeg ice cream til we get sick!

IMG_4375Wait a minute!

Sun is setting.

Breezes so light

In gentle night.

Life is so sweet!

Muddah, Faddah, how can it be so complete?!

IMG_4317
Fun. And fun. And more fun. With Britican.

Mt. Carmel Falls—this is what they did when we said it was time to go!
