Southern Caribbean Cruising — Grenada


Okay, it’s true. I skipped around a bit to encompass the ABC Islands in one long series. But now I’m back to covering other Southern Caribbean destinations we hit beyond that. This week and next I’ll show you the island of Grenada in the Windward Islands of the West Indies. This was our view from Grandeur of the Seas when we docked in the capital city of St. George’s:

At around 8:40 a.m. on 22 February 2022 we disembarked and headed toward town.

Looking toward the hill above, one of the first things you’ll notice here is the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception:

We were about to head on into town on foot when we ran into Garfield St. Louis who offered a tour. If you’re looking for a tour, you can’t do much better than Garfield. He will definitely give you your money’s worth. We had a wonderful time touring the island with him.

So, we climbed in Garfield’s chariot and took off into the Grenada’s interior. Deep into the interior, as we climbed uphill toward some waterfalls, Garfield took us to a spice shop. After all, we are on the Spice Isle, right? Here we have a sampling:

Putting the “nut” in nutmeg
Yep… cinnamon is actually a tree bark
Locally grown fruits
More nutmeg
Turmeric and ginger

After the spice vendor we continued on to see a pair of waterfalls. The first, Shodoo Waterfall, is free and easily visible from Constantine road:

The second will cost you a few bucks. This is Annandale Waterfall & Forest Park. You first step into gift shop to buy a ticket. But make sure you look around before taking the short hike to the waterfall:

Time to hit the trail:
