Grenada

Grenada is an island country and Commonwealth Realm consisting of the island of Grenada and six smaller islands at the southern end of the Grenadines in the southeastern Caribbean Sea. Grenada is located northwest of Trinidad and Tobago, northeast of Venezuela, and southwest of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Grenada is also known as the “Island of Spice” due to the production of nutmeg and mace crops of which Grenada is one of the world’s largest exporters.

Its size is 344 square kilometres (133 sq mi), with an estimated population of 110,000. Its capital is St. George’s. The national bird of Grenada is the critically endangered Grenada Dove.

THIS is where we plan to spend the hurricane season and are excited to be on our way there very soon.  Right now it is raining like crazy in Puerto Rico – so, here we still sit, waiting for the weather to improve.

We did make some progress toward our trip though and found our new ‘home’ in Grenada – Port Louis Marina in the lagoon at St. George, Grenada.

Our New home – mid July to December – doesn’t it look great????

    Your travels are so interesting. Thank you for sharing them! Great idea to keep an online journal . . . and to share it with friends!

    Your “New Home” from mid July to December looks beautiful in the photo you posted.

    My Captain, Tom, and I, wish you fair winds, a seabreeze, dolphin friends all the way to your next safe harbor, and all the adventures that come with life at sea!

    Be safe. Know that we love you! Connie & Tom
