Last Postcard from Grenada

I spent my last couple of hours in Grenada putting together this post. I hit publish, boarded the plane, and got back today. Only when I hit publish, my post disappeared into some unknown ether. Gone from drafts to nowhere I can find, so I have just put it together again, with a very sleepy head.

Recipes, Grenada restaurants and more soon. Enjoy my last postcard for now :)

    Lovely pictures, sets the scene for the recipes and news:) Sorry you lost the first draft always happens at the most crucial time IMHO and experience!

  2. Great photos…..wonderful to see that Grenada has not changed much in the last 35 years….hope the bites get better soon…don’t scratch them !

  3. Your pictures of Grenada are wonderful and bring back happy memories of when we were lucky enough to go on a cruise, and we were the first cruise ship to land there in 1984 (I think) after the American invasion of the island. The islanders were so pleased to see us, and we just loved the relaxed atmosphere and the boxes of fresh nutmegs. Hope to go back some day and just chill out and take an extra suitcase for all those spices. Bet you had a wonderful time.
