Grenada March 2022   We left Martinique for Grenada.  It was a 27 hour motor/sail.   The view of the island upon approach is quite stunning; Grenada is mountainous.

We had reservations at the Port St. Louis Marina in St. George's.  The marina is very nice with a restaurant, an ATM, laundry service as well as boat repair companies.  We plan to have some boat repairs done during hurricane season and return in November.  The repairs include replacing the galley countertop, replacing canvas for the bimini and cockpit cushions, as well as for the interior cushions.

Grenada has a private medical school, St. George's University.  We have met several people in the U.S. who attend the school for medical and vetinerary training.  In fact, one of our vets in Los Altos, CA graduated from this school.  They have many international students.  The school is located near the water, and we have eaten several times at Container Park at the university. The food stalls offer good food such as sushi, burgers, Mexican, Indian and other cuisines.  It's located on True Blue really is truly blue!

We went hiking in the mountains.  It's very lush due to frequent rain, and there's lots of plants including orchids, ginger, heliconia and fruit trees.

We hiked several waterfalls, including the Seven Sisters falls.

Afterwards, we had the local drinks, Ting (a grapefruit drink) and Carib (the local beer).  Sooo refreshing!

We rented a cute house located in Crochu Harbor.  It was very relaxing and adjacent to the sea.

We'll be leaving our boat at the marina until we return in the November, but not before visiting beautiful Grande Anse Beach.
