Grenada – The Spice of the Caribbean
November 2-10th, 2005
 

November 3 – off to a great start with breakfast then a tour of St. George’s and area. First stop was Fort Frederick then Fort George http://www.forts.org/history.htm with local guide, historian and writer Beverly Steele who wrote Grenada: A History of Its People. We then enjoyed lunch at the Ocean Grill and Michael Jessamy took us afterwards on a walking tour of the Grenada National Museum. The remnants of Ivan were still visible on the island…look at the church without a roof, but there was a lot of rebuilding being done…this country needs tourism to survive so they were very well aware of how fast they had to get Grenada back together. On the way back to our hotel, we stopped at a market, which was a lot of fun to go through.

We had the opportunity to meet with the Grenada Board of Tourism

We then had dinner at our hotel.
