As we didn't have a trip booked for Grenada, once ashore we set off to explore the steep narrow streets and pastel coloured houses.
We found something we weren't expecting and very British
a red telephone box!
Being Sunday the shops were closed but there were two young men on the quayside selling fragrant necklaces made of spices such as nutmeg and cloves. The first man offered me three for $10 and the second one offered me two for $10. When I pointed out to the second man that I could get three for the same price he offered me four for $10 so I bought them. I gave one each to my MIL and two DILs and kept one for myself which is hanging in my bedroom. Two months on it is still fragrant and reminds me of our cruise each time I smell it.
Lots of the buildings were festooned with bunting in preparation for Grenada's Independence Celebrations in early February.
We stopped at a restaurant/bar on the quayside for a much needed drink and struck up a conversation with a charming Canadian family, who kindly offered to take our photograph before they moved on.
