It was a wonderful wonderful trip!
Where the Ultra Trail Goddess goes Snorkelling
We "slept in" almost to 730 am. I was pretty hungry, so we showered and went next door to the Kalinago Resort.
I forgot how some things are in Grenada. I ordered the cod for breakfast...only to be told it was out. I then ordered the Creole fish with green bananas..no bananas. So I had toast. (It's a pretty common thing for items to be missing from Grenada menus. Sometimes it is easier to ask them what they do have.)
After breakfast, it was off to the Spiceland Mall IGA to lay in provisions for the week. We have the kitchenette at the Gem, so we wanted to make sure to have food for simple meals and especially breakfast. Besides, Dennis loves to cook.
Lambi is conch. Roti is the pastry, made from chick pea flour, that it is wrapped in. The filling is actually lambi and potatoes, in a curry spice. But I had forgotten how HUGE these roti were!
I still managed to eat all of it.
After lunch, it was beach time-FINALLY!!!!!
We had dinner at Sangria's; excellent octopus carpaccio and lambi ceviche, but the marlin was a bit over cooked and service was very slow. We had to go find out check as the waitress didn't seem inclined to bring it to us.
We settled in at our outside table, and ended up talking to all of neighbors as they walked by.
A pretty good vacation beginning!
