Island tour

The kids and I went exploring yesterday and did a tour of the island with a local guide. It was an interesting day full of learning. We heard about Grenada’s history as a colony and becoming independent from 1974. Hurricane Ivan caused massive destruction in 2004 killing 40 people and destroying most of the nutmeg trees, Grenada’s most important export product. We saw cocoa, nutmeg, cinnamon trees, coffee plants and many different herbs and spices. To top it all off we visited a small organic chocolate factory where we learnt about the chocolate making process. And finally we stopped at a waterfall for a refreshing dive!
