Jim’s Perspectives:

While in Grenada in 2016 I explored this picturesque island … and discovered the beaches on Anse are worth writing home about!

Then, I walked around downtown …

And saw some interesting sights … such as a young man walking his goat …

Then took in “The Christ of the Deep” sculpture on the wharf in St. Georges. It was gifted to Grenada by a cruise line for assistance given to an Italian ship destroyed by fire.

Hearing fervent and spirit-led clapping and singing, I followed the sound and attended a church service, the highlight of my stay in Grenada!
