Jim’s Perspectives:

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

Then, I walked around downtown …

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