I’m leaving for Grenanda tonight, and I can’t wait to see The Spice of the Caribbean. It earned its nickname for nutmeg production and, well, its location in the Caribbean Sea. I’ve been to Caribbean islands before but never to one this far south — Grenada is about 200 miles northeast of Venezuela. My last trip to the Caribbean was in 2006 — a fabulous week in St. Thomas and St. John that included a lot of snorkeling. On my must-do list for Grenada is to snorkel at the Underwater Sculpture Park. But I think what I’m most excited for is to walk along the beach with the warm turquoise water lapping at my feet. I didn’t have a beach-y summer, as we opted for the more cultural aspects of Italy and Turkey. Bring on the sun and sand!
