Grenada Vacation Photo Diary Part 2

Grenada Vacation Photo Diary

Grenada Vacation Photo Diary

Before I left for vacation in Grenada, I read a post from one of my favorite bloggers, Marie ofΒ GoodLooknOut. I felt like she was peeking into my thoughts LOL. I know you’re probably wondering what on earth her post has to do with vacation photos, right?

Her post made the connection between leading a “simple life”Β and keeping a permanentΒ smile on your face. I was nodding (and smiling) through the entire post. Read the postΒ HERE

I’ve always been a fuss free kind of person, but sometimes you can get bogged down with all kinds of “stuff” that you need to let go. This vacation was the perfect disconnect I needed in order to reconnect and simplify πŸ™‚

Now on to the pics. Thanks for all your wonderful comments and feedback on the last set of pics. I hope you enjoy these.

PLACES

We definitely got in a healthy dose of sand and sea πŸ™‚ The beach is the perfect place to sit, relax and think.

FOOD
To say I ate well is an understatement. I have the ill fitting pants to prove it too.
I did however make sure that I ate all the local fruits I could find, to balance things out a bit πŸ™‚

Ceylon Mangoes. These are SOOO good. You must try them if you get a chance.

These are called “sea grapes”. They are mainly found on the beaches.

    Awwww, I feel like I’m right there. The beach is calling me. I don’t think we have sea grapes in Jamaica. I will have to ask my mom because I surely don’t remember them. The mangoes look like what we can stringies in Ja. Yum to all of it. Can’t wait to see the video from your meetup

      We have some called “Cali” that tend to have a lot of “string” too. These are smooth and “cheesy” if that makes sense lol.
