Hiya Guys! I know I’ve been super delinquent but I promise there’s a really good reason for that. Wanna know why I’ve been missing in action for so long? Well, I’ll tell you…I was in St. Vincent and the Grenadines for 5 long weeks. It was my first visit home in what seems to be forever and man did I enjoy myself. In fact, I’m planning to return in a few months. I just cannot wait. If you’re interested in reading more about the lovely and gorgeous St. Vincent & The Grenadines, you can do so right HERE
So I won’t bore you with loads of words about my trip but just know I ate, slept, partied, drank and enjoyed the heck out of life for 5 weeks. I spent Christmas and New Year’s Day there so it basically the perfect way to end 2012 and begin 2013. My friends, my country is soooo beautiful and I’m not just saying that. Judge for yourself. Oh and feel free to click on the pics for a larger and clearer view of all this beauty.
Look at that water!
This is a view of part of the capital, Kingstown….
Woke up to this view of the sun rising one morning and just felt like the luckiest woman alive.
Not only do we have gold sand and white sand beaches but we also have black sand beaches because of the volcano present on the main island.
One morning, a guy just stopped by after meeting me the day before & brought a bag of mangoes. Man was I glad!
This is what we call a sugar apple. It’s all bumpy and not very pretty on the outside but on the inside it’s pulpy, seedy and sweeeeeet!
Now on to the food & drinks! I ate out almost every day. Man was it good stuff.
Fish boileen (like a broth but with ground provisions sometimes present)
BBQ chicken lunch…
Stewed Saltfish & Breadfruit…
And the drinks. I can’t tell you what half of them are now because I was drinking thorough my entire trip and my memory is shot :(
On my last full day in the island, I managed to capture the sun setting. I actually teared up at the beauty knowing that I had to leave the next day. Soon I’ll be back there again. I’m just counting down now.
I’m not promising that I’ll be posting recipes soon because I’m still in vacation mode but just know that I’m still around and I appreciate all my readers and eFriends. You guys are awesome. Thanks for the understanding and your continued readership!
Bye For Now…..
