I lounge on a rock with my feet soaking in the crystal waters of the Caribbean. Is this really my back yard? Pinch me.

Some of the more subtle joys of living on a tropical island for months at a time is the ability to get a real feel for the rhythm of nature. You need to be present for a while to sense and understand things like the ocean’s tides, and the cycles of flora and fauna that take place so very quickly in this warm humid environment conducive to explosive growth.

One beautiful barometer I’ve had to observe these cycles of life is my (almost) daily walk.

I enjoy following the beach I live on to the end, climbing through some mangrove roots, and heading up into the forest enroute to the adjacent bay – a beautiful crescent that has lots of “emerald pools” of beautiful water that begets the beauty of an aquamarine.

Although this is a destination unto itself perfect for a swim, the swim can wait. Another push of energy takes me up a hill to an abandoned road sheltered by trees that eventually leads me to the end of the next point. Here I’m tousled by the wind and surrounded by deep bays on both sides; one with a harbour nestled next to shore, the other a wide shallow quiet bay.

I described this walk in greater detail in a recent post when I was just discovering my surroundings and learning to be alone in Grenada.

Having become so enamoured with this (almost) daily sojourn hiking in Grenada, I’ve put together a video of the experience so you can come along! Enjoy.

  1. @Baron’s – Thank you very much! You’ve been one of my most avid readers and commenters, and I’d like to thank you for reaching out and for the great sharing of thoughts and ideas we’ve enjoyed this year.
    To another wonderful year of travel, inspiration, and conversation!

  2. Nora,

    To another year…I’m looking forward to, one day, reading a book about your adventures in travel…for your writing style and approach reminds me of Paul Theroux…if you haven’t read any of his works…I suggest you try him…next time you’re looking for some reading material…
    I recommend:
    The Great Railway Bazaar

    Cheers and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year to you


  3. @Berge – I haven’t read The Great Railway Bazaar, but I have read Theroux’s Patagonian Express, and as a love of both train travel and travel literature, I very much enjoy his writing.
    So thanks for the recommendation, and thanks for the compliment by suggesting that my style even comes close to his! (*blushing*)

  4. Very Nice Video and very nice girl!

    ( Never watched a video about you before! )

    But your skin was white like milk!!
