This week, I’ve been dipping my toes in the Caribbean waters of the Grenadines. St Vincent and the Grenadines to give it its full title – and since St Vincent’s is the main island it seems almost disrespectful not to.
To locals, however, St Vincent’s is Vincy and the whole speckled island flock goes by the name of SVG.
It’s an interesting flock, full of clean beaches, palm trees and pineapple-spiced jerk but it also has plenty of character beyond the brochure. Black volcanic sand, a volcano to climb that leads up into the clouds, a turtle sanctuary, a thing called breadfruit and much more besides.
I’d tell you more about it, but unfortunately I’ve just had my first ever bout of seasickness and my hands are still trembling over the keyboard. So please excuse the runty travel sick writer with a note from matron and sit back and enjoy the photos. I’m off to look at a horizon and to get some fresh air and I hope to be back with you shortly.
Disclosure: I am dipping my toes in St Vincent’s and the Grenadines thanks to DiscoverSVG. All words, pictures, opinions and seasickness are most definitely my own.
