Throughout our sailing slog southeast from the Bahamas to Grenada, we enjoyed some beautiful and interesting areas. However, we had left our sailing friends behind and there were very few kid boats. We were really looking forward to getting to Grenada and getting Mark and Conrad some friends their own age.
Grenada delivered on the kid boats and social opportunities. And how. There is a great group of boat kids in Prickly Bay that are right around the same age as Conrad and Mark. They have participated in book club, a chess tournament, movie night, and good old fashioned playtime.
|Kelly did a great chocolate tour at Belmont Estates.|
|Rainbow the talking parrot was a favorite among the kids.|
|Aziz at Options makes great shawarma and spiced rum,|
and has an outsized personality that draws a loyal following.
*Bingo night at Prickly Bay Marina is quite an experience. If you get Bingo and there are other winners, you have a dance off to see who gets the prize. Darren, the manager and emcee, dryly mocks Bingo winners and makes people run up on stage to get goofy raffle gifts such as adult diapers and goats (yes, live ones). But it's not just silly stuff: there are significant cash awards, which draws a crowd of locals, University students, and cruisers.
