We first stopped at the volcano area. Everywhere, boiling mud, steam, and the tang of sulphur. Surreal. It was more restricted than when I went to Iceland and just strolled amongst the hot pots and steam vents.
Next up was the botanic gardens, where we had a nice easy walk on our own. It seemed deserted and special. Along the way, there were samples of cocoa beans, nutmeg, and other fruits and flowers, all with informative signs. There was a nice waterfall, and we did a honeymoon shot in front of it, probably just like every other couple who has visited that very spot.
Just as we were leaving the area, multiple vans arrived with hoardes of cruise shippers - perfect timing on our part! We peeled out and back to Anse Chastenet.
Back at the hotel we packed up and had lunch before that nausea-inducing ride back to the airport. :^p Next stop: Canouan!
