Adventure Jeep day tour to the waterfalls and the sulphur pond

And so, another day in Grenada, I was now falling in love with this place and wished my holiday didn't have to end. Today's agenda was another day trip. Given the size of the island, I'd seen most of the big parts with Thursday's tour so I wasn't really holding out for a miracle. But I figured it had to be better than staying in the hotel room or just wandering around town for a second straight day. I was quite pleased that I get to go in the big jeeps they'd advertised on Tripadvisor and on a lot of websites, the truly "authentic" way to see Grenada island as they put it.
Pickup was at 9am. It was just me and a charming British couple staying at the Grenadian. The hotels that are closer to the airport seem to be posher than the ones in Grand Anse. Or maybe just more commercial? Eitherway this looked like a good place.
And from here was the event of the day - the Sulphur Pond. The pond by itself is really small and muddy. But it was the whole experience - the rough hilly roads, the greenery, the guide explaining the difference between planations and forestation to us (and we still couldn't tell the difference!).
Lunch break was at the Estuary - the food was so so but the setting was spectacular. And I loved how it's not very popular with the tourists so it was relatively quiet. I loved the open windows, the breeze, the view in the "backyard" overlooking a stream meeting the sea, very very nice! We finished lunch by 230pm and were on our way back home by 330p. Said our goodbyes, and I came back to the hotel room, watched some NFL and caught sunset on the beach. Dinner was at the usual, and went for a walk to Spiceland Mall. Was a relaxing day overall, spent the night packing (yep, I start packing a bit too early!) whilst watching TV.
