Leaving Concord Falls behind- driving through Belvedere Estate




I was saddened to leave the beautiful concord falls but we were taking a drive through the countryside of Grenada and it was already late afternoon.

The drive back out was filled with talk of the amazing beauty and sheer wonder of the Falls. How powerful it sounded and how pristine it was. We continued along the road towards Gouyave, a fishing village on the western side of the island- looking at the villagers from the community sitting at the side of the road, enjoying their sunday afternoon sunshine, some were in the park watching a local football match, some were bathing in the sea. There were mothers, aunts and sisters combing the hair of young ones , family members even neighbours/ friends.

We decided to go through the interior of the island for a change, taking the road to Clozier, through the Belvedere Estate. On the way there, we passed an area where some friends of ours had a picnic by the river. I took a few pics of the riverbed as I am always fascinated by the way a rocky riverbed looks.





The road through the Belvedere estate is a very bumpy road, so you would definitely need a 4 wheel drive. We didnt meet many cars along the way and the scenery was varied.




We passed fields of banana trees where the fruits were covered with blue plastic bags with vented holes. I was told it was to protect against insects, birds etc.



We drove on and as we rounded a bend I was awestruck at the height of two palm trees in an adjacent field. It was at least over 100 ft tall. I said 'we have to stop..I must take some photos of these trees'



I was amazed, I got back into the car and we continued driving through the estate. I was still looking for more pics to tell my story of this beautiful countryside. Well I got just that.. the road pass through this beautiful canopy ...
I said just one word 'Wow!' Then I said 'isn't this place just beautiful....' I haven't taken so many pictures in a long while. It was truly amazing...

Hope you enjoyed this little journey with me and will be back with more of my travels through Grenada.

My little secret pool/garden I saw at Concord Falls

Hi there. Welcome back. You're probably wondering about my little secret pool/garden. Well when I began taking photos of the waterfall, I happened to look down from the road towards a building, which was situated across the way of the waterfall and I said WOW.... look how beautiful. It was like a little secret pool/garden.



The water was clean and clear and the vegetation around the pool gave it a sort of unspoiled appearance. Apparently my secret garden/pool was a continuation of a small waterfall across the way where we parked. The water fell from the hills above the roadway, then gathered in a pool there which then continued under the roadway and emptied into my secret pool.



Here is another pic of my secret pool..that I photographed.

Taking a drive to the Concord waterfall in Grenada




Hi there everyone..I'm taking a little break from card making....

From my subject line you can tell that I'm in Grenada- a small island in the caribbean sea. A couple days ago my dear bf and I took a drive around the island and decided to find the waterfall. We have passed the sign to it may be a hundred times and we never explored the route there.

So on seeing the sign we took the gentle sloping road to the right which said 'Concord Waterfall- 2 miles'....and the journey began. We passed a few houses along the way which then gave out to vegetation. After driving for a while, we saw the sign saying 'Concorde Waterfalls- 1 mile' so we kept driving as we were determined to find it that day and then there it was.... This beautiful majestic falls.


I looked back at the road from whence we came and took a pic of it. Even that was beautiful...



I took a few more pics of the area from the top of the road across from the Concord falls which were just so amazing.



In my next post you will see a secret pool and garden that got its start in another waterfall across the way.. Thanks for stopping by...
