A Magical Place

A little while ago, I had the chance to explore an amazing and magical place, high up in the mountains where a lovely breeze is always blowing. The place is Jenny's farm. Jenny is a British ex-pat who has been living in Grenada for 16 years. She grows fresh produce on her farm and sells it to cruisers. She also started her own organization for helping animals in Grenada. She invited a bunch of cruisers to come to a potluck lunch on her farm.

On her farm, Jenny has five or six rescue dogs, three donkeys, a couple chickens, and a huge pig. She also has many different plants and trees. She let us explore her house and yard, and the younger kids got to ride the donkeys.

She also took us to a small river on her property, where we could cool off. We had a fantastic potluck lunch, with lots of wonderful food. I had a great time, and I would go back any time I was welcome. The pictures convey some of the magic of this beautiful place.
