The winter solstice is nearly here, and I’m working hard at embracing the beauty of cold and darkness. Nonetheless, it’s hard not to think about warmth and sunshine. Carriacou, West Indies. Yes, Carriacou does pretty much look just like a perfect postcard of sun and sand. But the sentiment on this little house represents what I really love about Carriacou:
That about sums it up, doesn’t it? This is a variation on a quote from Mother Teresa, but Mother Teresa added a directive to each observation: “Life is beautiful: Admire It.” I like the way this fellow just puts the observations out there and lets us decide what to do with them. The only time I saw the owner of this house, he was busy washing his hair in the yard, and I was too shy to talk to him. But I think he’s wonderful.
More of my favorite Carriacou spots:
Thank you Cindy for the reminder that the least touristy destinations are the best….and teach us the most. No matter where you travel though, you always need to watch out for those intoxicated liquors.
I know! Nothing worse than rum that’s intoxicated from the get go. Thanks for commenting, MPD!
Green peas soup! Reminds me of a restaurant in Puerto Angel, Oaxaca that was serving aspergrass.
Hey! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this post to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!
