True Blue Christmas Bazaar

Sunday was fun, attending a Christmas Bazaar at the True Blue Resort. This is a pretty resort, small and intimate, just west of Prickly Bay, Grenada. Since we’re anchored farther east in Clarkes Court Bay, we took a van over with a bunch of other cruisers. Lots of local artists exhibit their wares at the bazaar, including many artistic and crafty cruisers that we know: Vee on Blues Breaker, Cynthia on Minx, Sue on Luludu, and Helen on Iguana. When we attended two years ago, I bought a couple of pretty shell ornaments decorated with crystals, and it turns out that I bought them from Sue, though I didn’t know her then. The resort just opened their new Blue Haven Spa, and Lori on Reality Check and I received their very first massages – they were providing free mini-massages to honor the occasion. Very nice. We browsed and bought a couple of little things – killer guava preserves and hot pepper jam made from all local ingredients, and a small woven tray made by a local folks with disabilities –  then had a cool libation and chatted with friends until our ride returned to pick us up. The wind was howling, so the dinghy ride back to the boat was pretty wet, and we jumped in the water for a swim before rinsing off.

Oooh, rum punch with fresh-grated nutmeg on top!
