Trinidad And Tobago Day Seven: Grande Riviere: An Afternoon And Evening In A Tropical Paradise
Sorry it’s been awhile since I have been able to finish my blog posts on my trip to Trinidad and Tobago. I have been enjoying the Spring here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Well back to my first full day at the remote tropical village of Grande Riviere. I had a busy morning hiking the surrounding forest and beaches in this sleepy village. After a nice lunch at the Mt. Plaisir Estate Hotel I spent some enjoying the view of the ocean from the hotel dining room. I edited some photographs while I listened to the roar of the waves as they crashed on the beach.
It was hot under the tropical sun so I soon returned to my room to enjoy the air conditioning and continue to edit some photographs. Here is a link to a gallery with some more photographs from my hike. Trinidad and Tobago Day Seven Afternoon beach hike April 30 2019.
I was still tired from my long morning hike but i could never spend too much time in a hotel room in such a beautiful place. So, around 4 p.m. I left my room and hotel for another walk in the village.
I was almost back at the hotel when the clouds opened up and a warm tropical rain began to fall. I took cover under a roof and a house that was under construction and waited out the storm. It only lasted for about 15 minutes and soon the sun reappeared. However just as I reached my hotel another storm approached with another downpour. It was getting dark now and I showered, changed and enjoyed another nice meal. I was in bed early again. I set the alarm for 5;30. I hoped to see some more leatherback turtles on the beach in the morning. Here is a link to a gallery with some more photographs from my evening hike.
