Too old? Are you kidding?
Would you believe that we actually see comments from people in their 40s asking if they’re too old to do what we’re doing? Hello… just how old do you think we are? For the record, when it comes to cruising, we’re probably in the middle of the pack age wise, with a good percentage of those out here a fair bit older than we are.
You may have noticed that I mentioned in yesterday’s post that we were heading out to climb nearby Diamond Rock (aka Diamond Island, Kick ‘Em Jenny) again. If you followed the link that I posted which detailed our first trip up that isolated peak, you’d have read that our trip was lead by 72 yr. old Grenadian hiking master Telfor. Now, almost exactly one year later and another year older, Telfor was back with machete in hand to repeat that trek. Inspiring? I’d say so. Too old? Hardly!
And so it begins… a 45 minute ride from the north end of Grenada.
There is no real place to land the boats so getting ashore is a bit sketchy.
That large pole is now affixed at the top of Diamond Rock, complete with Grenadian Flag.
Check it out as you sail past!
Ronde Island, with Grenada in the distance.
Telfor at the top. Happy birthday!
