Carriacou, Grenada in Brief
Walter II, and Linda are originally from West Virginia, USA. The state
slogan for "Mountain State" is "...Almost Heaven." Since August 21, 1991,
our family has been blessed to live on the beautiful island of Carriacou, a
possession of the "Spice Island" of Grenada. I believe a good slogan for the
smaller sister island of Carriacou is "...Next to Heaven." Take our
Virtual Tour of Carriacou and see if you agree.
Carriacou, and Grenada in general, are inhabited with friendly people
of mostly African ancestry. It is combined with the original West Indian Arawaks, and has
also been peppered with lineage from Europe, various parts of the Americas (including the
US), and Canada. In my opinion, the people here are a beautiful melting pot of humanity.
The current estimated population is around 6,000. (See the figure on the above welcome sign that was erected in the late 1990s)
The culture, like the people themselves, is a mixture of cultures
from all over the world. It is obviously colored by ancient African characteristics and
European traits, but the progressive nature of the population also reflects increasing
Carriacou is a down right beautiful island with breathtaking beaches
of ~14 square miles in area. The landscape varies from mountain peaks and ridges to
relatively flat coastal areas. The majestic mountainous ridges capped with a clear sky
depicts its volcanic geologic origin. The two highest peaks are just under 1000 feet.
Available are numerous guest houses, hotels, restaurants, diving
businesses, and agencies that provide tours and individual sightseeing. Many of the roads
are currently being replaced with pavement that will make the island an even more
desirable tourist attraction in years to come.
