Aka Gre-yay-da

It was amazing to escape the cool of Edmonton’s December for a week in Grenada. Brett and I flew down with his parents, Dan and Heather, to meet his sister, Marcy, who had just finished veterinary school at St. George's University. We enjoyed amazing weather and a variety of island activities. And when we weren't out adventuring, we enjoyed time by the pool of our amazing villa.
