This will not be an easy task despite the relative small size of the island, as I have a regular 9-5 job... well not exactly 9-5 as I work shift, so lets just stay at employed full-time and the escalating gas price. Nonetheless, I intend to explore the island during the course of the summer and visit some of the known well attractions that I have not been to like, Lover's Leap, YS Falls, Summerset Falls (yes I haven't been there although I'm from Portland), and also the almost unknown attractions hidden all over the island. So I have a lot of places to visit this summer.
I have already started the ball a rolling, yes nah hesitate at all! Last week Tuesday I loaded up my camera and my gas tank and headed up to the hills! I was on my way to Catstleton Gardens nestled in the mountains that extend to the parish of St. Mary. I have always driven past Castleton Gardens on my very frequent trips to Portland, but had never taken the timeout to stop and explore the park. So I made it my mission to go there and explore! It was nice, not a garden with a lot of flowers, but it certainly had a lot of greenery and lush vegetation all around. Castleton Gardens, is the kind of place that you would just go to relax on a Sunday afternoon with your family or friends and have a nice picnic. I enjoyed the time I spent there, even though I didn't do much more than walk around and take pictures. but it was relaxing nevertheless. There is a soup man on the road side right beside the parking area, him mek a wicked piece a soup deh, with chicken foot and corn! If you go to Castleton, make sure you buy a cup.
You must be wondering where are the picture? Well I have posted them on my photoblog, my World My Lens, and also here are the thumbnails below, you can click on them for the larger picture. I will be posting some more during the course of the week.
Where will I be heading next? I have no idea, but stay tuned for more in the Amazing Island Exploration of the Stunner!
