A short taxi ride leads us through the bustling capital St. George's and onward to the lower waterfall of Concord. After a delicious snack, we endeavor the upper waterfall and begin our hike through the jungle.
Passing nutmeg plantations, we scent the concoction of fragrances from citrus, vanilla and cinnamon.
The roaring of the waterfall gets louder and the jungle opens up. A fine mist descends like a curtain in front of the waterfall. Shy streaks of sunshine amalgamate with the pounding waters to a rainbow.
We are at our destination - or is it destiny? Like young kids, Dominic and I splash in the cool water of the natural pool - celebrating our invigorated youth. Holding each other, we watch this eternal display of nature.
Arriving at the base, Matthew our driver greets us with his gracious smile. Does he recognize our transition? His mild and quiet attitude is a treasure as we are still embraced by our memories of this walk. We hardly notice the trip back to our "Secret Harbour".
