Grenadine Islands Appeal Captured in a Photograph

Grenadine Islands

While snow storms and arctic chills sweep across the United States, we’d like to share a warming, tropical photo to help thaw you out a bit. Jason Pratt took this photograph of a man casting his fishing net off the shores of the Grenadine Islands.

As Wikipedia tells us:

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is a nation in the Lesser Antilles chain, which lies at the eastern border of the Caribbean Sea where it meets the Atlantic Ocean. Its 389-square-kilometre (150 sq mi) territory consists of the main island of Saint Vincent and the northern two-thirds of the Grenadines, which are a chain of smaller islands stretching south from Saint Vincent to Grenada.

To the north of St. Vincent lies St. Lucia, to the east Barbados, and to the south Grenada. Saint Vincent and the Grenadines has an estimated population of 120,000 and the capital is Kingstown. The country has a French and British colonial history and is now part of the Commonwealth of Nations and CARICOM.
