Maracas/Mount St. Benedict Trip!

Hallo, Wie gehts? *Hello, How are you?* German ๐Ÿ™‚ This trip was a blessing and a lessonย  as well alongside my bestie, her sister Denise, a family friend Awong and myself! We had originally planned to go Toco but God changed our plans and led us to go Maracas instead.

To be honest I was disappointed because of the change and during the week God was speaking to us and showing us where He wanted us to go instead but we weren’t seeing it until the day came and we learnt why He wanted us to go Maracas! I learnt that to go where God wants you to go and NOT where you want to go. Due to us repenting for our stubbornness and obedience to His guide, He blessed us with another trip surprisingly! Thank you Lord! You are great!

Maracas is known as one of the most picturesque bays on the islands due to several tourists that visited de island commentary, that’s located on the North Coast Peninsula of Trinidad. It’s one of the most popular beaches here and although before I had disagreed on it not being the most beautiful bay, I take that back!

Seeing it in real away from pictures on the internet is B R E A T H E T A K I N G โค My goodness! I never knew Trinidad was so scenic! What a blessed country God placed me to live in! It’s truly a gem friends. It. Truly. Is.
The road to the bay run through tall, hemispheric, mountains that overlooks the village of Maracas and also other bays that are private and separated from each other by mountains & valleys. Before you reach the beach location, there is a magnificent lookout that Dee and myself took pictures of on our way home…or so we thought! ๐Ÿ˜‰
The first roll of pics were taken by Dee! Enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜€ย

The bay was very hospitable to us by offering us fresh fruits with a pinch of salt & sand! ๐Ÿ˜‰ย

This bridge on the beach takes you over the river that intersects/runs into the sea to a mini play park for the kiddies and vendors alongside the other end of the bay that sells sweet tasty, local delicacies and other treats! ๐Ÿ™‚ It was worth crossing lol!ย

Each mountain is shaped as a different animal that separate the bays from the lookout. The first one, a turtle, second a dolphin and the third a crocodile! Do you see them? We did!

I would NEVER forget how strong the Lord’s presence, love & peace was felt here when I stared otherworldly at His majestic creations! I saw His greatness before my eyes and had to burst out in praises to the King โค God. Is. REAL!!!!

After capturing images, wailing constantly in ohs and ahs, discussing after lunch about the Lord and His Word, walking the large bay from beginning to end and from the end back to the beginning, trying to assist a guy with his phone camera, interrupting a wedding *somewhat* lol, pondering whether to bathe or not and well it was a lot of pondering we did and our feet decided to happily enjoyed the sea bathe instead for the body, so yeah ๐Ÿ˜ฅ lol we were sad about our departure buttttt little did we know that we were heading into another adventure, when we lately noticed that our route to home did not. Look. Familiar….!

When we questioned Awong and he told us Mount St. Benedict, we couldn’t be more excited for we always wanted to visit there! God is so good!

Mount St. Benedict is located in the Northwestern vicinity ofย  St. Augustine, Tunapuna on top of a very high, wining hill that overlooks the East/Southern side of Trinidad. It’s rich in history and also in beauty if you’d asked me ๐Ÿ˜‰ it holds a church, school and other facilities. To know more about Mount St. Benedict you can click on this link:- http://www.mountstbenedictabbey.org

The drive was soothing and the views were stunning on our way there. We didn’t get much time to venture around/ take photo’s because service was going on and they were just about to close, but the 10-15 minutes was worth the panoramic view, tranquility & mediating on God’s Word that I saw operating in life before me…ย

Overall it was a blessed & enjoyable trip! We ended it with thanks to Almighty && purchasing de best tasting street food on de Avenue at night doubles! It was so good as per usual!
