Sea Biscuit Blog_Pretty Mas Grenada Carnival (23 of 30)

 

 

Visiting sailors on the island use shorthand to describe the various events of carnival. J’ouvert, the pre-dawn street party is “dirty mas”, Monday Night Mas is “night mas” and most iconic event of Carnival, the Parade of the Bands, is “pretty mas”.

Unfortunately, I’d unwittingly booked my flight to Maine for the day of pretty mas. After getting just a few hours of sleep following the night mas and dirty mas festivities from the day before, it was time to make my way to the airport for a day of travel from Grenada to JFK to Portland.

Lucky for me, Captain Brian stayed behind in Grenada with his camera and snapped tons of great shots of the pretty mas festivities. So many, it almost feels like I was there myself. Check it out!

Masking my exhaustion from the previous day’s J’ouvert and Monday Night Mas like a boss, hustling to the airport in time to beat the street closures before pretty mas clogged up the streets. What’s in the bags? Loads of clothes and shoes from my liveaboard working days in NYC that proved too impractical for #boatlife. They’ll go to the cleaners, then into storage at my parents’ house.
