Here is another adventure shared by Angela Foote:
When the pods bear, it takes 9 months to maturity and has to be wrapped individually in a “blanket” and placed in the sun each day and “wrapped” again at night.
This farm used to produce one million pods at one time but Hurricane Ivan damaged 10 acres of the property and export has cut down drastically. They used to export to USA.
We left there and went to eat at the new seafood restaurant called LiKKLE Portie in Portland. They do rafting on Daniel River. You can also swim in the sea nearby. There are lots of hammocks to relax under the cool palm trees. Somerset Falls is across the road and the tractor man brings patrons from the falls to eat at Likkle Portie.
It was then to Annotto Bay to the oldest Anglican church (St.James), built in 1910, and you can see the tunnel where the train used to pass under. The organ is no longer in use.
Then the oldest market: Metcalfe Market built in the 1800s as well and named after the then Governor, Sir Charles Metcalfe.
