Cruise Tourists Love Montreal Gardens
Oh’s! and Ah’s!
That was the general reaction of cruise passengers from the M.V. HAL Massdam during a tour of the Montreal Gardens, a 7.5 acres nestled in the mountain range surrounding the Mesopotamia Valley.
The visitors could hardly restrain themselves as they strolled through walkways lined with lilies, rose beds, ferns, hibiscus, bougainvilleas and other flowers, which designer Timothy Vaughn and seven of his workers meticulously maintain.
The Welsh-born landscaper said the network of tropical flora and fauna is set 1500 feet against the backdrop of the 3,000 foot Grand Bonhomme mountains, and makes visitors feel relaxed. He noted that the site is a piece of Vincentian delight and encouraged visitors to always reconnect with nature.
The HAL Maasdam cruise ship passengers who explored the site with tour guides from Coreas Caribbean Adventures (CCA), said they were impressed by the brilliant colours as they listened to the flowing river. It was for them a once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity.
“It’s absolutely beautiful here!” exclaimed one passenger. She continued, “The ride to get here was a bit long, but it was really worth it…the colours seem to pop out at you, and it’s so stunning. I’m glad I visited this island and the gardens, it’s really paradise!”
