On March 9th my uncle ,his wife, daughter- in law, three grandchildren and I went to visit our uncle who will be returning to his other home in Spring Texas USA on March 12th 2013. Uncle Noel Chandler is my grandmother’s brother on my mum’s side of the family. He is originally a Trinidadian but has migrated many years ago to reside in the US. He visits his homeland very often, sometimes with his wife or child/children.


My uncle's Trinidad home is in Petit Valley which is very mountainous, has springs a quiet atmosphere and rains often. The house is situated on a hill it’s a big upstairs and downstairs, there’s a magnificent view from on the hillside .Anyhow my great uncle and wife were delighted to see us to catch up on old times.


My great cousins had fun playing in the verandah and enjoying the Mountain View, we had a few things to eat and chatted while I took pictures of the wonderful scenery that surrounded us and then it was time to go before we left we had a word of prayer. The time was well spent short and sweet I was glad to see my great uncle and aunty once more.


I will now share with you some pictures of my visit.

      Hi, saw this hours ago and tried to get here but had trouble and it said Hp was shut down for repairs so just got back.

      Beautiful home your uncle has and some cute kids! Great pictures. How are you? You must be feeling some better? Hope so. After you get well use those teas I told you about though. I never have any problems, not even a pain in the side, which I use to get often. Scary stuff.

      Up and sharing.
