The beach was a bit crowded for a weekday I thought, then I remembered it was Valentine's Day, as I noticed some amorous couples in the sea. swaying in rhythm to the waves, holding tight to each other.
I wonder how many skipped work today?
Ras Andy came by with his roots and herbal concoctions.
At 71 years old, Ras Andy born Devon Anderson, walks the beaches, stage shows, festivals and events, selling his potions and herbs for cleansing and energizing the body. He tells me that Moringa powder is a big seller as it helps to rid the body of toxins that cause cancer.
For this Valentine Day, he was offering Sex Marathon.
There are raw peanuts floating in the Sex Marathon.
To complement your marathon, you will need Iron Pipe.
There are no sugars or alcohol in these organic herbs he explains, and some are made and buried for months o become more potent. His knowledge of herbs he learned from his father in Grange Hill, Westmoreland as a child, and for the past 46 years become more steeped in the preparation but only began to sell to the public in 2002.
Moringa leaves for tea or salads are available in small bags, also seeds that he tells me you may eat raw, one a day for health. For a cleanse, he suggests 3 moringa seeds for a twenty four hour laxative effect.
