If you follow my travels on this blog, you may have noticed a certain tourist attraction from a trip I took to St. Kitts last December: the Carib Fertility Rock of St Kitts, which supposedly bestows children upon those who touch it. In fact it was number 6 on my list of 10 Reasons St Kitts is More Than Just a Cruise Ship Stop.
Now, I’m not a superstitious type, and I don’t actually believe that inanimate objects can be imbued with the power to cause babies, curses or anything else. But I will say this. I touched that dang rock in December, and within 5 months GG and I were expecting our first child. Quite a coincidence!
While I was there, my guide told us about other travel writers who had also found themselves pregnant within a year of touching the rock. Probably just a case of wishful thinking. At any rate, rock or not, I’ve got the fabulous joy of having a child on the way. So this blog may soon need to change tack into “traveling with kids” territory.
So, if you’re trying to have a kid and need an excuse to go down to the Caribbean for a little extra baby mojo, there’s no reason not to go check out St. Kitts. I’d suggest that a long weekend spent sipping umbrella drinks on Reggae Beach by day, and grooving at the Shiggidy Shack by night would probably be even more effective than the rock!
