Some early morning harbor views. St. Lucia is one of my favorite ports to visit. The beautiful harbor is truly so picturesque.
The Gardener and I, along with our friend Jan, hired a private boat driver to take us to a resort where we spent the most fabulous day. Jan's husband, Bob went on a diving expedition that day.
look at that gorgeous blue water!
2000 people on our cruise ship~
we were the only ones from our ship here on this beach.
You can see the bungalows up on top along the edge of the cliffs.
what a view- huh?
He went right out in the water and brought these in to polish and sell.
His favorite thing?
the "orange life preserver" that I got him for the camera!!
I took this photo while standing out in the water
There are 110 steps that lead from the beach up to the top of the cliffs where the resort is located.
(OK - if you are going to be whiny about it - you can call for the shuttle)
I have a thing for stairs - seriously - I love to climb stairs - so off I went - had to see what was at the top~~
Here is a view looking down at the beach from the first landing~
and from a little further up~~ I am at tree top level here~~
Did you like the tour? I wanted to stay there longer than our time allowed!
Sadly, our day had to come to an end. Here is a view of the resort as we are leaving - headed back to our ship.
We sailed out of the beautiful port of St. Lucia just as the evening sun was beginning to set. The good thing about a cruise is that you get to visit so many wonderful places. The bad thing is that you never get to stay as long as you want. I could have stayed on that beautiful beach until the sun was set below the horizon~~
Up next - some photos of our wonderful day spent in Barbados. I will treat you to some of the Gardener's underwater photography - (we went swimming with sea turtles!)
