Hi everyone,
Have not had internet for quite awhile as I moved out of the marina, I am now anchored outside the lagoon by Pidgeon Island, its about 2 miles away from Rodney Bay and takes 3/4 hr to come ashore there, so sorry I havn't posted for ages. Next plan is a visit to Marin in Martinique and I may even leave today if all goes well. Have enjoyed my stay here, it is a beautiful island and the people are very friendly, so much so, that the social events seem to keep you here as there is always something more to see or do.
I hope to return to St Lucia on about the 18-19 Feb to take part in the round the Island Rally on the 20th, its 2 days with an overnight stop in Vieux Fort, this could be good fun!
Pictures 1 is all those who took part in the farewell flotilla, and GL in Castries sailing around the harbour.
More about the next plan next post.

January 2010

Hi everyone,
Some more views of the Island after a little tour I did with some friends from the Netherlands, we were with Malaki, he took us to the not so well visited places so we could see the real St Lucia, swiming in a river and seeing the small fishing villages, took us all day and included a swim in a hot mineral waterfall and a visit to the volcano crater which bubbles and steams away, bit smelly as sulfurous. pic 1 fishing village pic 2 swimming hole pic 3 rain forest pic 4 boiling sulfur mud pic 5 the famous Pitons with the town at there base Soufriere.
In the process of planning the next route and will post info later. Hope all had a good time over Xmas and New Year.
