S: Honeymoon 2010
FC: St. Lucia, W.I.
1: Our Honeymoon No Pressure-No Problem
2: Day 1 Touchdown: We arrived to champagne, finger foods, and an upgrade from a room with an ocean view to beachfront!! We checked out our digs, put on something more island appropriate and headed to the Cricketers Pub for some grub. After quelling our first (and only) hunger pangs we washed our food down with umbrella drinks by the pool. | Fun fact: St. Lucia is 27 miles long (north to south) by 14 miles wide (east to west). Total area size is 616sq km
4: Day 2 Culture: We enjoyed the sights & sounds of St. Lucia on a picturesque bus tour though Castries, The Morne, Banana Plantations, Fishing Villages, Marigot Bay Lookout, Anse La Raye and finally into Soufriere.
7: In Soufriere we visited the Sulphur Springs, (Drive-in Volcano) town and also visited the stunning Diamond Waterfall after a walk through the fragrant tropical Botanical Gardens. Then we enjoyed some sumptuous cuisine at a local restaurant and set sail on the catamaran. We cruised down to Anse La Raye beach where we anchored for some relaxation, boat drinks, and snorkeling. We made one last stop at the scenic Marigot Bay
11: The Pitons are two volcanic plugs in a World Heritage Site in Saint Lucia. The Gros Piton is 771 m, and the Petit Piton is 743 m high; they are linked by the Piton Mitan ridge.. Saint Lucia's local brand of beer is named after these two mountains.
13: "Seeing is deceiving. It's eating that's believing." - James Thurber And after 9 restaurants, WE BELIEVE!
14: What’s a honeymoon without breakfast in bed? What a nice surprise courtesy of the lovely people at Sandals!
15: A day at Sandals Halcyon
17: Another day of snorkeling at Anse Le Raye
18: Fun Fact: St. Lucia's National Tree is the Calabash Tree. It does not bear fruit but is used to make pottery and jewelry
22: DAY 5 Gotta get some dancing in!! The most memorable moment (other than the folks dancing on the bar) is our DJ (DJ Ronnie) kept yelling out "Gucci"! LMBO!!!
23: Day 6 Show me the money: Put your game face on folks, it’s time to haggle with the locals. Spent the day shopping in Castries and at Point Seraphine.
24: Our last night we had dinner at the most popular restaurant of all 3 of the resorts: Kimonos. We crossed the threshold of this dramatic, Japanese-inspired building and entered an environment that melds the very best of the orient with the gorgeous island ambiance of St. Lucia. Tucked into the side of a sheer cliff, this two-story restaurant offered magnificent views of the spot-lit ocean through walls of wood-encased square-pained glass, the perfect accompaniment to sizzling teppanyaki dishes, whipped up with flair, fanfare and laughter by our knife-wielding chef...YEAH!
29: St. Lucia: Simply Beautiful!
