We are having a great time, with so much to see and do. We are visiting my cousin here in St. Lucia at her beautiful home in a very scenic part of the island. Here are some photos of the sites Carolyn and I are seeing on the island.
The Pitons, for what St. Lucia is known.
Hummingbird in my cousin’s garden.
My cousin’s boat, Captain and First mate. Carolyn is in the front of the boat on the right! I am on the dock shooting photos and they were coming back to pick me up to go whale hunting and later, snorkeling in the Caribbean.
My cousin’s pool at her home.
A horse on the beach. Horses on the island are not very well kept. Usually you see them tied beside a road with no water and only the grass they can reach from a short tether. They are left tied out in rain and wind too.
Sunset taken from the pool at the house.
A sheep tethered in a field. They treat all animals in the same way. The locals do not often own property and tie the animals to graze wherever they can.
The bird feeder in the back garden. The grackles are eating cat food. Mockingbirds also come for the cat food.
Soufrière, Saint Lucia with a view of the Pitons.
My cousin riding her thoroughbred, with a view of her home up on the bluff.
Sugar Beach, a five-star Viceroy Resort. It was formally the Jalousie Plantation. We were here on these lounges two days. You put up a red flag and the attendants come to bring you whatever you wish. Now that I could get used to.
My first day snorkeling at the location above. The fish came right up to me.
