Friday 1st February - Castries, St Lucia
Every morning, we wake up in a new town or city, with new things to see. It all starts getting a bit of a blur, and I say to Peter, “Where we were yesterday?” He can’t remember either.
We found out that a taxi to the pitons would cost anything between 100 and 160 dollars, more than we had on us, and not only that, we discovered as soon as we got off the ship, we wouldn’t have time. It turned out that a couple of escorts where needed on the “Dolphin and Whale Safari”, and we just happened to walk past the excursions manager at the right time. As I said yesterday, how lucky are we?
Once again, the sky was blue, the sun hot, and the rum punch flowed freely. (And it was really nice punch too), one or two of our passengers may have ended up just a little bit squiffy. Sadly though, those amazing whales and dolphins played hide in our game of hide and seek, and we never got to see them. (Awwwwwwwwww), but we were taken to see the exclusive Marigot Bay, where people such as Oprah Winfrey have owned homes, and we did have an absolutely excellent time on the boat trip. How can you not? The scenery was awesome, the sky blue, and the passengers were really good company.
I have to admit, we were absolutely shattered by the end of the day, and fast asleep by 9.30.
