Getting to know St Lucia

14 December 2017 | Rodney Bay St Lucia
We are struggling a bit to remember what we did yesterday - not due to rum - just due to it being a bit of a quiet, hot day. But life is returning to the tired bones of the crew and we are getting our heads up for a look around now.

The ladies returned very relaxed from their spa treatments and all the more gorgeous - as if that could be possible.

We were just settling down to dinner when friends Tina and Richard on S/Y Just Joia came over and invited us to Film Night aboard. They have a great set-up in their cockpit for watching movies on the navigation plotter. It was really surreal, sitting in the marina watching James Bond / Octopussy - very good fun.

Today we went on an orientation tour of the north end of St Lucia, with a great local guide who provided rum punch just before 10am. Tonight we are off to a fish-fry by boat.

We look as though we may have decided on our next steps: it's looking like a sail down south to the Grenadines for Christmas. More to follow.

A picture today from our orientation - St Lucia is looking good.
