19 January 2010 | Vieux Fort, St Lucia
The guide book says "Tired of the sharing the Caribbean with too may other visitors? Vieux Fort is great: it does not have a tourist bone in it's body" And their right. Out of the way on the southeast coast of St Lucia ,off the beaten path, a large deserted beach and only two other boats. No rolling, no rocking, a nice breeze, a pineapple rum cooler (no ice though) a hot shower. It was worth the 35 miles, th last 12 miles of which was a wild windward beat, to get here. Only one thing missing...... but she will be here in 4 days.
So far I think St Lucia is one of the most picturesque islands I've seen so far.
Tomorrow I will head south and down the windward side of St Vincent and 50 miles later, I should be in Bequia.
