Islanding on St. Lucia

April 07, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

My family and I recently took a trip to St. Lucia to celebrate my youngest brother going to college in the fall. What a wild trip it was. I have to admit that the beaches aren't as big and sandy as they are in North Carolina, but the island was still beautiful in many ways. We stayed in a house on the side of a hill for the week, so our view of Marigot Bay was a beautiful reminder that we were far from the rain and cool weather in NC. It was also a reminder that I needed to put down my Piton and pick up my camera!

I loved the mountains and hills that sat right next to the ocean. We don't have that in NC. They provided me with some nice subjects, backgrounds and height to get different shots. 

The plants on the island absolutely blew me away. Those who know me well know I'm a weird plant guy. I have a sizable house plant collection that always seems to be growing due to me propagating a new plant from a piece that fell off or a piece I cut off to keep my existing plants looking nice. Several images are specifically of plants but also take notice of the trees and foliage in the other images as well. Palm trees, banana trees, orange trees. . . I was so excited to have all these tropical plants around me.

The pictures below are among my favorites I took during our stay. Looking at them only makes me wish this cold Spring weather would pass as quickly as possible!

Thanks for looking,

JD
