And another reason to explore, check out this AMAZING street art I snapped on our Pink Panther Tour of St Lucia. This takes some talent! In fact all swanky hotels should have a street art wall, just putting that out there ! Because there is nothing better than seeing local inspiration talent. Another reason to visit @stjamesclubslu @eliteisland and another reason to go back 💗
The beauty of having family and friend links with another country is that you get to see places that are off the beaten track - places where tourists don’t often go. Not one to stay on a resort anyway, I’m the sort of traveller that loves to see how the locals live. .
My mums neighbour and friend of over 45 years used to live in London but moved back to her home country of St Lucia around 20 years ago. Her house now sits yards away from the beach. Maybe not great when a hurricane strikes but the calm seas and slightly grey skies welcomed us that day. I’d describe the village of Laborie (situated in the south of the island) as quite quaint. But not in the English countryside type of way. More in an authentic Caribbean kinda way: fishing boats, old-fashioned plywood houses standing next to their modern cousins, friendly locals and a pier stretching out from the sandy beach. More photos of the beautiful town to follow. .
Ah take me back to the Caribbean Beach 🏖 💕 This gorgeous pier is the most wonderful seafood restaurant at night it is all lit up against the sea serving the most delicious food. One night we shared wedding cake as dessert with a couple who had visited St Lucia to get married it was such a wonderful thing to be part of. 💕
I just adore this picture and am trying take as many photos while Joe will still let me🤣. .Jack is so hard to get a photo of now ! I am sharing our first post of our amazing holiday @stjamesclubslu @eliteisland I wish we were back there now💕 I said a week is enough and whilst it’s easy to do, longer is always better when you are all chilled and happy 💗
I am sat at my desk, the raining is pouring and I am so missing this place. On the bright side the holiday washing is nearly done 😬 I am thinking I might make myself a mango daiquiri tonight to chase away those holiday blues 💕 And I am loving scrolling though my holiday feed 😍💕 That is what holidays are all about, family memories 😍
And today we leave @stjamesclubslu @eliteisland after the most wonderful week. We have explored the 🌴 Island, chilled by the pool, done early morning classes tried paddle boarding and fit float! sipped delicious cocktails 🍹 ate great food and last nights beach party was so much fun. Joe has had the best time hanging out and playing volley ball with all his new friends whilst Jack has chilled and worked on his tan 🤣 if you are thinking of visiting St Lucia then this is the perfect little corner of paradise the staff are warm and friendly and the sun is hot. I am going to miss it so much. Thanks guys for a wonderful trip xx
And today is a day of water sports. I started off with a early morning fit float class. Boy that was tough but amazing, then a beginners water ski lesson. Let’s just not mention that 🤣it seems Jack is the only Christie with ski legs. Next up the boys are booked on the banana boat. I love that all water sports are all included💗this place is a families dream there is soooo much to do.
Good morning from St Lucia, we arrived @stjamesclubslu last night and wow what a welcome we have yet to explore the resort fully but our room is spectacular (if you fancy a nosey check out my stories) and the resort from what we have seen so far oozes with Caribbean charm. I know we are going to love it here. This photo was taken yesterday on our journey across the island through the rainforest. We stopped off at Dennery Lookout over the Atlantic side of the Island and wow what a view 💗
We are at the end of our trip and it has been a wonderful time filled with lots of happy memories that we will cherish. Big thanks go to Liam’s Uncle Barry who owns a place out here and to his generosity in allowing us to stay there. It really was lovely and the staff @thelandingsstlucia have been amazing and very kind 💕 Our photo of the trip is this one. It was one of the times a tour guide from the sailing trip offered to take a photo of us in front of the Pitons. Whilst handing over my camera the lens got smeared and then after a couple of shots he asked us to kiss in front of a boat filled with people - people which had already been politely asked to move out of the way for said photo shoot. We both got all awkwardly British about it and then afterwards was the even more awkward realisation “oh the photo is blurry!” but we were reluctant to ask for another one for fear of continuous humiliation (more staged kisses) but we actually love it this way anyway! Thank you St Lucia. #britishproblems#typicallybritish#stlucia#lovestlucia#pitons#pitonsstlucia#travelphotography#photography#blackandwhite
Spending our 10 year anniversary in St. Lucia was the absolute best! From Hot Sulphur Springs, waterfalls, volcanos, Piton Mountains, Pigeon Island, beautiful sunsets over the ocean, and zip lining in the rainforest. I couldn’t ask for anything better. #amazingtrip 😍 #lovestlucia
