Looking like pretty little English Coastal beach huts but these are actually eateries in Castries Town which is the capital of St Lucia. You can buy everything you need from the town. They have an amazing fruit and veg market as well as souvenirs galore for the tourists. The cruise ships dock here so you’d think that it was a good place to have a stall. Whilst it is busy, the vendors are constantly vying for your attention. A little off putting but hey - they have to earn a living. The local northerners tend not to visit the town as much as they used to as they can now get most of what they want in Rodney Bay/Gros Islet. ——————————————-

This Girl. Every time my camera points her way, she strikes a pose. Looking like a cover girl. Beautiful inside and out. ——————————————

A lot of our time was spent in Rodney Bay and the beach there is called Reduit Beach. It has gorgeous sand, water sporting facilities and...this guy on his boat. They call him the Fruit Boat Man as he sells fresh fruit and moves from beach to beach selling his colourful wares. ———————————————

St Lucia is hilly. I mean like, really hilly. Like calf-burning hilly. Like, get-those-glutes-working kinda hilly. You only need to take a look at the stacked layering of houses which illustrates this (see previous post). One thing that I forgot to take photos of were the almost vertical roads - some of which had around a 75 degree incline. Honest. Generally speaking though I was normally in a car when I went up them so at least I didn’t have to walk up them. And no, I wasn’t driving as I couldn’t drive here. There’s too many inconsiderate drivers on the road - overtaking on blind bends and craziness like that. Can you believe that we passed three road accidents in the 90 minutes that it took to get from the airport to the villa? The cliff edges are exhilarating and scary at the same time but the beauty is that you can see for miles around.

Back at the picture postcard town of #Laborie. 
We were at the end of the pier when I felt the first drops of rain. Hubby said that there was no point in running as the house was too far away. Little did he know that I I had already spotted my shelter before I even walked out onto the pier. As soon as those drops came down I held the camera tight and picked my feet up. This rain is not to be messed with - I was heading for the petrol station. Granted it doesn’t rain for long periods of time but when it rains, it pours. I reach my shelter and watch as hubby and my cousin started running at full speed. Yep, they got soaked. 😂

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. .

These photos were taken within half an hour of each other. Notice the difference in the weather. It’s rainy season in The Caribbean at the moment so the weather was changeable. I’m not complaining though. The island needs plenty of water to keep it so lush. .
The second and third photos are taken from #nikkisbar. It’s a great place to stop for drinks on the airport route whilst looking down at the fishing village of #Dennery

I have had The Most amazing time in #stlucia this past two weeks. I was there for a family reunion. Not sure how many of us were there but I’d say over 150. Lots of the family still live in St Lucia but others travelled from the UK, The States and France. .
This is the view from our villa in #RodneyBay called La Kai Nous - a beautiful two bedroom house which backs onto the marina. It’s gorgeously decorated, comfortable and is absolutely perfect for a family of four. In a centralised location, I’d definitely recommend this place again and again. We booked @lakainous on the @homeaway website.  Wish I was still there! .

I can’t for the life of me remember where I took this #strideby pic. I think it was near #regentstreet. Anyone recognise it? .

Was at this place on the weekend. Made me wanna do a bit of running! Lee Valley Athletics Centre is such a great place for the kids to be and they do summer camps as well. And whilst the kids are doing their stuff you can sometimes take in a class yourself. #winwin ——————————————-

One of these days I’m gonna get my bike and take a ride along this canal. One of these days...
Been a little quiet on here of late as been busy, busy. Shopping. Completing projects and the like. I’ve got a couple of projects on the go at the moment which I’m hoping to have finished by the end of next week. And then I’m taking a much needed break. Big smiles all round. ——————————————
