St. Lucia was our third stop in the southeastern Caribbean. This is the first island stop that is not a United States Territory, and it showed. St. Lucia had the most amazing natural beauty in mountains and trees, and also had the longest, most twisting, hairpin roads we have ever seen. It is windier than the infamous "Road to Hana" in Maui, Hawaii.
Take a spin around the virtual harbour.

Below are many pictures from our harrowing and scenic tour of the island. Our tour included several stops for people selling their crafts (or just reselling the same stuff) along with shirts and beer. They are very aggressive! We passed many of the stops that included people handling snakes!
These are pictures of the world's only drive-in active volcano. Like most volcanoes, it smells sulphury bad.
Below are Joni and Kurtis with the Piton mountains behind, and Soufrière to the left.
Below is a view overlooking where we were going to go snorkeling, but as you can see, it was raining again. Below and to the right is our "don't worry, I'll take good care of you" driver Augustin with Joni.
And two more back on our ship:
