As I was saying in my previous post, we felt asleep before joining St. Lucia.
So in the morning we opened our eyes to this unknown, beautiful bay.
And the very well known Pitons, the two St. Lucia mountains.
After breakfast in this beautiful scenery,
we started the day in our usual way: with a long snorkeling session!
It’s so beautiful. Every day should start this way!
Look at the colorful fishes,
& the squid!
More in the video below.
Back on the boat, we kept exploring around with the drone, to discover our location from above 🙂
And playing in the water… as all grown-ups would do! 😉
In the afternoon, we abandoned the ship to discover the inland.
St. Lucia is a volcanic island and we started our visit with the volcano & the sulphur springs.
It was really impressive to feel the heat and see the boiling water springing from the ground!
We continued with the mud bath.
It’s supposed to be very good for the skin, so why not! 😉
You begin with a bath in a very hot water and then cover yourself in mud.
There’s lighter & darker mud so you can paint nice drawings on your body…
…or less nice, if you’re married to such a funny hubby as mine! ;))
On the route to our next stop, we stopped at this wonderful viewpoint to enjoy the panorama over la Soufrière town and the blue ocean.
Isn’t this water incredible??
We walked through a luxuriant forest,
to some natural, hot springs in the middle of the jungle.
We really enjoyed it. There were three pools, from the hottest one to the cooler one.
All looking at the beautiful nature that surrounded us!
Another beautiful viewpoint on the road,
& the classic tourist pictures 😉
before our last stop, the botanical garden. There was an incredible variety of flowers, but, in my opinion, it was the less interesting visit of the day. That’s probably because I always prefer to observe wild nature instead of “organized” one! 😉
Instead of going back to la Soufrière, our driver took us to Marigot Bay, another corner of the island,
where our catamaran was waiting for us, all dolled up 😉
For once, we stayed in a port at night, so we enjoyed going out to have some drinks & to toast to another beautiful day in the Grenadines! 🙂
