Intro

I’m so excited to finally share with all of you some images and stories from our time in St. Lucia. We spent seven sun-drenched days on the island eating our way up and down the coast. I came home with bright red skin and a desire to have more coconut, fish, and rum punch in my life. Also, sun. I dream of that sun.

For now I have a few images to show you (there are more, hundreds more). If you head over to the Seafood Spot you can read about some of our meals and adventures on the island. There will be much more to come.

It didn’t take long for us to learn that water taxi was our preferred method of travel. Given the option of hot taxi speeding through narrow and often barely-paved roads or brightly colored boat gliding through the turquoise Caribbean sea I will always choose the sea.

The waters surrounding the island are teeming with sea life. We tried our hand at fishing (deep-sea) with no luck but the many fisherman we ran into had boats filled with fresh fish. They must not have been sharing all their secrets.

This is an image I return to when the rain pelts our windows at home and the gray days seem never-ending.

      Ana – It’s beautiful. I learned so much about traveling in St. Lucia while there – things I wish I would have known prior to traveling. Please feel free to contact me through the site if you want to talk about it some more.

    Amazing photos! I’m sitting here in the Pacific Northwest, looking out my window and another gray rainy day. Now I’m fantasizing about St Lucia! I can’t wait to read more about it.

    I LOVE St. Lucia! Chris and I went there on our honeymoon. It was spectacular and so beautiful. We too ate and drank our way through that trip. Your photos made me miss it, I really hope to get back there someday soon!

    Love those photos especially the fish ones! The Sea Cuisine site was worth looking over and enjoyed your article on their site as well. Thanks.

    Oh man I want to go too! I have a friend who just moved there in December and has been homesick but sharing her journey on a blog. I looks so beautiful. I love you photographs of it, the boat one is great as is the yellow fish.

    those images of yours warm my heart! I love the colours of the fishes ()sometimes I feel bad to eat them)…and how I love the Caribbean too:-) just back from the paradise les Saintes (between Dominica and Guadeloupe) 10 days ago….

    Wow, Ashley! Beautiful photography! Your reccomendations for our trip were spot on! We had a great time. I think Boucan at Hotel Chocolat was definitely a highlight meal of the trip :) We loved exploring the island – by land & sea. A magical place indeed!
