I wanted to post on St. Lucia because I have learned how to insert photos and thought I would show you my picture of Marigot Bay. I had to leave this picture out of my post, “Six month cruise”. So, here it is:
We also sailed up the coast to to visit Piton Bay, also very lovely:
Last night Marie and I learned, via TV, that hurricane Tomas slammed into several Caribbean islands, including St. Lucia. Today, via the Internet, I read: “On St. Lucia, high winds tore off the roofs of a hospital, a school, and a stadium and toppled a large concrete cross from the roof of a century-old church.
Heavy rains caused a landslide that blocked a main highway linking the capital to the island’s southern region.“
I can’t imagine the devastating effect this had on the people of the island!
