Saint Lucia

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: Marigot Bay

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!

George and his wife, Marie, sailed professionally, chartering boats in the Bahamas, then in the Virgin Islands. They then leased an uninhabited island, Little Thatch, in the British Virgin Islands, and turned it into a small hotel. After six years, they left the island and bought a lovely beachfront property on Jost Van Dyke (BVI) where they built Sandcastle Hotel and the original Soggy Dollar Bar. George is now the author of Incredible Virgin Island Adventure: A True Story.
