St. Lucia Trip!

As usual, I took way to many pictures! Below are a few, but I think I am going to have to make a slide show to do the trip justice. It was BEAUTIFUL! We had a great week!!

Valentine's night. What a romantic scene. I had to take a picture, because I am not sure we could ever top this for Valentines Day!

This is just outside on the patio of our room. It was nice to walk outside and be so close to the beach.

We got to ride a zip line through the rain forest. It was incredible!!

Niel can actually call himself a sailor. We tore up the ocean and didn't even get eaten by sharks!

WARNING! Do not eat the street food unless it is completely fried and fried again. Poor Wayne got so sick.

The actual Black Pearl!. This was the ship they used in Pirates of the Caribbean.

The beauty on the Island was breath-taking!

This was the waterfall they used when filming Romancing the Stone.

The homes the people lived in were not so good. It was interesting to view other's lifestyles and be grateful we live in America.

We are banana experts now. The main source of income on the Island is tourism, but the second is their banana production. Did you know, a banana is first an herb, then a vegetable and finally a fruit. I got to taste a banana while in veggie form and it tasted like a potato. Very interesting!

The view were spectacular. The Island is 25 miles long and 15 miles wide. There were beaches everywhere!

I didn't know you were trippin'! Congratulations! I looks like a wonderful one. It is so special to get away with your hubby and reconnect. Everyone needs to do this. More often than we think we do.
