St Lucia, West Indies, Caribbean 1/4-2016
From a beautiful white covered Mont Royal, it is time for us to head south to the warmer latitudes of the Caribbean Sea.
However, still in Canada, the snow fall soon develops into ice storm, and we get stuck in Toronto, where no planes can departure due to the frozen rain.
Many hours later, we are still patiently waiting in the aircraft which hopefully will bring us to the Caribbean. And so it does, finally we are on our way to St Lucia with flying speed!! :-)
.St Lucia is an island country in the West Indies, located midway down the Eastern Caribbean chain, between Martinique and St. Vincent, and north of Barbados.
Below some pics from our first days spent here... :-)
.Hiking our way to Cas en Bas, on the north-east coast, where our aim is to kitesurf when conditions allows. During our "explore-walk" we find many natural treasures in all kind of shapes and colours.
.But also, like most places around the world, the evidence of the human mass consumption of plastic, follows us everywhere. A consumption that causes so much damage and suffering when it ends up in nature...
.After many, many months spent in cold latitudes... Guess who is eager to jump into the 28°C warm water! ;-)
.As much as I love to spend time in both cold and icy waters, it feels wonderful to freely be playing in a warm ocean surrounding again!
More from our stay in St Lucia in the next blogpost :-)
