LIFE IS ALL ABOUT HAVING FUN

We took a water taxi to take in the scenery around the south end of the island

It was around 80 degrees in the day and about 75 at night.

From small fishing boats to $50 million dollar yachts, it's all about the sea.

Lillian on her first kayak experience

The sulfur encrusted earth around the mud pit at the volcano was out of this world.

Do we look like tourists or what?

Local say the dark gray pool at the bottom has medicinal qualities and can alleviate arthritic pain to asthmatic conditions. They say it will make you look younger taking off 10 years in appearance.

Bob being Bob

Lillian got to meet Santa

Our Christmas Day Dinner at Gee's Restaurant

Bob got to pracice Archery.

Gisell our archery instructor

Lillian is fiercely competitive. That's Kenise another archery instructor. He and Bob had a a tournament and won best three out of 5. He won the 1st and 2nd rounds, Bob the 3rd and 4th and Kenise barely won the last round. He is very good at archery.

Two days before we end our trip, Lillian twists an ankle stepping into a ditch on the edge of a sidewalk by a local restaurant. Even hurt, she does it in style.

Lillian and the Coconut Man. He would cut open coconuts for us so we could drink the coconut milk and meat inside.

I just had to show you more of the interior of our unit. This is the vanity in our bathroom. Everything was of an extremely high quality. All unts were free standing separate houses.

Our bathtub took me back to an earlier age. Yes, I'm that old.

The Reception contained this rather unique Christmas Tree wrapped in a sheer cloth.

This painting was hanging in our Toilet room above the Bidet.

Lillian at the Bayside Restaurant for lunch. All the resort restaurants served typical local dishes but were a little like too touristy food. To get the real stuff, you have to go to where the locals eat. One such place was J. J.'s Palace, a small road-side reatuarant Francois took us to that had great food. Another grat typical local meal was had on our last day on the sland at the Howenorra Internationl Airport of all places. The airport is a one lane airport by the way. Nevertheless, when we were boarding the aircraft, more than one pwerson offerred to take our bags and even declined to take our tip.

Scenery from the whirpool deck at the Jalousie Plantation's Spa.

This was the first cat to accompany us for breakfast. The last day we had 5 cats and about a dozen birds all around us sharing our breakfast. Lillian loved it.

Every day at breakfast time we had one more cat show up for food.

Don't Worry - Be Happy

Breathtaking views from anywhere on the island. This is truly paradise.

The massage tables even had a mirror so you could see the scenery while you were facing down.

Another great sunset

Just a little past sunset from our rear deck.

We made lots of friends. Even at the airport when we were leaving, we met Nelvin and his wife from New York. We hit it off and joked and laughed away our long wait at the airport.

Castries the capitol.

Lillian and I did not want to miss one bit of sunset, a chance to relax, a moment to reflect, a chance to have fun.
