Please also see Photo Gallery section with pictures and descriptions of St. Lucia for 2003-01-05. On our way to southern Martinique from it's capital Fort de France, we sailed the 40 nautical miles over to St. Lucia, an ex-British colony which is now an independent state. The island seemed poorer than the EU subsidized Island of Martinique, which is part of France. In our 2 day stay the Wildlife crew, consisting of JF, Flo, Dani, Uschi, Andy, Ursula, and Helen, split up to see the Island by foot and taxi. Dani and JF walked through banana plantations, small towns, and bye a local rum distillery in their 5 hour power hike in 40 degrees Celsius heat. We carried a backpack filled with water bottles, of which we drank every last drop. The other group had a wonderful excursion by taxi and guide along some of the Island's north western shore line, including a visit to the 2 Pitons, St. Lucia's signature volcanic rock extrusions. Till another day, St. Lucia, and thank you for your hospitality!
