The blue bags protect the young bananas from insects and small animals.
We roamed from the top of mountains to the beautiful beaches and even got to take a boat ride to the Pinions. We had a lovely breakfast stop before heading to the top of the mountains with local fruits and typical breads and snacks. It was all yummy. My favorite was the passion fruit and E's was the breadfruit!
I think St. Lucia was one of E's favorite islands. When we got on the small boats that would take up to the beach between the Pinons, the crew was right there to help him on and off the boat. On the trip back to the vans, the crew even ran the boat up onto the beach to make it easier for E to get off. These people were simply AMAZING. When we tried to tip them, we were repeatedly told, "This is our job". We tipped anyway.
And the gorgeous Pinons
We spent a couple of hours here on the beach just loafing around. I did find two tropical printed shirts for the twins for their sister's 4th. b'day party (a Luau themed one) and we sampled a 'couple' more of the local brews.
Wet and happy, we had one more stop before heading back to the area for shopping and then back to our ship. We stopped at the same place we had the wonderful island breakfast and we given home baked crusty and tasty hunks of bread and some local cheeses. Wow.
and two more islands to go!
