St. Lucia was beautiful and very natural. It is one of the largest banana growers in the world. Our 4X4 Jeep took us through banana fields and the jungle for 4 hour tour. Along the way the stopped at a few roadside stands along the road. I had fresh coconut milk right from a coconut that an islander used a machete to open and bananas at another.
An interesting stop was a small seaside village that was lined with market stalls. As I mentioned earlier, Brett hates these markets. I negotiated a few deals and bought a t-shirt and a leather shot glass for Brett. We ended the tour with a hike to a jungle waterfall. It was sort of a disappointment; especially after our hike to the beautiful jungle waterfall in Puerto Rico. This one was man-made and not very scenic. It was still fun. Chalk up another wonderful day in paradise. We have no idea what the weather is like back home in Ohio.
