St. Lucia

St. Lucia is another island in the Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles. The ship docked at the capital, Castries. The volcanic mountains called the Pitons are a UN World Heritage Site, and we wanted to see them. We hired a car and driver and set off on a sometimes rainy day. It was still 81 degrees and sunny at noon.
Good morning rainy Castries.
