We’re in St Lucia in between trips, Ged’s busy editing videos (check out the T8 Guadeloupe video here – the T9a vid of our first trip in the Grenadines is also on its way…) and I’ve been doing the usual cleaning and marketing stuff. Felt in need of a break yesterday, so I rented a car and went for a random drive on the island. St Lucia continues to surprise me. The richness and colours of this island get better and more interesting the more time I spend here. Here are some pictures I took in Anse La Raye, a little town on the west coast between Castries and Soufriere.

So as things turned out we had to come back to St Lucia to finish off the teaking of the deck… and so we spent Christmas here, which was a wonderful experience, thanks to the lovely people we were fortunate enough to meet and get to know a little bit better. This post is dedicated to Jo, Ian and Jake – love you guys! We’ll definitely be back.
It so happens that Jake, who’s 7, is a very promising skateboarder. Incidentally, his dad Ian isn’t so bad himself… and he’s in the process of building a skate park for the local kids here on St Lucia. A couple of days ago we took advantage of the nice light at Rodney Bay marina and created a little video of Jake. This is the link for the film on VIMEO – enjoy, and stay tuned for more exploits by young Jake!
We watched Jake skate the paths of Rodney Bay marina from sunup til sundown, reminding us of the ageless passion to play which lives within us all.
The trade winds have kicked in, so yesterday Oli and I took a break from working on the boat and went for a quick session. The wind was gusty as anything and I was way overpowered on my 13… but I had a blast. We were the only kiters there and our audience was a group of tourists on horseback. Lovin’ it…
It looks like we’ll be leaving St Lucia in less than a week. Guadeloupe waves, here we come!
