Saint Lucia Blog 24th January 2020
Another day, another island. An early arrival with two other cruise ships in port as well.
We berthed in the older part with great views across the harbour.
Again running the gauntlet of taxi drivers touting for trade and there are a lot of them it was outside to have a look round.
Tourism now outstrips Agriculture as the main source of income and with three ships in the battle for trade is endless.
The road infrastructure around the port is okay for cars but underfoot with all the stalls spilling onto the road was a bit hazardous and it wasn’t much better the further you got away from the terminal.
There was a small garden (George V) which seemed to be dedicated to Saint Lucians that helped in the war effort, it was French then so it seemed that de Gaulle was mentioned in the citation on the monument.
The cross of Lorraine was chosen as the symbol against the Nazis and is represented with the victory ‘V’ sign within the garden.
Well we have a day at sea tomorrow to celebrate ‘Burns Night’ before resuming our island hopping with Antigua, Tortola. St Kitts and St Maarteen on the agenda.
