St. Lucia First Half

Today was my first day back to work and boy was it depressing.  I just kept daydreaming about our trip....


We arrived on Saturday night to our villa!
We stayed in the one all the way on the right on the top floor. There were only 30 villas all together, and we loved that it wasn't overcrowded and cramped like a lot of the all inclusive resorts nearby.
This was the view from our villa. Gorgeous!

The first day we got there we were so tired because we were up at 2:45 that morning to catch our flight. We went to bed at 8pm and slept until 6am.  Since we were up so early, we decided to take advantage and explore the island.  We had a jeep rental included in our package, so the only thing left to do was let Matt try and drive on the wrong side of the road.  He actually did a great job though.

We headed up to Smuggler's Cove for some early morning snorkeling.


Since it was so early, there was nobody there with us, which was really nice. We went in the water for a bit, but there wasn't as much to explore as we thought there would be, so we headed to our next desination, Pigeon Island.
Pigeon Island from afar. They have WW2 ruins on the island, and pretty good hike to the top and gorgeous beaches at the bottom.

Once we finished our hike, we moved to the beach.


 

My favorite part of the day was when this guy came up to us:
This little boat was "the fruit boat."  Basically a man that boats around to all the different beaches and sells fresh fruit. Yes please.  We got 2 mangos, 2 bananas and 2 cocunt water drinks.

BTW I wear a hat all the time on the beach b/c I'm pale as all get out and don't want to get skin cancer on my face.  Gotta love being Irish.

The next day we scheduled our zip lining tour that came with our "adventure package."  I've been so excited for this since we booked our trip!  And it did not dissapoint.
looking pretty sexy haha

ready to go!


We both had so much fun and would do it again if we had the chance. 

On our way home from zip lining we stopped at a few lookout points with our tour guide to take pictures. 

More trip to come tomorrow....
