Two weeks ago the girls and I went on an excursion in Marigot Bay, Saint Lucia. This adventure included kayaking to a private island, docking our kayaks, then diving in the Eastern Caribbean Sea to snorkel. It was hands down one of the best days of my life. I was in complete awe the whole day.
Something that I have found interesting is every local that I have spoke with so far has an immense appreciation for the Island. Our tour guide for the day was a local Lucian. He was discussing with us how he is constantly seeing the island change because of global warming. This consists of coral bleaching, ocean levels rising, and extensive amounts of sea weed that is collecting on their beaches.
The locals on the island are the backbone of Saint Lucia. They know that if their country is not stable than nothing will work. I can't tell you how many people have been open to helping us or just telling us about the history of their home.
Saint Lucia is truly a wonderful place. I highly recommend this incredible island to anyone who is interested in a remote getaway. And if you do visit, defiantly check out DFH's tours, seriously one of the best days of my life.
