Smoothly sailing into the harbor
So excited! A tour of the island by helicopter!
Marigot Bay, where movie scenes have been filmed over the years.
Our pilot was from Austria and gave us excellent commentary as he expertly flew over banana plantations…….
…rugged mountain rainforests
…And right up and over the Pitons, St. Lucia’s landmark twin peaks.
Petit Piton and Gros Piton (a ½ mile high) are volcanic cones. Close by is Mt. Soufriere, St. Lucia’s steaming volcano.
We flew along the rugged Atlantic coast, where the winds are so strong that nothing has been built there.
Wow! Almost skimming the water!
We saw exclusive resorts and fishing villages and just incredible beauty.
And came back to earth within sight of our beautiful ship.
