As we traveled up the hilly and twisty roads of Castries, St Lucia some people seem to turn a light shade of green. However they all found it worthwhile as we entered the canopy of the rain forest. Here we hopped on the Aerial tram which took us to the the top of the rain forest where we enjoyed incredible views 1500 ft above the sea. Waterfalls and streams contrasted all the gorgeous greenery. It was very quiet and peaceful except for the occasional screams from zip liners we encountered along the way.
The next day we found ourselves on the extraordinary island of Barbados. Here we took a Cool Runnings catamaran which sailed to a reef where we swam with sea turtles. What fun to be so close to these amazing creatures and the colorful reef fish. We partied with the boat crew and friendly passengers from Barbados, New Zealand, England, Canada and many areas of the U.S. We had an authentic (and quite tasty!) Caribbean lunch, floated in the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean, and danced on our way back to port.
