The flower market is right in front of this beautiful church.The inside of the church was a big surprise: a metal framework in the style of the Eiffel Tower. After one of the many earthquakes (Guadeloupe has an active volcano), the church was rebuilt to withstand some shaking.

In Pointe-a-Pitre, we were the only cruise ship. Young people in yellow polo shirts helped us in the city and bade farewell on the pier.

Point-a-Pitre was the only harbor where we were greeted by a welcome committee.

Anse-la-Raye is a small fishing village with traffic jams. The bus dragged us across the island to Anse-La-Raye. Every bus on the entire island took tourists exactly here.
A beautiful church for a small place.
At least three fishermen are busy at their job.
The waterfront will be elegant one day.
Somehow, the St. Lucian government has convinced Japan to build this spiffy waterfront.

St. Lucia has many cute homes and many more shacks where we would only store garden tools, but here people live in them."Downtown" Anse-La-Raye

Castries is the capital of St. Lucia. Destroyed by hurricanes and fire, it was rebuilt in an ugly after WW2 style. This is the fishing harbor right next to the cruise ship docks. Waterfront

St. Lucia (2)
The Sandals Resort used to be a hotel. We stayed there about 18 years ago. St. Lucia is a lush island.

A Celebrity ship pulls into Castries harbor.
Ship and plane at the same time. The red roof is part of the shopping center where salesgirls chat on their cell when customers are in the store. We still managed to buy rum, rum punch, a cloth backpack, banana kerchup and banana essence. However, we could not pay with our Eastern Caribbean dollars because they had changed the pictures on the paper money.
