the iconic Petit Piton viewed from Hummingbird resort in Soufrière
After our  Grenadines catamaran cruise(some of us,fans of Maldives were a lil disappointed!) and a week in the pleasant Antigua,we have flown the unreliable Liat airline(Leave Island Any Time) to St Lucia.The direct flight was on time but Danielle's suitcase not!As I knew by Catherine that the taxis are expensive there and as I didn't want to get stuck in Soufrière for 5 days,I rent a car thanks to one helpful Liat staff( I have asked her to bargain for us with the different airport car rental offices!).
We based ourselves in Soufrière,the Lucian former capital because it was found in 1746 by clever French people who settled right in the middle of a volcano!More seriously I didn't want to stay in the too "westernized" Rodney or Marigot bays though Danielle would have preferred a more comfy and hype place!
Unfortunately along these five days we got a cloudy sometimes rainy weather.Nevertheless we had a try at enjoying the close beach Anse Chastanet,two former plantations,the commonplace Soufrière sulphur springs,the fade Vieux Fort town...and a glance at Rodney bay for shopping,Marigot bay and the congested capital Castries where we had a decent and very cheap meal at the supermarket close to the market carpark!
