Rodney Bay, St. Lucia

After a spanking sail from Martinique, our first stop on St. Lucia was Rodney Bay, the anchorage which Admiral Rodney used to get an upwind advantage to sail down onto the French Fleet and destroy them.

We were greeted by Greg in his wonderful floating shop. He kept us supplied with fresh fruit and vegetables and went out of his way to find (in short supply) the greens that Liz so likes steamed.

Pigeon Island, where Admiral Rodney had his shore based quarters was an interesting walk.

It has abundant Lemon Grass growing on it. We cooked some fish using the Lemon Grass; it tasted fantastic but was a bugger to wash off the dishes!

We found a pleasant little sundowner spot at the base of the island where they had some interesting local art.

  1. Looks like you are still living the dream, so envious. Although we are on the Kennet & Avon canal today in 30 degree heat desperate for a cool breeze. Keep the photos coming!
