    Snorkelling in St Lucia on Christmas Day

    December 25, 2017 in Saint Lucia ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    We left the boat early for a Christmas bimble aroind St Lucia...and got hassled continually for our trouble! Apparently walking is not the done thing and we should definitely take a taxi...We wrestled our way through to a predictably quiet, but nonetheless lacklustre town centre.

    After an hour back on the boat, we met our excursion on the quayside - a few hours swimming and snorkelling at Pigeon Island. The thirteen of us shared a whole catamaran up the St. Lucia coast, and Ben and I enjoyed laying on the netting over the front and falling the swell of the tide.

    Back in port, the 3 for $5 local beers made for a useful WiFi stop (and some video calling home for Christmas day!!) before boarding the cruise shop again. We did have a formal Christmas dinner sitting but that was at 8.30pm, so instead we had a Christmas dinner at the buffet before trying our hand once again at trivia...a hearty 13/15 today but beaten by the team of seven who got full marks 😕
