Scenic Sunday # 28

The Twin Pitons, St. Lucia.  September 13, 2001.

The Twin Pitons, St. Lucia. September 13, 2001.

The picture above (which can be enlarged by clicking on it) was taken from the deck of a catamaran off the coast of the Caribbean island of St. Lucia.  The twin peaks shown are The Pitons (Les Pitons), St. Lucia’s most famous landmark.  The Pitons top 2,000 feet in height and flank the entrance to the town of Soufriere on the west coast of the island.

Our cruise ship had docked in the capital of St. Lucia, Castries, early in the morning and Betsy and I took a catamaran along the coast to Soufriere.  This picture was taken as the catamaran approached The Pitons.  After docking in the town we were taken to The Sulphur Springs, the world’s only drive-in volcano, and to a working plantation.  We then took the catamaran back to the cruise ship.

St. Lucia is a beautiful island and if you get the chance to visit I encourage you to do so.

    Rather uniquely defining points to the mountain tops. What a beautiful setting this must have been. My setting for scenic sunday is in a snowy meadow.

    Hi George,
    Yes our seasons are very changeable! We have a saying here, if you don’t like the weather, stick around it’ll change! Your story and photo of St. Lucia are beautiful! And I love your Day Lily! It’s so pretty, I have day lilies in my garden. Now I’ll have to see if I can find some like yours! Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!!

    Beautiful picture. I wouldn’t mind doing another cruise.
    My husband not so much.

    BTW- I loved your comment on my weird friday post. ha!!

  20. Carletta Says:

    Sounds like you had a great trip George. A drive-in volcano? I had to google that – sounds interesting.
    We actually have a White Sulphur Springs here in WV- home of the famed Greenbrier Hotel. 🙂

    Your photo is gorgeous!

  21. Tammie Says:

    Oh I love that image with the strongly peaked mountains and wonderful clouds.

  22. Ms Hays Says:

    Yowsa! The Caribbean!!! I’m planning a trip there next spring & I CAN”T WAIT!!! Beautiful picture too

  23. Tabib Says:

    Beautiful twins peaks and scenery.

  24. Brit' Gal' Sarah Says:

    My aunt & uncle own a Catamaran they charter in St Lucia, but sadly I never made it out there and probably never will now. My mum has been and loved it, although she found the humidity a problem. My problem would be my chronic seasickness!

  25. Tootie Says:

    George, you and Betsy have sure had lots of great times! 🙂

  26. 2sweetnsaxy Says:

    Very nice shot. I almost felt like I was in that catamaran.

  27. Marites Says:

    really cool! I miss those types of cruising:) maybe, this summer I’ll have the chance.

  28. Your EG Tour Guide Says:

    We’ve been fortunate to get to visit this island. It is one of our favorite cruise destinations.

  31. angela Says:

    A drive-in that sounds interesting. It’s a marvellous shot of the twin peaks..

  32. happilyretired Says:

    How BEAUTIFUL this is! When I was in the Caribbean a few years back we didn’t make it to this island, but if I get a chance to go back, methinks I’d like to see it in person.
    Hugs and blessings,
