St. Lucia - Day 5

On our last full day we decided to try out the Sandals Grande, a different Sandals resort on St. Lucia. If you stay at one you can play at all three resorts on the island. The beach at the Grande was a lot calmer than the beach where we were staying because it is up in a cove. So, we decided since the water was so much smoother we would try our hand at sailing. Or rather, I begged Len to take me on one of the little boats, and he finally caved :).

The Sandals guy gave us about a 10 minute lesson, snapped a shot of us before he got off, and then sent us on our way. Which is terrifying considering how easy it is to flip one of these things.

Way to go boat driver! He was so scared.

Sailing, sailing (isn't there a song that goes like that)

Then we spent the rest of the day laying out on the beach.

Look closely in the middle of this picture to see my little friend. He would come out every once in a while to make sure we were still there.

Then that night we went and had dinner at Kimono's, the japanese restaurant on the resort. It was pretty much a St. Lucian version of Benihana.

Except they set our plates on fire. That has never happened to me at any other hibachi grill!
Then we turned in early, dreading our long trip home the next day.
