Thankfully Thursday morning Jim felt better so after breakfast we took a short walk to Pigeon Island. Pigeon Island is a national park with ruins of old military bases that were used during the fight for the island of St. Lucia between the French and the British. The views were amazing!
|We had a huge hike up the hill and the kids were troopers. |
Up, up and up!
|We made it! Just look at that view!|
|Sitting on one of the old cannons.|
|Making our way back down.|
|Resting along the way. One of the employees at our resort went with us as a tour guide.|
|Luke loves bugs, insects of all kinds. He found several creatures along the way and put them in an empty water bottle to keep.|
Later that afternoon we decided to take a boat/sunset tour of the island. It was fun seeing the island from the water and all the different little towns and beaches along the shoreline.
|Ready to leave.|
Shortly after we got going, the motion and sound from the boat put all three kids to sleep. They needed a little rest!
|Our captains knew just the right stops for some good snorkeling. We saw some amazing fish! The boys loved it as well.|
|The captains decided to cast a few fishing lines while we were moving. Every time they had a bite on the line they would let the kids have a turn reeling it in. They loved it.|
|One of the catches.|
|The kids loved fishing. They anxiously awaited the next bite..|
We saw some beautiful sights along the way.
These guys were fishing with nets. That's one way to do it.
|These are the famous Piton mountains on the island.|
We got to watch the sunset on the way back.
