First up was our trip to Castries which is one of the largest cities in St. Lucia. The resort had a driver drop us off in the city and then agreed to pick us up a few hours later. We spent the next few hours roaming the little shops in the market area, we had lunch in their "mall" and explored and amazing Catholic Church.
The locals were all very nice and never once were we harassed or given a hard time. Kristian being the outgoing guy he is made friends with everyone we talked to. We were able to buy some neat stuff to bring home for everyone and it was cool being around all the locals.
I did not go on Kristian's deep sea fishing trip because I had no interest in vomiting on my honeymoon (sidenote- he totally puked). He had a great time though and even stopped at the local Rum factory on his way back.
The Friday night Fish Fry in Anse La Raye was a great time. We went with a good number of other couples from the resort. Once we arrived our tour guide from the resort gave us a heads up on which booths to avoid and which booths had the best food. He also hooked everyone up with a free fish sandwich which blew McDonald's filet o fish's out of the water as well as shots of various rums.
(Our "man in a barrel" you lift the barrel and get a little "surprise" best souvenir ever)
Even though we didn't do as many of the day trips as we could have I'm really happy with the ones we did and having the opportunity to really see what the local culture is like and be able to interact with the local people. It really gave us a great insight into the real St. Lucia outside of the fancy resort.
