We had a really nice passage from St. Anne, Martinique to Rodney Bay, St. Lucia. The winds we a steady 15-20knots and seas were nice. We had our fishing rods out, but did not even had a bite!!As soon as we anchored in Rodney Bay we were greeted by Gregory, who was selling fruits and veggies from his boat. He kindly welcomed us and told us he could get us anything we need.
We purchased a few things from him and they were delicious!!
Rich went in and checked us in and then we raised the courtesy flag.
The next day we rented a car to explore the island from the land.
As we were driving around we discovered it was election day. These little stands were set up along the roads so the people could come and vote.

We stopped and had lunch in the town of Soufriere which is at the base of the Piton’s.

The next day was not rainy and was much nicer so we had a beach day!! There was an obstacle course set up in the water that Rich and Tyler wanted to try out. They had a lot of fun!!
After the obstacle course it was time for Lunch. We ate fresh Roti’s on the beach.
Gregory found us and asked us if we wanted some fresh Conch.
… and people started taking our picture as we were talking and buying conch from Gregory.
We stayed in Rodney Bay for about a week and every morning we woke up and took walks on the beach.
We got together with our friends on “Hanna” and “Escape Claws” for beers at Antillia Brewing Company.
The day we left Rodney Bay, we made a quick stop for drinks and lunch a Marigot Bay.
Rich forgot to put on a shirt before going into the restaurant!!
Cheers!! Celebrating Kevin and Barbara’s 1 year anniversary of living aboard!!
Next stop….. The anchorage between the Pitons.
