We decided to venture out one day during our St. Lucian trip so that we could see the southern part of the island and have lunch at Ladera (a gorgeous spot nestled between the Gros Piton and the Petite Piton). This was the view from our table. Despite being hot and humid, I think I was in awe the entire time. Talk about a view…the clouds and the overall scale of the landscape made for a stunning shot.
Calabash Cove is a small resort near the northernmost point of Saint Lucia. It’s a beautiful property that hugs the coastline, full of natural lush greenery and plantings that compliment the facility and the private cottages that dot the coastline. One of the features of the property is this lovely little gazebo that overlooks the shoreline and has an unbelievable vantage point towards the west and sunsets every night. I loved the flowers and the colors throughout the property, and the rich blue sky and amazing clouds that always seemed to hang around. Just at the left corner of the gazebo, a faint hit of a rainbow can be seen as a result from the rainstorm out on the horizon.
The coastline of St. Lucia is beautiful. It is lush, rocky for portions of it – and little fishing villages dot the western coast along with beaches. The most majestic and striking part of the island’s geography is the vista you see here. The Pitons (the Gros Piton and the Petite Piton) jut out into the sky just above the city of Soufriere, and just happen to be catching some gorgeous light in this shot – which was taken on our way home from an adventure around the island. The village gives the scene some scale – these things are just incredible. Later this week I’ll feature a shot taken during lunch at a restaurant perched on one of the hills in the foreground that sits between the two pitons.
I’m home from our honeymoon in St. Lucia following an amazing wedding. Everything worked out ridiculously perfectly, with much of the day captured by wedding photographer extraordinaire Kate McElwee! See Part I and Part II to enjoy a glimpse of our day. Following a great morning spent with family and friends, my brother drove us to Boston for the afternoon on Sunday, where we spent a night before flying out at dawn to the beautiful tropical destination of St. Lucia. For a few days I’ll be featuring some of the sights we enjoyed while away.
Here’s a shot of Mrs. Cohen lounging by the ocean. Thanks for your patience, I hope you enjoy some of the new goodies!
