I may be Home but that Doesn’t Mean the Honeymoon is Over

Hey everybody! (You 10 awesome folks that read me) So I am back from my honeymoon in St. Lucia. Of course, everything was amazing.  First we stayed at the Sandals Grande for 6 nights. If you’re considering, DO. This place and the people there are incredible! Every single person is treated like a rock star. You feel like you have your own concierge. Seriously, I actually asked for an email address for the head honcho just so I could tell him how amazing this location is. (I’m a firm believer in positive reinforcement…and the possibility of complimentary thingies.) I could honestly go on and on for a long me and frankly, I’m too tired. Just trust me. Totally worth it. Then we stayed on the other side of the island in between the famous Pitons at Ladera. Again. Incredible. It’s basically, super amazing camping. We ate at the award winning Dasheene every day and it was totally worthy. Unfortunately, I do not have any photos to represent and you’ll just have to take my word for it. Take a look at my video tour after some pics if you have 10 minutes. The view will stun you.

Sampling strange new fruits!

The larger pink fruit filled with gooey green stuff is a passionfruit and behind it is something called a wax apple. The passionfruit was surprisingly sour but still good. The wax apple is very crisp and crunchy and like a cross between an apple and a pear but less juicy.

There was actually a very large front that made it rain a large portion of the time we were there. BUT where there is rain...

...there is sometimes a rainbow! If you are as lucky as us that is! I still can't believe I got this shot. It was only there for about 5 minutes. How magical!

Fresh Coconut

A Julie Mango (or St. Julian). Our cab driver told us out of the dozens and dozens of cultivars, this was his favorite. I can see why. It melted in my mouth.


There are lots more photos on my flickr and I’ll be adding some underwater ones later as well. Stay tuned for the next installment in egg class which will be over easy and over medium. I’ll also (FINALLY!) be showing you the easiest way to fold a fitted sheet nicely.

Here’s a video tour of our villa if you’re interested. It is pretty amazing. You may recognize the view from Superman II. (There’s a brief scene where he flies away to go pick a Bird of Paradise for Lois.)
