DAY 6:  21st May 2014       –    visit day 5:

Following five busy, and energy sapping days, we have a late breakfast and the group divide into two and head off in different directions.

It is our driver Lebo’s first experience at the sea, so he has the privilege of joining the group for the morning, leaving Cedric to walk back to the Apartment and do the ‘lunch’ shopping en route.

Glen and his group walk the Board-walk, a must do activity in St Lucia,




the second group walk directly to the beach from the Apartments.

At lunch time, Lebo returns for the lunch, as we had prepared a picnic lunch.

We arrive at the beach just as a sudden rain storm passes over, and we need to rerun to the Apartment for the picnic lunch, missing the beach picnic.


After lunch the students all head off in different directions to enjoy St Lucia.

The evening the students tackle the task of giving us South Africans a braai around the pool area, with an American barbecue flavour.

The socialising continues as some of us take our leave early.

Cedric’s comment:

I have no pic’s for the day, and trust that one of the group will forward a few that they would like to attach to this post:
