San Lucia is a very small island nation in the east of the Caribbean. It is the birthplace of the Nobel Prize winning author, Derek Walcott. I have read many of his plays.

The most popular destination on the island is the colonial town of Soufriere. Tourists and boaters really like this town because it is next to the giant rocks called the Pitons. These rocks, which stick right out of the water, are a World Heritage Site.

The north side of the island is a popular place for foreigners to have a second house. It felt like a resort area in North America because there were American style shopping malls and restaurants. We liked the quieter, more special places in other parts of the island.
