September 29, 2005 Castries, St. Lucia St. Lucia turned out to be our favorite island. We took a bus down the west coast of the island, stopping in the fishing village of Canaries. After stopping by the Soufrière volcano and several stunning views of the Grand Pitons, we arrived at the city of Soufrière for a pleasant lunch. We then boarded a catamaran for our return to Castries. We made a short stop for snorkeling off of Anse La Raye beach and enjoyed the sea air all the way back to Castries. Even though we had been skeptical at first about the eight hour length of the shore excursion, we were quite pleased with everything. St. Lucia turned out to be our favorite island of the cruise and we are seriously considering returning for an extended stay.
