On our way down to St Vincent we sailed past the Pitons of St Lucia. It’s a protected area and rather pricey (for us) to stop and anchor there. 

The islanders named their local beer after these rock cones and apparently they are quite famous. The beer is good though, my favorite is the lemon flavored. It’s only 2% alcohol so our lunchtime beer time doesn’t send us into nap time 😉

I must admit, they look a whole lot cooler (greener and more “tropical-islandy”) in the photoshopped brochures & cruising guides. Maybe we got them on a bad day…

    Don´t forget, its dry season right now. Come back in December -January then they look much better.
    All the best for you two. A safe trip, wherever you will sail.
