Home From St. Lucia

Tomorrow, I may find some words. Today, I am still feeling the gentle rock of the sailboat and the warm ocean breezes.

For now, all I have are images from St. Lucia.

Arrived! Happy Birthday to me!

 The view from our balcony. We stayed at Oasis Marigot Bay. Stunning. Serene. Perfect.

We slowed down, remembered how to look, how to listen.

The world exploded with moments of whimsy and light. 
Long, uninterrupted meals. Completed thoughts.
Warmth. Sunshine. Crashing Waves. 
Best friends. Partners. So very, very happy.

I have to be honest, Paul has shades of Daniel Craig in him. And you know how I feel about that man :)

So glad the trip was safe, relaxing and oh so enjoyable, but I'm even more happy you're back.

So lovely! So happy! And I am, too - because I finally have figured out how to comment on your site.

I never had a Google account and couldn't work OpenID so....

I've come. I've read and admired.

Never commented.

It's a new day for the technologically challenged, here.

Ahhhhh. Not as good as St. Lucia, but still.

Melani said...

What great pics! You both look awesome and so in love! Happy Birthday and Happy Vacation!

GORGEOUS! I lived in St. Croix for 6 years and I miss the Caribbean. I spent two weeks in St. Lucia once, too. (At a spa, kicking alcohol, but that's another story)

Thanks for sharing!!
