The next few hours were a blur of waiting to board, flying, sitting in JFK airport, waiting to board again and then flying 5 hours to St. Lucia. We finally made it there by 3pm in the afternoon and I was starving and tired. The drive to the hotel was about an hour over some very hilly terrain. It was beautiful though.

The next few days were filled with sun and lounging at the pool. Brian loved having the swim up pools so he could go and get drinks very easily. We ordered food by the pool most days and just enjoyed relaxing!
I basically lived in my bathing suit except for when I worked out or went to dinner. It was awesome. On the 4th day of our trip we took a catamaran boat ride to the other side of the island to see the beautiful Pitons! You may recognize these mountains from the finale of the Bachelor a few years ago with Jake and Vienna. We actually sailed passed the resort that they stayed at!

Once we got to the little village by the Pitons, we got off and were taken on a tour of a botanical gardens and also the sunken volanco. The sad part is that during the botanical gardens my camera battery died. I was so upset and partially blamed Brian for not reminding me to charge my camera.
The gardens were beautiful and even though I was bummed about my camera, I soon was over it and just enjoyed out little excursion.
The next two days were once again relaxed by the pool and ate lots of food. The best part was that there were actually great sunsets to enjoy from our balcony!
It was such an amazing trip and I loved St. Lucia - such a beautiful island and so relaxing. I am just so thankful that we didn't have a run in with a hurricane. It only rained a few times during the trip and for the most part the temperatures were in the high 80s (26C)! I am so glad that we waited a few days after the wedding before going on the honeymoon - that way I was all rested up and ready to enjoy the sun and fun.
