Walking Saint Lucia - Anse Lavoutte to Esperance

A 2.5 hour walk along part of the northern East Coast of Saint Lucia - beautiful walk...makes you wish they'd preserve this area for the Nation - all the way to top of Cap Estate...lovely.

Red Puff Plant .... I'm sure it has a real name :-)
Wild(?) Donkeys - were very curious to see us near Comerette
'The Beast' stalking its prey... Comerette
One of the many 'Morning Glories"
Still thinking about whether they should follow us or run...

Back to civilization - 'the English Garden'

This walk was about 5 1/3 miles - gentle ups n downs some muddy areas (rainy season) some loose stones, some grass with rocks hidden - walking sticks are good, water and snacks too - enjoy!!!
