As loyal UC readers know, I’m a sucker for the sweet sunsets that close out each day all over the Caribbean. It’s not just the explosion of incendiary colors that fill the sky as the great glowing orb slowly disappears, but rather the whole sensory experience that really gets me.
Waves crashing or lapping at the shore, fishing boats motoring back to port, sea birds serenading the end of the day – there’s just nothing like it.
The photo above brings all of these sensations to mind, though only in my imagination. It was snapped by our good friend and frequent UC photo contributor Hiral Gosalia during a visit to St. Lucia just a few weeks ago.
Upon sharing his images with me, Hiral mentioned that the sunsets were a big highlight of his trip, and you can definitely see why in the photo – bold, dramatic, and simply beautiful, like St. Lucia herself.
It’s been so long since I’ve visited the island, though, that I can’t remember what it’s like to experience the rest of the scene; the sweetness beyond what you see here.
Clearly, we’ll have to fix that soon…Got any great memories of St. Lucia that you’d like to share? Let us know by leaving a comment below…
