Delaware Online My family and I spent "primary week" on the rugged, verdant Caribbean island of St. Lucia. We vacationed at a beautiful bluff-top villa owned (coincidentally) by the family of Democratic State Senate candidate Dee Durham, who unfortunately lost her primary. But more about that later. Ah, St. Lucia! Clear blue waters. Spectacular sunsets. Plenty of lagoons for diving and snorkeling. Outstanding cuisine. Impeccable service. A live volcano. No TV. Perhaps most importantly, a new favorite beer: Piton, named after St. Lucia's famous "twin peaks." Just a week of sun, fun, the printed word, and family togetherness.
