Caribbean dreams, Del. realities

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.

Endless days spent on the famed Eagle Beach floating in crystal clear, aquamarine warm waters is why massive throngs of tourists return annually to this island paradise.

What the smaller out-of-the-way beaches lack in amenities, they more than makeup for with countless miles of buttery sand and surfer-ready waves. Plant your sun lounger by the water's edge and make a beeline to the Top Ten Secret Beaches in the Caribbean and try not to let the cat out of the bag.
