Our last encounter with St. Lucia wasn’t my fave. But, as it turns out, the island is a relatively easy and tax-advantageous place for us to receive packages from the United States. For this reason alone, it became a necessary stop on our way north.
As we continue to wait for the arrival of our stuff, we decided to try something new and took a mooring at the Capella Resort and Marina in Marigot Bay. In addition to the mooring, $30 US per day provides us full use of the resort facilities, including two pools, lots of lovely spots for lounging, a gym, showers, spa, four restaurants, and the gracious hospitality of their friendly staff.
It’s a pretty sweet place to get stuck for a while. We’ve been doing projects, working out, eating our weight in Indian food at the marina restaurant, and chilling at the pool. We even have friends here with us! As of today, we still do not have confirmation that our shipment has left Miami. Luckily, Marigot Bay has redeemed St. Lucia for us, and we’re living it up as we wait!
