Long time no post!  I have been extremely busy at work, traveling and enjoying the beach with my wife & in laws who just went back to Canada a few days ago.

We had a great time with them as do most expats when family comes to visit.  Here is a family picture at Spotts beach.   Notice Bijou, our lovebird on Julie’s shoulder 🙂


One of my travel destinations took me to the Island of St-Lucia!  WOW.  What a nice place. Unfortunately I only had one day to see the island. However, I took full advantage of it.

Here are the most recognizable landmarks of St-Lucia (and a UNESCO world heritage site), the “Pitons”.


At Soufrière, there is a dormant (or semi-dormant if you ask me) and very smelly volcano.   It smells like a million rotten eggs but is super interesting.  You can see the hot steam and bubbling mud in the pits. Definitely something you do not see everyday.


Final picture from St-Lucia ; there are 10 or so natural waterfalls around the island like this one.  Its refreshing and lots of fun! I think you will agree.


The title of this post is “Bio-bay” which is a definite highlight and discovery we made in Cayman just 2 weeks ago.  The Bio bay Kayak tour is as follows.  From the Kaibo yacht club (Near Rum point for those unfamiliar with Kaibo), you leave just after sundown on sea kayaks for a +-45 minute paddle. You follow the shoreline and the guide/owner Tom who really knows his stuff, so no danger at all even though its dark. The real payoff is once you reach a closed bay.

The water becomes bioluminescent when you move the water such as with your paddle or hand!  Seriously … we were all freaking out! 🙂 Its amazing and totally not what you would expect.  You unfortunately cant take a picture of the phenomenon since it apparently does not come out.  In any case, I highly recommend you try it out.  Its well worth the price and the evening drive to the North side.  Just make sure that you are able to paddle a Kayak for 2X45 minutes (there and back) Below is the link to the Web site.  Tell Tom that Micho sent you!
