For our honeymoon, Chris and I headed to the Sandals Regency La Toc resort in St. Lucia. We spent 7 days on the beach and it was the perfect way to spend the week after your wedding. After the stress of planning a wedding, I wanted nothing more than to sit my butt on a chair on the beach and soak up the sunshine. Castries was beautiful and hot and it only ever rained for a couple minutes so our outdoor time was hardly ever interrupted. Chris and I did make a “no cell” rule so my iPhone pictures are limited. We did purchase a waterproof point and shoot, which served as our main camera. It was a great investment and allowed us to spend a little less time staring at our phones and more time with each other.
On Sunday morning, we woke up at the Hilton at Easton at 4:30 in the morning. To say it was rough is an understatement. We rolled out of bed, made sure we had all of our belongings and took a cab to the airport. Fortunately, our 12 hour day of travel wasn’t so bad and we were so grateful when we finally made it the resort (travel advice: eat at the airport rather than waiting until you arrive).
We spent our first full day in the pool and lying out by the beach. It was such a beautiful day and I was so happy to be near a beach for the first time in almost 5 years. It was nice to get clean up a bit for a nice romantic dinner at Neptune’s
We were surprised how early the sun sets in St. Lucia. The sun started going down around 6, which is much earlier than the typical 9PM sunset in Ohio this time of year. However, the sunsets were beautiful
More photos from our honeymoon will be up soon!
