This week's image was made the same day I booked reservations for St. Lucia — not!
But I am reminded by less than secret yearnings, near and far, for someplace less winter-ish.
Where is St. Lucia? I seem to hear frequently of people heading there, planning to head there, or there.
We recently received emails (with attached photos, of course) from a friend who just arrived at a very exotic beach location. It looks like a nice place.
My photograph above does not resemble the photograph our friend sent from St. Lucia. But the photo looking across the harbor from east to west was a good contrast to share. His photo had no lobster boats and no snow. Both photos had water, so I'd guess St. Lucia is not in the Andes or central Argentina.
Boothbay Harbor appears to be less active than St. Lucia. Visitors wear less clothing in St. Lucia and they seem to walk around with drinks in their hands, often. We do that here too, just not as much outside.
And I think we use fewer straws (more drinking directly from bottles and cans). That must have something to do with ambient temperatures. We warm up and drink cold.
It looks like people in St. Lucia don't need wood stoves and baseboard heat. Maybe it would be fun to invite some native St. Lucians to visit Boothbay Harbor now for a little break from perfect, tropical paradise. I'm thinking “re-branding” here: “Boothbay Harbor — Drink inside and sulk.”
Our marketing team will be “reaching out” and “moving forward.” It's a win-win situation!
