flying over the Pitons

flying over the Pitons Originally uploaded by Steve_Mc Took my first ever helicopter ride the other day – a 30-minute trip around St. Lucia. Excellent way to see the island! The Pitons are a focal point, around which the flight ‘orbits’ then goes over to the east coast.I was also impressed with how forested and unspoiled the south east and east side of the island is. I think the pilot should have just piped ‘Ride of the Valkyries’ through the headphones rather than his commentary. One really needs to be right next to the window to get the best pics (I wasn’t!). Just have to do it...
