|Philly crew (and Hanna) on Gros Piton in St. Lucia
Upon arrival, Dana and I were quick to visit Michael, Mary, John, Meghan, Ben, and Jackie at their villa. We got updated on everything going on in Philly since we left and had a fun evening together. The next morning we were up early to embark on a adventurous hike up Gros Piton along with Hanna. St. Lucia is famous for the Pitons, Gros and Petit. We decided to hike Gros, the taller one. We ended up getting there a bit late and the hike was more arduous than expected. We made it to the halfway point before turning back and were treated to a spectacular view of Petit Piton and the open ocean. Afterward, we had a drink at the luxurious Ladera Hotel where we watched the sunset behind both Pitons. It was an amazing day.
