Little Weekend Links 47

Ah, a full week in London, a full inbox and an empty suitcase! I’ve spent much of this week playing catch up and editing photos from Saint Lucia, but I’m looking forward to going out and about to enjoy the Fall weather (hopefully not with an umbrella) this weekend.

Saint Lucia was a stunning place, lush, vibrant, colourful. I came home with almost 3,000 photos and obviously I won’t be sharing all of them, but I’ll put up a few more posts in the coming weeks. It was an island of both extreme poverty and excess built up for tourists (who drive the majority of the economy). There were wonderfully friendly people full of excellent advice for us, some waiting to pounce on white faces with offers of boat tours and necklaces made of islands plants and others with permanent scowls on their faces. We met and spoke with a couple of locals, enjoyed a homemade breadfruit pie, saw this amazing hand painted Rasta house below, traveled up and down both coasts, stopped in crumbling villages, palm tree-lined beaches, stayed in a private villa and experienced the tourist resorts in the north. All in all, a beautifully sunny place and a much needed relaxing break from reality.

What are you up to this weekend? Anyone have plans to look forward to?

    I can’t wait to hear more about your vacation in St. Lucia and see lots more photos!! I grew up on all sorts of different sugary cereals. Capn Crunch was probably my favorite. Now I either have granola and yogurt or a hardboiled egg and some toast. This weekend is Open House Chicago, so I’m off with my husband to snap some photos of buildings rarely open to the public. There’s a cool Frank Lloyd Wright house just a bit north of where we live that we want to see and the Brewster Apartments, which was in the movie Child’s Play. Should we a good time! Have a great weekend, Steph!

      Oh, your open house sounds exciting. There’s one in London every year two but I’ve never been. I really should go next year because there are a ton of buildings I’d like to see around here that aren’t normally open to the public. Capn Crunch brings back memories! That’s funny. I loved Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles as well. Do delicious yet so full of sugar…Enjoy the open house. Hope you blog about it! xo
