Hot Days: Hot Jazz

Travel Photo Thursday

Over attravelFREAK, I wrote about my hot experience in the Caribbean, on hot May Days, during the hot St. Lucia Jazz Festival. Did I mention it was hot??

  1. It looks like everyone was having a great time. Good music, good food; what more could you ask for? Oh yes, and the heat and sunshine :)

    1. Yep. You got it. Hot. But then I imagine you’re used to that kind of hot. (I bought a hot yellow t-shirt to remind me of the sun on that day.)

    1. Yes, Jan, the food was great. I was berating myself, though for not having notes about exactly WHAT was being served. Guess I was too busy eating!

  2. St. Luica is one of the islands my son has in his sights for a destination wedding – but in November so it shouldn’t be quite as hot.I don’t do hot really well but a jazz festival would be fun.

    1. I highly recommend the beautiful grounds of East Winds Inn for a wedding! And for a honeymoon, there are so many gorgeous resorts it is hard to choose.
