Independence Day for St. Lucia is Today

Independence Day for St. Lucia – February 22


Nautical Jigsaw Puzzle
The Pitons of St. Lucia

It’s Independence Day for St. Lucia, that beautiful southern Caribbean island nation where you’ll find the twin peaks of the famous Pitons rising out of the sea.  See images of the Pitons, and other Pictures of St. Lucia today as you mentally send your best wishes for a Happy Birthday to the warm and wonderful people there.

It was on February 22, 1979, the very first Independence Day for St. Lucia, that the Caribbean nation finally came into its own, becoming an independent state of The Commonwealth of Nations.   

This popular cruise destination has a lot to offer, from tropical beaches to the pitons, to a rain forest, to a drive in volcano

If you’ve not been there, you should put St. Lucia on your list of places to visit.  Until then, I hope the two lenses mentioned here will serve to give you some of the tropical flavor of this fascinating place. 



Jamaican Independence Day

Jamaican Independence Day – August 4

Have you ever been in another country during one of their national holidays?  I love seeing first hand how others celebrate important days. 

Day after tomorrow is August 4 – Jamaican Independence Day.  Jamaica, has been a fully independent nation since 1962.  Happy Birthday, Jamaica!  Some day, I thik it would be fun to take a cruise that calls at Jamaica on the 4th of August, and see for myself  how Jamaicans celebrate their country’s birthday. 

But, for now, I’ve collected quite a few Pictures of Jamaica so that I can recall the beauty I saw there, and so those who haven’t had the pleasure can enjoy something of the flavor of this Caribbean nation. These next few days would be a good time for you to enjoy them!  The pictures showcase the wok of selected  Zazzle artists and photographers.  This article is one in a series of photos from various cruise destinations.
