Hence yours today and it enticed me back. Although I do visit the boards from time to time. I'm known as Sa...

Elaine, you're right...I also think St Lucia is absolutely beautiful, all those hills, rain forests and banana plantations and the coastline is stunning, especially around the Pitons. Tourism has stepped up a bit but I feel it has not been spoilt, although I only go up to the North so can't really s...

I remember all his photos of family and friends pressed under the glass on glass topped coffee tables. I've also seen his house on Mustique but couldn't get in!! Al...

Just been up and I had a look at the renovation of the derelict cottage at Souter and thought it looked great. They've put in french windows and the whole thing, house and garden, is beginning to look very attractive. Mind, it was a really lovely, hot day but I just thought what a great place to live.

Gandhi's Temple

You know the bandstand near The Sanddancer pub? Well, I've always known it as the bandstand but my Dad tells me that people of his generation called it 'Gandhi's Temple' but he doesn't know why. Anyone know?

Just been up and had a look at the Shopping Centre. I still think it looks pretty awful 'in real life' but my 84 year old Dad (who hates change, modern buildings and the loss of the old-style Shields) really surprised me when he said he supposed we should wait until it's finished before we pass judg...

Yes, great photos!! I've already said in another post that I was in S/S 09 - 19 September but didn't know about the 'Board Meeting'. No access to my computer. You all look like you had a good time. Wish I'd been there.

Aaaaaa.....I was in S/S from 9 - 19 Sep and could have come. But I had no access to a computer so didn't know about it. What a shame. Maybe another time.

No, baldy. No older sister called Maisie. But Elsy is not really a common name is it? So they could be related somewhere. Janet Elsy's father was the Elsy in Elsy & Gibbons.

memor.....just another person we both knew!!!!!!!!.....and another that you "admired"..........
