Worldly Wednesday: Where in the World is Phyllis?

Phyllis has landed!

Where, you ask?

In paradise, of course!

She's making new friends at the preschool in the mountainside village of Grace, on the lovely island of Saint Lucia.

Word on the street is that she's been to the beach, the bus stop, up the mango and banana trees, and inside the local rum shop (but we couldn't confirm what she was doing in there).

Now...onto the weather report.  Though a typical weather report from sunny St. Lucia would include "seeing one's shadow," the day Phyllis picked to do her shadow-spotting (yesterday), it was all clouds and rain (check out the pic below of the storm clouds)!  Though that might sound like a downer, the cozy 88-degree (F) temperature was a nice consolation prize.  And this morning, Phyllis is predicting only a few showers that the Trade Winds will quickly usher past the island so she can have plenty of fun making shadow puppets on the beach this afternoon.

Enough talk, let's see photos of Phyllis on her most relaxing leg yet of the World Tour!
Check out those storm clouds!

Phyllis headed inside the preschool in Grace to take cover!

But when the rain stopped, it was time for a mango!

And a nap on the beach - right where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean Sea!

Phyllis is patiently waiting for these bananas to turn yellow...

Want to see more photos from Saint Lucia?  Friend Miranda Paul on Facebook to see my Saint Lucia photo albums.  I've been there nearly a dozen times!

(If you don't know what this is all about, visit Susanna Leonard Hill's Website - she'll explain all this groundhog mayhem.)

Comments are open!   Leave Phyllis a message and she'll get it in Saint Lucia.  Please note, however, she probably can't send a postcard to each and every one of you... :)

Hi Phylli,

just wondering how those St Lucian palm trees match up to the Nice ones? Though I realize we couldn't offer you any tropical mangos while you were here!

Did you meet any new critters over there?

Hi Phyllis,

Wow, it looks like you're having fun! Lucky you, getting a vacation in paradise! That beach looks gorgeous, and I know how much fun you're going to have with those preschoolers :)

I miss you and look forward to when you get home and can tell me every detail of your trip!

Love, Mom

P.S. Dn't eat TOO many mangos and bananas at once :)

Fabulous visit to St. Lucia. Phyllis certainly had a busy time. Loved the rain clouds. Have been there and it is beautiful. Glad you had fun with Phyllis and her visit to a school! Phyllis is seriously a rock star and Susanna is going to have trouble living with her.
