A visitor’s take on the Island Scene. Refugee rastas from Zimbabwe? A trained lawyer tourguide? I guess it’s really true that anything is possible in sweet St. Lucia

I have just returned from a stay there ( No I did not disappear, Dan Hodges, into a nineteenth century opium den,(see http://bit.ly/XM83jx). But digesting the horrors of Leveson and midway through a long disturbing investigation into a historic paedophile scandal requires a break.
The hotel chosen by my wife, Margaret, from a Sovereign holiday brochure, proved to be a great find – remarkable oasis of calm and privacy – and yet extraordinary spacious and comfortable – and by no means the most expensive venue there.
While many hotels are crammed into massive noisy resorts – this one was tucked away alongside a wild and semi deserted public beach where horses cantered along the shore with the local youth demonstrating their bareback riding skills on Sundays.
