Board Game / Caribbean Cruise / Travel Adventure

When ssc Island Dancer sails to St.Lucia, a visit to Pigeon Island is in order. This island

(now connected to the mainland by a causeway) was used by pirates, notably a Frenchman known to seafaring Spaniards as Pie de Palo (peg leg), as a lookout point for likely victims: The island’s harbour was used by the British fleet in the years that St.Lucia, (“the Fair Helen of the West Indies”), was fought over mainly by the French and the English: Today, however, the island is the home of St.Lucia’s annual Jazz Festival and also the site of a theatre named after St.Lucian poet, playwright and Nobel Prize winner Derek Walcott. ~ Ship Card (visiting Islands N-100 & N-101)
