The 2010 trip to St. Lucia started at the MacDonald Cartier International Airport in Ottawa. In the photo below, you can see one of the control towers at the far side of the perimeter. For many years, when I was working close to the airport, I used to jog along the country roads and ski in the farmers' fields during lunch hours.K and I had some quiet time inside Air Canada's Maple Leaf Lounge before boarding the plane to Toronto where we spent the night at the Westin Hotel near the Pearson Airport.The next morning, We rushed back to the airport to catch the flight to St. Lucia. Prior to departure, I had a cafe latte and croissant at the Maple Leaf Lounge there.Five hours and 15 minutes later, we arrived at the Hewanorra International Airport. Welcome to St. Lucia !!!
