I will be there for one day, me and my wife.
I have been 25 years ago 2 weeks with my parents and loved it.
I woul like to rent a car and travel the island; tell me, I remember on the north side of the island there was a cave, not Harrisson! it was a small one you would go down in ground strairs and arrive in a cave with a bit of water in it and the wave where slaching the side of it. Do you know that place? does it still exist?

Because of the nov 30 celebration, would it be still ok to rent a moke?
Is there more trafic because of the holiday?
David Stoutes car rental offer me a moke for 82.63 usd for one day all inclusive,
insurance, 15% tax, and 1 local driver permit include.

Holetown; is it still nice?
Can we walk on the beach?
I will take all your advice, thank you in advance

I think you are referring to Animal Flower Cave at North Point in St. Lucy.

Did it look like this?

Yes, it’s still there and open everyday 9-5.

I’ve only seen two Independence Day celebrations in 14 years as we usually arrive in early January, but I don’t remember the traffic being much worse except where the parades were being held. Perhaps one of the good folks that live on the island could answer that for us.

There is a big parade at Garrison Savannah, sports competitions, fairs and community events. The Parliament Buildings are lighted as are the office buildings and the turnabouts. Try to see it at night on that day.

There’s also a Festival of the Creative Arts held in many places where you’ll see all of the local talent, paintings, singing and art.

I never recommend mokes as they are not secure, but many folks rent them without any problems.

Holetown is where we live now and yes, it is a nice place. Park anywhere and you can walk to any beach that you wish; they are all open to the public.

My best wishes for a wonderful time on the island. :)

I am quiet new on this board, I tried to start a new message but I did something wrong!

Yes, your answer helped and that was the place I was looking for, the animal cave.

But have a look I posted a new message hopping for your gook knowledge again!

Thank you very much
