Balenbouche Estate is a place of quiet natural beauty with relics of a colonial past. Owned for the past three decades by Ute Lawaetz , she manages the property with her two daughters as a farm/historic site/bed and breakfast/event space. While I stayed there the last two weeks in April, ripe mangos were falling randomly from trees and tropical flowers opened in a succession of spendor.
There is so much to explore there I had to tear myself away to experience what the rest of St.Lucia had to offer. As a photographer, there was more than enough at Balenbouche to keep me busy: landscapes, flowers, animals, architecture, the ocean. And this doesn't even include the events that go on there.
These images offer a taste of my two weeks at this magical destination. I offer this as my Balenbouche album.
