|One of the two Mahi we caught on the way to Guadeloupe|
The French bread and croissants (especially the chocolate ones) were amazing. I'm still trying to work off all the butter!
We did a hike up the river there and the kids had a blast climbing all over the rocks up hill but then complained about the long walk back to the boat on the road down hill. Go figure?
We kept them entertained by picking up stray mangos on the ground that we could eat later on the boat. This prompted a lot of "Mango! Mango! Mango!"
The next anchorage was Pigeon Island where we snorkeled to the beach and watched the kids play for a while. The sand reminded Paul of the sand in NJ. It was kind of dark brown and there was a lot of sea weed.
|Just like Jersey|
The next day we sailed to the group of small islands off the south end of Guadeloupe called the Saintes and anchored in Baie du Marigot. The Saintes have a different feel compared to mainland Guadeloupe. The islands seem to be more of a holiday destination and a little more touristy but we enjoyed the town of Le Bourg very much. The people were friendly and the island beautiful.
Next time I'll come more prepared.
