7/2/2017 : Les Saintes, Guadeloupe

We're back in our favourite place in the Caribbean, the small island chain of Les Saintes just south of Guadeloupe.  It's a truly beautiful place and the perfect place to celebrate achieving 30,000 nautical mikes (37,500 statute miles) just before we entered the harbour.  Quite an achievement in sailing terms!

The winds continue to be strong and our sail down from Monserrat on Monday was exciting.  Jon and Hannah handled it with aplomb and we arrived in Des Haies in under 6 hours.  Today, after a morning snorkeling, we have walked into the small capital of Bourg De Saintes for lunch overlooking the harbour ... lovely.  Despite the high winds it's 30 degrees today so we're not complaining!  We'll be spending several days here relaxing now ...
