Visit to Bourg des Saintes
Date 2000 – 17 March 2011
Yesterday passed without much ado, anchored off Ilet à Cabrit. The
water is very clear so snorkelling over the coral near the shore was great and
we followed this by a walk up to
Today we motored Caduceus across to anchor off Bourg des Saintes
in order to visit
and do some re-provisioning. The views from the fort were panoramic as you might expect from somewhere designed as a massive defensive gun battery.
We cheated and took the municipal bus up to the fort as it closed for the day at 1230. We did however walk down and with a slight detour came across a field of goats complete with almost as many iguanas.
Shopping, mainly a resupply of liquid refreshment completed we returned to the Ilet à Cabrit anchorage; the more observant will note, not in quite the same place as yesterday.
