We spent another three days in the Saintes visiting Terre-de-Bas, on board Saga, where we saw an old pottery which used to make moulds for sugar loafs, until the demise of the sugar industry. Terre-de-Bas has lots of Iguanas but we only saw three when we stopped for lunch and they were too shy to have their pictures taken. Then we spent two days in Pain de Sucre bay walking and snorkelling, lots of colour in lovely clear water. Inge and Thomas departed for Dominica on Tuesday and we sailed north to Pointe a Pitre on Guadeloupe.
This is the biggest town we have seen anywhere in the Caribbean, it is a major harbour and very busy. We are anchored at present and the boat only rolls when the ferries are passing, quite a change after the last two weeks when our anchorages have been open to swell.
