From deserted anchorages, to queuing to get under the lifting bridge, to enter the lagoon. (Which has lots of mosquitoes needless to say) What a contrast.|
We did however have our best sail yet in the Caribbean, (sorry to be an anorak), 15-18kn on the beam, gentle sea with little swell: We covered 55m in just under 7 hours, sweet!
This island is hard to describe, Dutch, French, American, Fast Food, Casinos, Restaurants, TV pickups, Open Drains, Chickens in the road, Guilders, Euros, Dollars; confused culturally, certainly!
It does have a lovely chandlers however; twas like Christmas for a yachtie! Have to fit the bits to Sea Squared now though.
