Then on to The Saints with their great French vibe. It’s now all mooring balls rather than anchoring which saves the hassle of dragging. Wandered around, chilled and hired a golf cart to visit all the beaches, museum etc. Nice relaxed time.
And so to Guadeloupe. First we anchored on the west coast at the Cousteau marine park for a night, dinghies over to the island for snorkelling—plenty of fish and some live coral. Then up to Deshaies for a couple of nights—-time in town, botanic gardens etc. Again memories!
And on to Antigua—Jolly Harbour marina—bus to English Harbour—-much changed and all now superyachts! Shame. Walked up the trail to Shirley Heights for the Sunday music etc. They now charge for entry—another shame as the locals don’t go! I then left the boat for a week with Tuomas and Anna and spent a week in U.K.—-London and a quick visit to Scotland—Crieff to see Simon & co, lunch in Edinburgh with Eric, Pat, Sarah and her children.
Back on board on 11th February and on 13th we sailed to Nevis—-fast sail in 25 knot winds under poled Genoa and prevented mizzen. Lot of rolling in a big sea! Next day ashore to clear in and see town—-still charming, non-touristy and laid back! Next day to a Plantation for lunch and a walk, Golden Rock. Memories!
And now ashore at Sunshine’s bar for a Killer Bee!
