We have just had a lovely few days in Guadeloupe. We have been anchored at
the top of the island in Deshaies. We hired a car and explored the interior
of the island with its lush rain forests
As a department of France it is a world of difference from the old English
dependencies , with a proper infrastructure; everything seems to work, major
roads all the shops you would expect in a French city. We met a yacht that I
raced on last year and it was good to catch up. We leave tomorrow for Ilses
De Saintes for a couple of days, then Martinique.
