June 28, 2010... Guadeloupe, En Fin!
Anchoring in Deshaies, a fishing village on the northwest coast of Guadeloupe, we cleaned up and dinghied to town. What a beautiful little place -- really just a couple of streets with a red roofed white church on the hill that chimes every 15 minutes. We searched out Customs to check in, which was an unusually pleasant experience. And we had a fabulous lunch in one of the open air restaurants overlooking the harbor. We may have to try them all... All the shops are closed midday, so we waited for the small supermarket to open to buy tonight's dinner: French wine, French cheese, and French bread. Vive La France!
