Customs office in Le Marin.
Looking downhill toward the crowded bay.
The small town is colorful and picturesque.
Poor weather kept us on board for the first 4 days. The wind blew 20-25 knots with frequent rain squalls.
This wasn't the only flag unraveling in the wind. We are on our 3rd French courtesy flag in 4 years.
Less then 3 miles from Le Marin is a beautiful beach and the small town of St. Anne.
These beautiful racing boats were out practicing for the upcoming Bastille Day regattas.
Hauling in the sail.
Half-full of water after a rigorous practice, this one is sitting a little low in the water!
Street scenes from St. Anne.
Our lunch spot on the beach. We had acras morue (fishcakes) and poulet coco (chicken in a coconut sauce). Tres bon!
On Sunday afternoon, a large catamaran with about 16 people on board anchored next to us for the afternoon. Girls in bikinis, bare-chested guys and photographers who seemed to be shooting a video.
The only downside was that we had to listen to the same song blaring for 4 hours. We couldn't make out the words but Jim thought they were singing "Who's got the hockey puck, who's got the hockey puck?"
Yeah right, on a French island in the Caribbean!
Photographer getting the close-up butt-shot.
Photo shoot is over and we are left alone to enjoy another beautiful sunset.
A quick position update for those readers who are wondering where we are currently. We are on a mooring between the Pitons in St. Lucia. Tomorrow at dawn we'll sail to Bequia in the Grenadines, approximately 57 nautical miles south.
