Dec. 17 – welcome to France

It was a lumpy bumpy close hauled sail from St. Croix. We couldn’t get to Dominica so opted for Guadeloupe instead. It’s French. It’s crowded with boats. It’s expensive. We’ll head further south in a day or so.

Tried to check in at the souvenir shop when we arrived but it was closed for a wedding.  Checked in  this morning. Online. Easy with no need to show papers. 4 euros. Nearly impossible to book a land tour and a snorkeling trip is 60 euros each! We’ll visit the botanical garden then probably leave.  Tourist Center is never open.

It’s a nice view into the anchorage.
