Andre & Louise visit
18 February 2012
Marc's Mom and Dad joined us on the boat on Jan 20th for a 10 day adventure. We left Pointe-a-Pitre and headed along the south edge of the eastern part of the Guadeloupe butterfly, Grande Terre. Our first stop was at Anse Accul, the Club Med beach, just west of Sainte Anne. It was a beautiful calm anchorage and we were the only private boat in the bay. On Sunday we rented a car to see some of inland Guadeloupe. Unfortunately nothing was open, just like the good old days back home, when people spent time at home with their families. Thankfully we found a place open that was serving lunch. Andre and Louise had visited Guadeloupe 27 years ago and were excited to find the hotel that they had stayed in, with a fresh paint job, still in operation. Our next destination was St. Francois, which we loved, enough so that we stayed an extra night, and hope to go back one day. We walked and explored - visiting shops, markets and restaurants.
