Commerce a la St. Lucia

28 April 2012 | Rodney Bay, St. Lucia
Dennis / Gorgeous, but windy
We are now in St. Lucia, after a textbook perfect sail down from Martinique yesterday. We had 15 - 18 knots of wind mostly on the beam, with moderate 6' seas ... a beautiful sail in much better time than I had planned. The ENE - E Trades are settling in again. I gotta watch out for losing the hat on the way into the lagoon for supplies, etc.., as it's straight into the wind to get there ... but it feels great! Apparently there is some sort of tropical wave brewing to the east, but that's normal for this time of year and shouldn't present any issues for us. So all's still well on the weather front.

As for commerce here in Rodney Bay, it's still going strong, even though there aren't nearly as many boats here as anticipated. I wondered how soon we'd get visited by the local entrepreneurs, and "Gregory" showed up at noon in this incredible rig, loaded down with all kinds of fruits and vegetables and with flags from most of the nations that sail through these waters flying in the wind. I bought only a few mangoes, because Heidi was at the big Saturday market in Castries (the capitol) with Irene getting plenty of produce when he showed up. Hopefully, however, he'll bring the cilantro he promised for tomorrow morning, along with fresh local bread.
