The difference between French & Anglais

22 March 2010 | Marina Ft. Louis
Karen
Had one of Anchorages Charter boats come in opposite us saturday night about 5. There was no dock hand to assist so they could not catch the mid ship mooring ball I told you all about. We stood by to catch their bow lines, and then they had two of the ladies fending off for a bit until the dockhand came by to secure their aft lines. We talked with them briefly, and let them borrow our Marina access card, since they were going out to dinner and there is NO access to the marina (in or out) without a card. They invited us for a drink before dinner 7pm. However we had already eaten dinner at 5:00pm -While the French did not leave for dinner until after 8pm! So we missed that opportunity, but they graciously gave us their leftover liquor, some lovely wine, a nearly full bottle of scotch, and cane sugar syrup, one of 3 ingredients in the local drink...Ti'Punch, which is 1 part rum, 3 parts cane syrup and lemon or lime. An acquired taste..but hey 'when in Rome'.

Sunday we played tourist and took a walk up to Fort Louis that guards Marigot Bay. The fort was established by the French in the early 1700's. A bit of a steep climb, thru a set of stairs just to the south of the gendarmerie station, but the view...spectacular! Amazing turquoise waters, plus a view of Simpson Bay just inside. Then lunch at a local café and back to the boat.
I am attempting to learn some French, however while loading my language tapes I was pleasantly interrupted by Louise Skype-ing me! Hurray...nothing made me happier than our 38 minute call! A lazy Sunday now...the language tapes will need to wait for another day.

While we brought at least a dozen DVD's for evening viewing, we haven't used one yet as we spend most evenings camped out on the trampoline star watching. Two nights ago we saw our first satellites, three of them (yes Em....we did see them!) and just one last night. However the GPS confirms that there are several up there, even though we do not see them!
