13 février 2016 Bonjour à tous, (Désolé impossible d'ajouter des photos) Déjà près de deux mois que nous avons quitté St-Jean pour aller rejoindre notre bateau qui était entreposé à Grenade dans les Antilles du sud. Comme à chaque année sa remise en forme a été faite dans le "Boatyard" sous une chaleur accablante mais tout s'est bien déroulé ou presque... À part notre chaîne d'ancre dont j'avais disposée le printemps dernier (en mer...) À notre arrivée, je vais au magasin afin d'en acheter une nouvelle sauf que aucun magasin dans tout Grenade n'avait le modèle dont j'avais besoin. Nous avons dû en faire venir une des États-Unis et nous l'avons reçue seulement le 6 janvier. Une chance que nous ne voulions pas partir avant les fêtes.... Alors, pas de chaîne d'ancre veut dire que nous ... read more


It's not easy to show on the blog without creating lots of inputs where we've been exactly. So we arrived in Guadeloupe on 17th Feb and spent some time in Marie Galante, a small circular island South of Grande Terre (the East side of the butterfly), going to Point a Pitre (surprisingly similar feel to Southampton water), The Saintes (lovely) before going up to Deshaies to hop to the next island.

Hi Everyone!! Finally iv arrived in Guadeloupe, an amazing island in the middle of the carribean!! Please excuse the typos as im using a european keyboard which is different to those in Aus! Where do I begin, so far iv been to Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York and Puerto Rico! Los Angeles wasnt exactly the glam I expected of Hollywoods "Hub" in the world! The Hostel we stayed at though pretty much made our time there... LA is pretty dirty and dingy to put it mildly...although the people where surprisingly very nice considering the number of tourists wandering around. Hollywood Boulevard where we stayed was always alive at night and looked like a hole by day but admittedly the best entertainment was by far watching the "excentric" characters that seemed to be everywhere in ... read more
