This is what the locals call it, sell by the lb
We are at the Deux Piton on a mooring. The marine ranger assigned us the mooring yesterday. The charge is 40 EC for 48 hours. This morning we went to Soufriere by dinghy, in open water, only us would do such thing, eh?
We had to go check in with customs and immigration. Customs is on a corner as you come off the dinghy dock. They do all the paper work by hand. The charge was 25 EC. From there we walked to the police station to do immigration. No charge here, and we even got our passports stamped. But that's another story...
Then we walked up 2 blocks to the grocery store. From there to the square, where a roman catholic church was in full view and had a children's mass for the parochial school. We thought of St. Bonaventure.
Then walked down to the water, where Pete was filling up the gas can for the Honda generator.
I bought a couple of necklaces, local made out of I don't remember...CRS?
The dock guy expected a tip so I gave him a 5 EC. I think he expected more. Oh well.
