Beauty and charm abound in Les Saintes, Guadeloupe

Beauté et le charme abondent dans les Saintes, Guadeloupe ...

Sailing the west coast of Guadeloupe, trolling for dinner ...
Troubadour's "poisson du jour" ... a 14-inch bonito
15 km south of Guadeloupe, the small archipelago of the Saintes,
composed of 9 islands was discovered by Christopher Columbus on
4 November 1493. Terre de Haut is the principal center of
Les Saintes. We moored here for a few nights and 
I couldn't get enough of this beautiful and charming fishing village.
Fisherman's treasures on the beach.
A walk along the beach in Terre de Haut, Les Saintes ...
Brightly painted homes ...
Chris makes friends with one of the locals ...
Serenity ... isn't this what the journey is about?

Street scene, quiet and picturesque
After getting a tip from fellow cruisers, we walked across the island

 to the “Plage de Pompierre” beach ... where we discover
even more natural beauty.
While a walk in town is rich with colorful shops and the aroma of baking bread,
deciphering French restaurant menu's can be tricky - this one says:
breakfast, fresh fruit juice, milk shake, drinks.

The island of Guadeloupe in the distance, touches the clouds
Some views are simply stunning - Terre de Haut, Les Saintes
Carib on ice is nice.

Troubadour visited Terre de Haut, Les Saintes islands part of Guadeloupe, May 2 - May 5, 2012. (And we really want to come back next year!)
