Iles des Saintes

After clearing into Guadeloupe in a cafe next to the waterfront, I had a look around town.
It was crowded with tourists who had caught one of the many ferries over from the mainland.
The church is in the center of town with a huge cross on the hillside behind it.
A stiff walk will bring you to historical Fort Napoleon overlooking the harbor.
The nice sandy beach had a lot of boats anchored close to shore.
Right now I am getting my boat ready to sail up the western side of Guadeloupe to a place called Pigeon Island made famous by Jacques Cousteau.
