Deshaies

Too windy to stop at Pigeon Island so did not see Jaques Cousteau.  Now in Deshaies at N end of Guadaloupe where apparently Death in Paradise was shot.  Beautiful blue sea and sky but very windy. Boat is anchored with all the chain out and the wind generator is whizzing round charging the batteries.   Just visited the impressive Botanic Gardens, parrots and  lorikeets as well as plants, as is usual out here all the things we grow inside as house plants or in greenhouses flourish outside here (e.g. Poinsettia).  Also great view of the bay and the anchorage.  Hope to set off and sail overnight to Antigua tomorrow, so need to stock up with French wine and chees before we go.  Back to British style officialdom after the relaxed French version.
