26-7-16 Les Saintes -Baie de-Terre-de-Haut and Sugar Loaf Bay (Pain de Sucre)
After a lazy Sunday spent snorkelling on the ferry wreck below our mooring & a bit of stowage admin, I used the infamous Halliden flatbread recipe with a twist to create lunch paninis for everyone, and shepherds pie was on the dinner menu – who would think we were in 30 degrees??!
We woke early to fill with water at the ferry dock (needed to be done by 0800). Overnight had seen what looked like squid attack!! A dead small squid had landed on the foredeck – inking our white hull & there was black ink on the port side too!!
Best A level French was used to locate the boulangerie after a climb to dump the rubbish which meant hot croissants & pain au choc for breakfast.
We motored round the corner to Sugar Loaf bay. A beautiful spot with a few mooring buoys, a very small public beach & wonderful snorkelling. A few rain showers didn’t spoil the day and whilst everyone was snorkelling the small coral bed, I tried my hand at making pastry & a tasty chicken pie whilst watching the sunset.
Bed has usually been calling about 8.30-9pm for everyone – surprising how doing not a lot saps the energy 💜💜
