Guadeloupe again
After an unpleasant 14 hour slog, during which our watermaker pump broke down again, we made Deshaies on Guadeloupe.  This was a pretty bay with turtles swimming around and some pleasant walks ashore.  It was a relief to get back to French bread and croissants etc after the muck which they call bread elsewhere in the Caribbean!  Down the coast of Guadeloupe we stopped briefly to snorkel in the Jacques Cousteau National Park around Pigeon Island, a beautiful area of turquoise water, startling visibility underwater and exceptional marine life in the form of coral and tropical fish.
