Isles de Saintes
On our way north we briefly passed through the island group called the Saintes, and we were pleased to be able to spend longer there on the way south.  It is a beautiful area of quiet tropical anchorages served by a pretty village, surrounded by good walks.  One of these took us up to the Fort Napoleon, where we encountered our first iguanas at close quarters!  We also had Easter here; it seems that the UK is the only place on earth that sells Easter eggs so we were very lucky to find ‘kinder eggs’ for the kids but we had anyway painted our own eggs and made decorations for the boat.
