Sugar Wind Mills dot the landscape…
A lovely wild coast.
A little bit of home on the island… (but really just a cottage resort).
Flame Trees of Canada…. or, about as close as we’re going to get to that happening.

A relatively short hop over to Marie Galante takes us to a really lovely big little island (or little big island, I guess). We rented a car and travelled around this island that is big enough to have lots to discover but small enough to be a quiet serene place.
Here’s what we saw of some of the coast.
A big sink hole which is a bit hard to get a picture of without dying.
Not all of the coastline is this rough but I think you’ve probably seen enough beautiful beach pictures. 🙂
Our next stop is the island group of Les Saintes in Guadeloupe. The lovely area that we moored had this wonderfully odd building. A house in the shape of a boat… so, in fact, it is a Boat House. Although I believe it was used as other things it is presently…. and I can’t make this stuff up…. a doctor’s office.
The boys and I climbed the big hill to the fort and this is what we saw. A beautifully restored fort and grounds. Simply amazing.
The view of the surrounding area.
The next and last new country on our adventure is Guadeloupe. We made landfall at a pretty little harbour called Deshaies. After checking, high on the list of priorities was going to the local botanical garden which was quite renowned. It was definitely a positive experience especially for Caroline, even in all the rain that we had.
The harbour town of Deshaies.
Because I’ve given you so many flora pictures, I think I’ll try to highlight the fauna in the gardens.
Okay, one flora picture for good measure.
