We are off South to Deshaies Guadeloupe tomorrow as the wind has finally backed a bit to about due East after 10 days of light and variable or SE to S. It will be Sandy's first taste of inter island sailing, possibly with all plain sail, after a few short sails just with the jib up and nothing upwind for 3000 miles but open ocean. . We have had some serious rain recently and days with precious little sun as an area of low pressure hung about near us so it was good to look out and see some blue sky this afternoon with a promise of more to come.
We have enjoyed some quiet days in Indian Creek with only the wildlife to keep us company. Pelicans fishing around us, goats on the hill and even a mongoose on the beach.
Perfect peace in a glorious little protected hidey hole of an anchorage just a mile or two from English harbor as the crow flies. .
