Christmas Winds Still Kicking…
December 27, 2008
The Cajun and the Pirate had a wonderful Christmas in 2008! We cooked a delicious feast on Christmas eve- steaks and lots of Southern comfort food for sides- mmm! On Christmas Day we drove across the island to Anse Marcel and spent the day at the beach. We used the facilities at the 5-star resort Le Domaine (our friend Sophie works there and she always goes out of her way to make everything perfect). We sipped very good rum punches and mojitos and ate fresh grouper while sunning on the beach. We then made our way over to the pool and had it all to ourselves for the afternoon- tres magnifique! That night, the Pirate watched the Celtics lose to the Lakers, oh well.
On Friday we met some friends (Bill and Amy) who were in town for the day from their cruise ship. We all went to Gallion Beach. The weather was gorgeous, though windy, which was great for the many windsurfers there. We watched them do some really incredible jumps and flips. The beach did get a bit too crowded as there were three cruise ships in town that day, but that meant business for the locals which was much needed. We made the best of it and entertained ourselves with some fantastic people watching opportunities. J The locals came out later and got pretty rowdy, they were all on holiday from work too. Lots of bbq’s, cricket games and loud soca music (Soca is a soul/calypso mix).
Today we are doing boat chores and awaiting DJ’s return. We are getting ready for our departure from our cozy dock, so there is a lot to do to get the boat ready for sailing. Our next report will be from a new fabulous location.. stay tuned to find out where!
