Visiting Mermaids!

Pointe a Pitre 013Guadeloupe 002To put you in the picture, we’d had a run ashore in Pointe a Pitre and found some new wines to try out, so we were quietly ‘tasting’ and deciding which of the 4 bottles merited another visit to the store.  We had a spectacular sky as the backdrop, an idyllic setting for a sundowner, when lo and behold two blond, beautiful mermaids on paddle boards came past the end of our boat.   We hailed them – well it would have been rude to ignore this apparition – and the next thing we knew the Mermaids were on board joining the wine tasting!  Hannah and Krista were just out for a bit of exercise before returning to their duties on board one of the super yachts moored the main harbour – it was lovely to meet them and hear a bit about their lives.  They had a quick guided tour of OR and we may even manage to pop along and have a look around their yacht … it might take slightly longer than their tour of ours!   What a lovely Saturday evening in Guadeloupe.

    Congratulations on becoming grandparents, very exciting for you both and a bloody good excuse for a drink to toast the new arrival.. Now are you sure you trust the Captain with Not one but TWO mermaids in the vicinity, he may have just learned how to cook but I bet he forgets double quick when the Memsahib is away! Lots of love S & Tig
