King of the Carnival 'Valval'

Valval reduced to ashes

Valval almost reduced to ashes

Gwada certainly know how to party – it’s been non-stop carnival for a week culminating in Wednesday night’s amazing funeral pyre when the Carnival King, Valval, was raised to the ground as a signal that Lent had begun and all the partying and feasting had ended.   We are now assured that all will be quiet in Guadeloupe for the next 6 weeks.   It will certainly be quiet on Ocean Rainbow as, after a week of activity and some sailing, James has departed for UK leaving Claire back at anchor off Ilet à Cochons to look after hearth and home for the next two weeks!
