Big Trees

Wednesday, Jan 25 Jana & I really enjoy visiting botanical gardens and have by now visited quite a few Caribbean ones. So, for Jana’s birthday, we decided to visit the one in Deshaies. Here are a few photos of the two of us “among the big trees”. We finished our visit by having lunch in…

L’Anse de Rochers

January 27 to February 3 My plans for posting fairly regular blogs got derailed by truly flaky WiFi. Now that I have a working WiFi again, I plan to publish a couple of current posts. Then perhaps I will go back and fill in the blanks. We are now on the South coast of one…

La Rose du Brésil

January 13 – 20, 2017 We are staying for a week on Marie Galante at “La Rose du Brésil”. The place consists of eight or ten little garden apartments, set in a semi-tropical garden with a swimming pool. It is located five minutes drive from Capesterre and one minute less than that from Feuillere beach.…

A Fast Ferry Ride

January 13, 2017 At lunchtime today, we took the “Express des Iles” fast catamaran from Point-à-Pitre (the main town in Guadeloupe) to the much smaller and less developed island of Marie Galante. The ferry was smooth, comfortable and on-time. The ferry made an unscheduled stop, probably in Saint-Louis (but we are not sure) and I…

Opinion varies as to the exact number! Today, we are taking a one-hour fast-ferry ride to the island of Marie Galante, where we…

Bucerias

Bucerias ~ February 7 to 10 I started planning this Mexican vacation early in 2015. I expected that I would have no trouble finding available dates in our “top choices” of places where we wanted to stay. But it turned out to be much more difficult than I expected. Admittedly, we were planning to go…

Roberto’s Bungalows

San Pancho ~ February 2 to 6 “Roberto’s Bungalows” are four apartments … “two up, two down” … housed in a gorgeously landscaped courtyard just a few steps from San Pancho’s one-and-only main street. The apartments are unusual, at least in our experience, because the main room of each apartment is wide open to the…
