Read about The Saintes, Dominica, Martinique, and St. Lucia in our May Letter Home.  Following are the pictures of these wonderful places.

Īles des Saintes

We loved The Saintes islands near Guadeloupe.  Absolutely charming!


In Dominica, we hiked to the Boiling Lake.  It took 6 hours round trip, and it was very difficult!  These pictures will take you on the hike with us.

Two days later, we took a short hike to Trafalgar Falls.  Pancho brought along his baby son to begin his training as a tour guide. 

Linda slipped on a rock and fell in the water!  We didn't have on swimsuits, so she spent the afternoon in wet clothes.


We experienced a lot of different flavors of Martinique, from big city, to tourist town, to quaint village, to remote anchorage.

St. Lucia

We met Jerry and Teri in Rodney Bay, St. Lucia.  They just bought this luxurious 88 foot sailboat and flew in 3 days ago to pick her up.  They will sail her through the Panama Canal and up to their home in Oregon.  The vessel came with a crew of 4 to help them make the trip!  We got a tour of the interior and it is amazing.

We visited Soufriere, St. Lucia on a holiday weekend.  There was music everywhere and dancing in the streets.  Lots of kids were jumping off the dock and swimming around the party boats that came and went.
We took a tour in St. Lucia and got to see many beautiful and interesting places in one day.
We departed St. Lucia at 5:30 a.m. as the sun was rising over the Pitons.  Arrived in Bequia that afternoon.  I will post pictures of Bequia in next month's update.
