This five-master was anchored in the harbor off Le Bourg. NOTE: this photo is geotagged, but not others on Les Saintes. The island is so small that trying to locate the various photos without a GPS has not proved worthwhile.
Our first day on Les Saintes comes to an end -- the view from our Auberge.
The woman on the right is one of the many able workers at the Auberge des Petites Saintes. The woman on the left is one of the many able guests of the Auberge.
On the laptop at the Auberge. Getting our photos transferred to the fixed disk then to CD at the Auberge des Petites Saintes was pleasant.
This hellraiser is outside La Saladerie on the road down from the old fort.

The path to the Pain de Sucre beach. It's a struggle in places due to wash outs from rain, but it's worth the small effort.
