It’s been a long time since we’ve seen water so calm and glass-like. Our passage to St. Martin and now the one we are currently on, has been some of the calmest motor-sailing that we’ve had on our journey south. Of course, the calm water is caused by a lack of wind but since we’re not currently against motoring, trying to make up some ground (water?) heading south, we’ll take it.
Our initial plan yesterday was to head to Antigua and if we were making good time, continue on to Deshaies in Guadeloupe instead. Now that we have reached Deshaies, we have decided to continue on even more down the coast of Guadeloupe to “The Saints.” There we’ll anchor for the night and likely continue on towards Dominica, or again, perhaps further.
Who says we can’t make it to Grenada before the start of H-Season? 🙂

Rebecca’s hand-painted French courtesy flag looks pretty good while under way.
To ease the boredom, we decided to do a set of a different exercise each hour on the hour. Here is Rebecca using our improvised chin-up bar.
Pushups for me. Note: I hate pushups!
Rebecca couldn’t miss her morning TRX workout.
Here she is off the coast of Guadeloupe. The water is calm!
I get very creative when it comes to finding an internet connection!
