My flight from Miami yesterday arrived safely and without incident. (To be honest I was surprised, shocked is a better word, that on a four-hour international flight, American Airlines charges $25.00 for the first checked bag and charges for food!)
Captain Bill met me at the Hewanorra Airport at Vieux Fort and we drove for about two hours to Rodney Bay Marina where I boarded his boat, the SV Cajucito. After Bill provided a brief orientation to the yacht accommodations, we enjoyed a delicious Italian dinner at Elena’s Café at the marina.
Today we took a long drive through the mountains and down to a major attraction on the island: The Pitons: Gros Piton and Petit Piton. In French, “piton” is an alternate word for “peak.”
