Location: Les Saintes, Guadeloupe
Today the crew of Ocean Star woke to another beautiful Caribbean sunrise over the small hills of the French territory, Les Saintes. We started the day off with an assortment of different off brand Caribbean cereals: apple o’s, sugar flakes, etc. Soon after, it was time to move the ship to a nearby anchoring zone in preparation for our free time onshore. Mid transferring of anchor locations, the crew was surprised with a man overboard drill in which an orange buoy, otherwise known as “Oscar”, was in much need of our assistance. We quickly dropped our dinghy “Irv” to gracefully pluck Oscar from the treacherous waters and away to safety.
Once onshore, everyone headed their own way in search of pastries, escargot and whatever other edible specialties Les Saintes had to offer. The town was bustling with activity as a cruise ship had arrived earlier in the day. Walking through the narrow cobblestoned streets the aroma of freshly, baked baguettes and cooking seafood filled the air. The rest of our time was spent in search of Wi-Fi to find sources for our upcoming oceanography research paper. As the day came to an end, everyone made a last minute trip to the local supermarket and purchased a smorgasbord of biscuits, cookies and soda to feed our snack stomachs for the upcoming week. The day concluded with a hearty meal of white rice and a spicy curry like-dish. Another great day aboard S/Y Ocean Star!
