EOD Location: Pigeon Cove Anchorage, Guadeloupe
Miles Traveled: 0
Weather: Partly cloudy, occasional brief showers, breezy (10-15), high-70s
Highlights: Went snorkeling in the Jacques Cousteau underwater park this morning, and found very good quantities of healthy coral, lots of fish (both variety and quantity), with great visibility underwater. Started in the SE side of Pigeon Island, swimming between the channel and around the south side. Saw 3 squid (about 8" long) at the west end, first time ever we've seen them in the wild. Back to the dinghies, then went around to the north side to check out that area, which was much smaller, but had fabulous groupings of boulders and coral heads. Altogether, one of the best snorkeling sites we've seen this year. Back to the boat early afternoon for drinks, naps, and dinner, then spent a very rolly night at anchor as the northern swells came in.
