It looks like I will be here through the weekend. See, this is France and no one in France works on the weekend. That includes the gas station (where I had hoped to purchase diesel for the boat), the sail maker (if I can identify one, the grocery stores etc. I have posted a link above so that you can get a nice look at what is a very quaint and pretty place.
As Dr. Pangloss taught Candide "all is for the best in this best of all possible worlds." ("Tout est pour le mieux dans le meilleur des mondes" in honor of St. Pierre) Amazing that I remember this as I had to read Candide in engineering school in 1965. I guess some advice is so good that it just sticks. Of course Voltaire was writing satire and all sorts of terrible things happen to our poor protagonist Candide. It is sort of like the way I am feeling today.
Anyway, I have internet and the card reader arrived so I can spend some time uploading pictures for everyone to enjoy. I will also get around to posting new port guides on the web site of the Seven Seas Cruising Association.
