On Porpoise

These buoy birds bid us a fond “Adieu” as
we left the French Caribbean island
of Guadaloupe, headed for Antigua.
Much easier to get a clear photo of
them than the egrets in flight!

Several flocks of white egrets flew past us all too quickly in the dawn light, as we meandered down the River Salee, through the mangroves.

For ten minutes, four of the school of twelve
porpoise played in our bow wake.  We
were stoked!
About ten miles from Guadaloupe, a school of about a dozen porpoise escorted us.

We anchored in English Harbour, Antigua, as it’s one of the country’s customs entry points. 

We enjoyed a stunning sunset from our English Harbour,
Antigua anchorage that night.
