We might have a favorite new anchorage after spending 5 delightful, peaceful days in the French islands known as The Saintes. The first little island we stayed at was Ilet a Cabrit, uninhabited except for wild goats and roosters, hens with their chicks running about. We think the name means Goat Island??? We hiked up to Fort Josephine, ruins of a French fort built in the late 1700's, and now occupied by the goats! We then visited the main island, Terre den Haut, and hiked up to visit the magnificently restored Fort Napoleon, built in 1867, with a commanding view of the town and harbor. We were very impressed with the extensive collections in the museum housed in the fort.
