Jerk pork tenderloin with baguettes for Christmas dinner, and chocolate croissants for breakfast! We are fully enjoying our first visit to the French Antilles. Deshais is a colorful and bustling little village stretched out along the eastern shore of the anchorage, which is surrounded on three sides by verdant mountains with nice snorkeling along the northern headland. Colin took a year of French in college, but Kathy Parsons’ French for Cruisers has become the family talisman. We take it with us wherever we go, and we are all practicing. Au revoir for now.
