After having lunch with Luois and Charlotte we met with Christian and Marie-Laure in town to play music.

Our friends invited us to Ti kaz la, our favorite restaurant in town for lunch.

During lunch a fisherman came to the beach with a little plastic dinghy full of fish, his catch of the day. I was sent in mission to buy one.

We split up the fish and the cost, but everybody took turns to have his picture done with the beautiful Mahi-mahi.
|Music and fish what a good combo|

Jim attracted a lot of pelicans and tourist with cameras by cleaning the fish on the beach, it was a hard task. Not very comfortable place, but less mess than cleaning it on the boat.

Another night on the park playing music with Cocotier, a popular character in town, a cruiser and Christian, little by little the place filled up with people listening to the improvised band. I was very shy, but at the end I joined them just to loosen a little bit.

We were definitely leaving that morning, but we woke up counting the hours and calculating how much longer we could stay and still make it in time to St. Martin. Unfortunately our friends were waiting since early to say good bye. We just got in the dinghy, offered a serenade and invited them over for pancakes.

Then we went to town to visit Louis and Charlotte, but we couldn't resist to buy some bbq chicken from Pollo, and some fresh fish from the fish market.

Louis loves to entertain Jim, hi showed him his work on the roof and then, they got very involved into making sugar cane juice.

It took us a week to finally go. It felt like it was time, but we had such a good time. This place has it all, the people, the water, the music, the food. It is a magic place, everybody says that about it.
