From Petite Anse d'Arlet, we sailed back to St. Anne where we stayed for a few days. On the 8th, we motored into the nearby marina of Le Marin, where we had reserved a place for Sarema. There we spent one and a half extremely sweaty and hectic days putting everything in order in the boat and packing all the thousand things we thought we would need while in Europe. Riitta had gathered in the saloon all the things we were supposed to take with us but, for some reason, Pekka forgot to pack Riitta's winter boots. As a result, she had to flip-flop all the way home in European winter weather. But, we are still married.
We'll fly back to the Caribbean on the 17th of February to meet our Alaskan friends Marion and Marty with whom we are going to explore the islands of Martinique and St. Lucia in more detail, so stay tuned.
