A trip though the shopping mall reminded me of the skinny French girls! The clothes were a little too chic and trendy for me. Dennis found a great pair of surfing trunks – or whatever they call them these days! He will be so stylish!
One of our favorite finds is the French patisserie, La Boulangerie Parisienne, and its French baguettes and croissants. Yumm! “A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and thou …” We had a wonderful dinner at a French restaurant on the dock. What is it about eating outside under a starlit night along the water! It makes a gal drink too much wine! Then climb into a dinghy?
Internet on board the boat has been non-existent here. Apparently the huge yachts and all of their equipment create such interference that the signals do not travel into the bays or lagoon. It is even advised that if you subscribe to the local service and pay that you may not get a connection. It is easier – although inconvenient – to go ashore and take the computer in a water-proof bag. Once again having a virtual office is more challenging that we had envisioned! We did find McDonald’s on the Dutch side – not for the food, but for the Internet connection! Thank you, Mickey D’s!
