Gwad Loop or Gwad Loop Aye

Posted in Memoirs, Photo Journeys

I have always thought that Guadeloupe was pronounced with a “loop ay” sound at the end, but down here they actually just say the last part “loop”. Actually if you were to ask me before this cruise where on the globe that Guadeloupe even was at, I would have been at a loss for an answer. You will notice in todays photo snippits that I did not post a breakfast pic since right at breakfast time for me this morning (about 8AM) a sudden rain blew threw and I ate inside the Veranda Restaurant instead of outside. But it did blow by quickly and I was on the deck of the boat enjoying the slow cruise into the harbor for a noon arrival. This island was the most indigenous as far as shopping goes, than all the ones before. The shops were filled with a lot of tie-died stuff and crafts made by the residents. And most of them didn’t even take U.S. dollars, but of course credit cards were ok. Since we got there right at noon, the place was pretty well closed up till 2:30 or 3, as for they take lunch break from noon to 3… yes the whole island does except for a few eateries....
