Morning in Saint Pierre
Day two started with another road trip, this time to the southwestern part of the island to a place called Saint Pierre. The race package pick-up was happening here in the park in front of the old town hall. It took about an hour and a half to progress through the long line-ups of racers. It was a beautiful day though with blue skies, warm sun, and a nice breeze from the ocean.
After I got my race jersey and bag of freebies it was time for some lunch. Louis has the week off school and Marie Pierre had taken work holidays so we were able to make the trips together and they could take me around to these places on the island, which I really appreciated. Sébastien was busy working during the week but would be able to join us on the weekend. For lunch we went to a place on the waterfront. I tried "un filet dorade coryphène avec sauce vanille" a fillet of fish with vanilla sauce. I had never had vanilla with fish before, but it was an interesting taste and I liked it.
