Race With The Devil - Judas Priest

The third and final Reason to be Cheerful in Kourou was a visit to Iles du Salut, including the infamous Devil's Island of Papillion fame. Unfortunately this wretched Google Blog Site is playing up yet again and there is neither the time or the will to sort out the jumble of today's photographs. It is after all more a pictorial than anything, just to give the reader the idea of what the day was all about.

Opposing Waves
It wasn't the Islands that were separating the waves here.
No, the rollers were coming in from great distance across both
