En Route from Rodney Bay, St Lucia to Le Marin, Martinique
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
We left Rodney Bay at ten and soon in big seas watching Nimue enjoy the surf
 
 
 
 
 
Nimue bearing away from Beez to find better wind
 
 
 
 
Very hard to take a photo of water with any 3D effect........
 
 
 
 
 
........ But an idea of how the waves came at our starboard side, and, the darkening water meaning just one thing
 
 
 
 
 
From seeing Nimue above left at a good distance to seeing nothing in the first squall. We went from Rita six to Rita nine
 
 
 
 
 
A little clearer to see Diamond Rock off at five miles off
 
 
 
 
Good enough weather for the flag changing
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Entering the bay to Le Marin via a well buoyed path
 
 
 
 
 
Quite trendy on the holiday / beach side of the bay
 
 
 
 
Nimue heading to the replica of the Golden Hind
 
 
 
 
Looking around to settle at anchor
 
 
 
 
 
ALL IN ALL A SURPRISE AT THE SHEER SIZE OF THE PLACE
                    A CRACKING SAIL GROMMIT
