Le Marin to Fort de France, Martinique
 
 
 
 
 
 
We up anchored at ten thirty on a beautiful morning
 
 
 
 
The locals went screaming past us, bailing out water as they went
 
 
 
 
A quick wave to us, a change of tack and off they scooted
 
 
 
 
 
 
We have always sailed past Diamond Rock, today we actually went in between it and the coast
 
 
 
 
The weather closing in, made for some interesting wind and current
 
 
 
 
Fort de France with rain, rain and yet more rain
 
 
 
 
Across the bay
 
 
 
 
By the time we looked back the rain was really falling on the city
 
 
 
 
Nimue faithfully behind with a chum.
 
 
 
 
 
 
To our right looking toward Tros Islet - pretty clear
 
 
 
 
Safely to anchor under the fort as usual at three, twenty two very wet miles later
 
 
 
 
A little weather window to enjoy the sights - before even more rain
 
 
 
 
 
ALL IN ALL HAPPY BUT SOGGY
                     AT LEAST IT'S WARM
                     HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A BROLLY LOOK SO SCARY
                     BEAR HAS - RUN BEAR - RUN
