Exploring around St Anne
Date 1800 – 21 February 2011
In this part of the world and being at anchor so there is a decided reluctance to get bicycles ashore, even of we wished to cycle up the near vertical hills, exploring means walking.
The first expedition was neatly nearly sidelined by retail therapy, St Anne having a good selection of boutique type shops, however we did make it up the very steep zigzag path, behind the church, lined with the station so of the cross, to the chapel at the summit.
A longer walk took us west towards the Club Med site that overlooks the approach to Le Marin. This is a very popular beach with local families and looks out over the anchorage.
Monday was more serious and we headed east on a footpath that followed
the coast towards the south east corner of
It is very beautiful with gorgeous beaches
And views back up the coast towards Diamond Rock.
The return was by road past the salt lakes that give the bay its name.
In all about 7 miles – time to get back to sailing!
