On Wednesday, we visited the Fort Napoleon, on Terre de Haut. It has been quite well restored, and has a museum, but the narrative was all in French so we didn’t understand much. The highlight of the visit was probably when the Ranger we met showed us 4 Iguanas hiding the bushes. In the evening, Caroline & Chris (Four Seasons) came aboard and we had a great fun evening when they introduced us to a silly dice game called Perudo. It a good way to spend a squally night with torrential rain.
On Thursday we moved the half mile to Ilet a Cabrit, where we are now moored with ‘Four Seasons’ and ‘Saga’ who turned up as we were moving. Cabrit is a small island, inhabited by hens, goats, hermit crabs, snakes, and clouds of black and white butterflies In the past it has been fortified (Fort Josephine) and used as a prison. We walked to both ends and visited the ruined fort with Thomas and Inge in about and hour.
Phil is taking antibiotics for an ear infection, and didn’t want to go in the water, so Sarah snorkelled along the beach - lovely clear water and the most colourful coral she has seen so far, but she forgot to take her GoPro with her, so no photos. She was also given an introduction to diving by Thomas - only to a couple of meters, but it was a great experience being at eye level with the fish.
The weather has been good since the rain on Wednesday, and we had a fantastic sunset last night
