After the usual battle of trying to get connected and topping up the phone, we lift the anchor and head south, just as Stella appears in Dinghy. We exchange experiences briefly and head off to suggested lunchtime location of Anse Noir. . . . A fabulous little bay south of Fort de France, the capital of Martinique.
There are only two other yachts in the bay so finding a spot to anchor isn't too difficult despite the roll, As soon as the boat is secure e don mask and snorkel and head off to the 'wall' Stella had warned us that this was a David Attenborough experience and they wern't wrong. We have never seen so many fish in our lives, Millions wafted in clouds all around us , above ,below ,totally surrounded. On the way back to the boat we met another turtle, just bobbing up and down. . . . . .
After taking breath we headed round the corner to Grande Anse D'Arlet for the night.
This is a lovely wide sandy bay, the water is super blue and clear and their is a great internet spot! The whole atmosphere is very French. . rather than Caribbean.
