Title: Daytrip and lunch at Ile Fourchue

Leaving St Barts after breakfast we made it in time for a morning walk and lunchstop at Ile Fourchue, right in between St Barts and St Maarten. This little island is part of St Barts. For a long time, the island was left to the goats. They ate all the vegetation, including the cactuses, causing huge damage. Eventually they ate themselves out of home and the population crashed. The few survivors were removed. Eight years later, vegetation has grown back again.

Before arriving in St Maarten we made sure to get rid of the very last banana on our ”banana tree” we got from Jason in Dominica!
