We sailed past The Pitons and on to Marigot Bay in St Lucia.

Marigot Bay had the best Indian food restaurant we’ve ever eaten.

After a few days in Marigot we left for Martinique. I’d been looking forward to Martinique since we sailed past in May and it didn’t disappoint. We anchored at St Anne’s and had spectacular sunset views every night.

Our next stop in Martinique was St Pierre. Mt Pele looms in the distance as a reminder that as beautiful as it is here Mother Nature can throw a wicked curve ball.

At the turn of the last century, St Pierre was the Paris of the Caribbean. In 1902 Mt Pele erupted and destroyed the city and all but two of its 30000 residents. The only two survivors were a criminal in a jail cell and a cobbler.

From St Pierre Martiniqu we sailed to Dominica. This was on of very few stops we made on our dash down to Grenada. We loved it and felt that we hadn’t seen enough of it.

After Les Saints we traveled halfway up the west coast of Guadaloupe to a Jacque Cousteau Haritage Park at Pigeon Island to meet our friend John and Marcia on S/v Remora.
