Martinique loomed into view in the early morning and we cruised most of the way down her length. We were headed for the bay in front of the capital Fort de France. We slipped into anchor under the watchful eye of the impressive Fort Saint Louis. It is a little in disrepair, but is still a military base in contrast to a lot of forts across the Caribbean and so we weren't able to do more than admire it from a distance.

We woke up the following morning to the Frenchman delivering our croissants and baguettes at 0630. We ate them, (except for Becca, she left hers out in the rain and was nearly thrown overboard for it) weighed anchor, and were on our way. These islands are all hundreds of feet deep right to the shoreline so we were able to cruise on by at a stones throw from shore. It made our bikini watching much easier which led to a boost in crew morale. Well that and also our second ...
