    A Pause in Martinique

    A travel blog entry by skdude on Jun 02, 2014

    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.

    The capital city itself was ...

    ... a giant iguana along the shore, but after coming around the corner of the island into some strong winds we spied a sheltered cove where other kayakers had beached their boats and headed to the shallow waters of the sandy beach, lay out under a low hanging tree, and broke out our picnic lunch. Despite the spines of an angry sea urchin that found their way into Matt’s foot, it was the perfect way to spend a Saturday in the Caribbean. On Sunday we had intended to try out some surfing, ...

At the beginning of the 19th century in the Anglo- French wars, the British installed 20 sailors and carried 4 canons to the top. They resisted all attacks for 17 months. It's status was raised to that of a ship and called HMS Diamond Rock. Apparently only defeated when the French purposely shipwrecked caskets of rum there and the sailors got drunk and offered no ...

    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 ...
