18 January 2012 | Le Marin
We are in Martinique visiting some old favorite spots and exploring new places. This photo was taken from our favorite anchorage in Le Marin. We stayed in Le Marin for a few days and took a hike on the west side of Le Marin with Kathy and John from the boat Oceana. Of course we bought some wine and cheese and other French goodies.
We sailed north to Grand Anse D’Arlet and hiked over to Petit Anse D’Arlet. The hike took about an hour and Hunter, with his well tuned nose for French bakeries, found a bakery and of course we replaced the calories we expended on the hike. We returned to our boats and enjoyed a late lunch ashore to celebrate Kathy’s **th birthday with Ti punch , white wine lunch.
Ti Punch is a local drink made of one part cane syrup and three to four parts rum with lots of lime. You can add water if you wish. Kathy asked for a glass of white wine and the waitress asked “Petit or Grande”. Well, who wants a small glass of wine of your birthday? The Grande glass turned out to be a large bottle. We helped her- that is what friends are for.
