Au revoir Martinique!
26 March 2011 | St Lucia
Blimey! We didn't expect to be in Martinique for so long but it was so lovely to spend it with Samba and Eol and we shall certainly miss them now we have gone South. Of course they are all to blame for the fact that we are majorly behind for getting to Panama! But, today we left Martinique (and two packages there - may have to get ferry back for them LOL) and have arrived in St Lucia. A lovely beam reach all the way down, with a visit from a couple of dolphins. We knew we would arrive after sunset but Rodney bay seemed quite simple. On the way down, Mia and Lochy were introduced to every single scout and guide camp song that Mark and I could remember from our youth - lucky kids!!! We crept into Rodney bay, finding the anchorage and putting down lots of anchor chain, just in case!! I tihnk we have missed Steve Manning from Jersey by two days, but maybe we will catch up on the way down to Grenada. Lochy fell asleep at about 5pm and although we have tried really hard, we couldn't wake him up for his dinner. Looks like an early morning ahead. Good-oh!!
