Martinique Sud, and a Sample of our Daily Life aboard Katahdin

Today is February 21st. We left St. Pierre on the 8th and meandered our way down Martinique’s west coast to St. Anne at the southeast tip of the island. Along the way we overnighted in 3 anses (anse is a Creole word for bay), with decent snorkeling and hiking, 2 nights in the yachting center for [...]

Dominica, What a Beautiful Island

We may be in St. Pierre on Martinique right now but our thoughts keep going back to Dominica. And to think that we had considered bypassing this island to get to more "civilized" places. Fools we were but are not now.

Guadeloupe, Again

Loving Luperon!

10 March 2012 | Captain Steve's in Luperon
Cathy/quite warm
This is only the second time in a week that we've been connected online, and we're connected in an open air restaurant here in Luperon on the mid-north coast of the Dominican Republic. Today will be the only day since we arrived on Tuesday at 7 am that we are not leaving the town as we've been gone every day for various activities. We've watched how coffee is made here, even working a 3 foot mortar and pestle to crush the beans. We've slid down or jumped into a string of 7 waterfalls. We've had a wonderful local guide, Rosa Van Sant, the wife of an author of one of the cruisers' guidebooks, to show us the northeastern part of her country. It's been a tremendous time, and we've been sharing it with two other couples we've met here. But tomorrow we'll head on an overnight to the Bahamas. Don't know when we'll have Internet again for another post, but we will when we can.

The Grenadines are a group of tiny to small islands just south of St Vincent and just north of Grenada. With a few exceptions they are wonderfully welcoming and quite beautiful, though, because there has been a consistent drought throughout the past 10 or so months, there's not much greenery.

On the way to our current anchorage at St. Anne at the bottom of Martinique we visited 3 other delightful bays along the way. We've been doing our usual hiking and swimming activities, but this blog also reveals what a "typical" day for us is like.

During our first visit to St. Pierre we didn't go far afield. This time we did and have a new appreciation for this area.

We had a fabulous time on this island, one of the poorest in the Caribbean. It has been blessed with fantastic beauty and we did our best to take it all in.

The photos are from two distinctive and well-known locations on this island. First, from the Jacques Cousteau underwater preserve at Isles des Pigeons on the west coast, and then from the hike up to the tallest mountain on the island, La Soufriere, a still semi-active volcano at almost a mile height.

These were our last stops in the Virgin Islands where we spent a whole month. It's a great place, and lots of people know that as there are lots of other sailors such as ourselves.
