Transporting the leaking dinghy from Ste Anne to Le Marin
In St Lucia it was great to meet old friends; Truls that goes more than 40 years back, and Myrtle and Harold whom we met during our time in Montreal. In Martinique though, it was as great to get new friends, Monica and Lars. They are originally from the northern part of Norway, but settled in Martinique some three years ago and have found the good life here. It is not difficult to understand why. Martinique is an island with a very beautiful landscape and long white beaches, and of course a very different climate from Northern Norway. But they claim that the people have much of the same mentality as up in the north: friendliness, hospitality and sense of humour. We believe them, and this is exactly how Monica and Lars are themselves!
