Martinique August and September 2017
18 September 2017
A view from our balcony
Today we sit under deck in rainy weather, safely tied up in the shipyard in Le Marin. Everything is prepared and secured before the hurricane Maria will strike sometime during this evening. The center will pass well north of us, but it still could become rough. Anyway, we are quite confident.
We arrived in Martinique late July and decided to stay in a small studio hotel in St Luce the first week while cleaning and tidying Temerity. Unfortunately we didn´t have much time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings as we worked from morning until evening. We just kept awake to enjoy a dinner on the balcony before going to bed. At least we had some entertainment while working on deck. It was time for the yearly Tour des Yoles Rondes de la Martinique. People were partying and it was quite spectacular when they arrived in Le Marin after one of the legs.
