|Can you see what we saw in the profile of the rocky outcropping?|
|Full moon rising over Leverick Bay anchorage.|
|I took this at about 3am with the full moon lighting our way.|
|Sunrise was bright in our faces right after 6am|
With the early morning light we were greeted by a number of brown boobies who flew in circles around the boat. We didn't see any dolphins or turtles but we figured the air dances from these birds was pretty similar.
|St. Martin now solidly on the horizon.|
|The port of Marigot.|
We are currently anchored in Marigot harbour. The water is so clear even for a harbour that you can see the ripples in the sand beneath the boat. We have a number of interesting neighbours but there is still very much the evidence of the havoc that Hurricane Gustav wreaked back in October. St, Martin was hit hard with more boats sunk than survived and there is obviously still lots of clean up left to be done. I imagine we will see lots more evidence when we explore Simpson Lagoon later on.
|Pretty turquoise wooden boat right beside us.|
|A French warship anchored out in the harbour, and that is the island of Anguilla in the background.|
|Imagine the force that washed this heavy working boat up on the beach.|
|Not quite the beach-front property the owners had in mind.|
