    Sint Maarten/Saint-Martin

    January 7, 2019 in Saint Martin ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Ok on this trip I am looking for the idyllic carribean island. Its not here.

    The island is the smallest landmass in the world that is governed by two nations.

    Not much architecturally to look at, no doubt successive hurricanes have destroyed anything of note and it was devastated by the last hurricane.

    We went on a fairly boring tour on which the two Macdonalds and a Burgar King were pointed out to us.

    In describing the difference between the two sides our guide said the dutch side has casinos and the french nude sunbaking.

    I'm told it has some of the best carribean beaches but we didn't see any.

    We did see some gorgeous orange iguanas which apparently the locals eat.

    The tour should have taken us to the beach where the planes fly over really low. We are just shown the airport.

    Arrived back at the ship depressed and wondering if every port town was going to be a dump and the tours as boring as todays.

    Ate alot of ice cream.

    The photos make it look alot better than it is!

    Spontane Inselrundfahrt

    October 29, 2018 in Saint Martin ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Unser Ziel ist es eigentlich ein Taxi nach Margot, der Hauptstadt des französischen Teils zu nehmen und uns dort ein wenig umzusehen. Auf dem Weg zu den Taxis werden wir allerdings von ein paar Briten angesprochen und gefragt, ob wir uns deren Inselrundfahrt anschliessen möchten. Sie suchen noch nach 2 Mitfahrern, da dann nur 25 $ pro Person für gute 3 Stunden Inselrundfahrt zu zahlen sind. Spontan schliessen wir und der Gruppe an und komplettieren sie.

    Schon sind wir unterwegs auf einer Inselrundfahrt.

    Wir fahren einmal im Gegenuhrzeigersinn um die Insel. Von der dänischen Seite geht es zunächst auf die französische Seite und zu einem Beach mit einer kleinen Aussichtsplattform. Saint Martin zeigt sich hier von einer wunderschönen Seite.

    Ein Stück die Straße weiter. Zeigt jemand Leguane, sogenannte Guanas.

    Verlaten villa

    April 22, 2016 in Saint Martin ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Een afgelegen stuk waar ooit een vakantiepark was. Er is een brand geweest in het park en daarna is alles achter gelaten. Hier is nog heel veel terug te vinden van de oorspronkelijke staat. Veel toeristen zoeken deze plaats terug op.Read more

    St. Martin I

    February 26, 2016 in Saint Martin ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    St. Martin was a short downwind leaping sail from St. Barts. En route we passed a curious island, which was mentioned in the guidebook. The island was once lush with green vegetation coating it from coast to coast. Unfortunately the goat population got out of hand and the goats ate the island barren. When it appeared the goats were beginning to starve, the humans intervened and began transporting them off the island. Now, the island is supposed to show signs of green…. But Mike and I could barely see these ‘signs of green’. We suspect there are some sneaky goats still eating their fill.

    Our first landing was on the NW side in Grand Case, which drew us in for the renowned cuisine and carnival Tuesdays. It was a wide but deep harbor and we were both impressed with how flat the anchorage was. From the moment the anchor tugged snugly on the sandy bottom below, I felt at home. Yup, this will do for a week worth of boat work chores. We grabbed ribs and a beer at the closest bar to the dinghy dock (bbq so good it’ll make you cry) and numbered our projects and relaxed, making ourselves at home. We eventually slapped 2 coats of varnish, painted the v-drive, realigned the v-drive, fixed the mizzen boom (again), and genoa sheet block. Carnivale Tuesday finally came our way and the quaint town mainstreet opened up to hundreds of boutiques and food vendors. Music roared from the drum band and whistles while beautiful women wearing elaborate carnival costumes lead the stream of madness. The Heineken Regatta was to take place that week and 20 or so drunken racers made their jovial presence known…. To EVERYONE. We danced to a steeldrum band and drank the local rum punch meeting fellow cruisers left and right. With our fill of Grand Case fun it was time to meet with friends Acedia, Alpha Crucis, & Aggressive in Marigot Bay just 3 miles South.

    St. Martin II

    February 28, 2016 in Saint Martin ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Once we put in our hours/days of work and enjoyed our weight of chocolate almond croissants, we decided it was high time go and see St. Martin! There’s a famous lagoon in St. Martin, one side is French the other Dutch. The Dutch side is far more developed (green & red channel markers!!! what? haven’t seen those since Bermuda) and cater to the yachts (both mega and minor). The French side is shallow and spacious – plenty of room to anchor. On the NW side of the French lagoon resides a bit of a wayward mess; i.e. there’s a plethora of fixer-upers biding there time or on the slow march to becoming a reef down below. We really enjoyed happy hour at Lagoonies, a bar on the Dutch side. In our meanderings we “won” a discounted vacation to a timeshare resort. We just had to listen to a pitch and received a free lunch and drinks and $50 to shop with. I got my St. Martin t-shirt and Mike bought his fill in hot sauce. Everyone was happy except for the sales rep.Read more
