Steve’s sister arrived last Monday for Christmas in Martinique with us. She had filled her luggage with lots of spares for us. We hired a car for a couple of days (cheaper than a taxi to the airport) and visited St Pierre ( the town destroyed in 1902 when Mont Pelee erupted), the rather wonderful Balata botanic gardens and the Run distillery at Trois Rivieres. We’ve now moved south to Grande Anse d’Arlet, a lovely holiday bay. We’ve been snorkelling and seen lots of fish, also some turtles.
