Stop number five is on the French island of Martinique. We take an early ferry across to the best beach on the island, Anse Mitan, and it is so disappointing. It is so small, the sand is gray and it is virtually on the docks. OK, it is still the Caribbean waters but nothing comparable to the other fantastic beaches we┬┤ve seen so far. Then we take the ferry back and go for a walk around a town that definitely has seen better days. The words depressing and dilapidated rapidly come to mind. We finally try to take a walk to see the historical buildings and again get disappointed by the lack of maintenance of what was, long ago an amazing example of French colonial style. Well, with literally nothing much to see here, we go back to the ship for some much needed air-conditioning as it is 35 degrees outside, and we hope for more beautiful and exciting islands to come, Au revoir!
