We drove past several of the places we had been with Mike and Charlotte and at one point decided to ignore a ROAD CLOSED sign to see where that led. Turns out, the road was closed because it ended at the edge of a cliff with nowhere else to go. Google Maps was way off. It wanted us to go somewhere that didn’t exist, the iPad map program had completely different ideas. After about 45 minutes we finally emerged from the hills onto the highway that would take us to UFV (Hewannora) near Vieux Fort.
We arrived at the airport after an hour and a half. Google Maps says it will take 73 minutes and the local cab drivers say it is an hour and a half. So they must take our “lost” route as well.
Got to UVF in plenty of time so Pam decided that we needed to get some groceries. We found a Liquor and Grocery outlet but that turned out to be liquor with an aisle of canned weiners and beans. But the prices were spectacular so our livers will continue to suffer.
|Piton beer, coconut water, baguette... what else could you ask for?|
Might have seen the elusive "Green Flash" after the sundown. We are skeptical.
Brad had worked a 14 hour shift, flown a red-eye and arrived a little bleary so he was perfectly pleased to have an early bedtime, especially after a couple of nightcaps.

|Checking the anchor... no, really checking the anchor|
Today we had a lazy morning and wandered about the marina collecting essentials like baseball caps and tonic. We are fueled, watered, checked out and ready for Martinique in the morning.
