From Barbuda, we made a quick overnight stop in St. Barts and then arrived here late Monday and are now happily settled in the marina in Anse Marcel which we plan to use as our base for the next year or so. Anse Marcel is an small cove on the northeast part of the island. It's a bit isolated, but it's a good hurricane hole, which makes our insurance company happy and we have a lovely spot on the outskirts of the marina facing mangroves and the green hills which surround the cove. After being at sea for so long, we cannot get enough of the color green.
St. Martin is an island we know fairly well as tourists, but we’re looking forward to exploring her as quasi-residents. Before we can do that properly, we have our daughters coming for a visit tomorrow and my brother and sister-in-law coming in shortly after they leave -hence the brevity of this post and the reason why I won’t be writing much during the next 10 days. But in the words of the immortal Bob Marley, “Don’t worry, be happy” and I’ll be back soon.
