The wind direction on Wednesday looks like the best we are going to get for about ten days so we are off to Martinique and hope to make Cul de Sac du Marin in a single tack.

Took Judy over to Jambe de Bois bar on Pidgeon Island and we had a look at Josset Leigh's ruined house. She lived on the island on and off for 40 years. She was quite the entertainer and her parties legendary. During WWII she ceded her deed to the island to the British, but it was restored to her after. Later, she gave the land to the St. Lucians and retained only her house on the point. She left St. Lucia in 1976 and most of her house was destroyed by the last hurricane to hit the island in 1980.

We watched the sunset from her patio, if I listened really hard I thought maybe the party was still going.
