We are John Johnson and Patti Litman and this is the story of our adventure!
July 10, 12, 2010... Fort-de-France, Martinique
A couple of the days we were anchored in Les Trois Ilets we took the 20-minute ferry across the harbor to Fort-de-France (FdF) -- it was nice to be on the water and leave the driving to someone else! FdF is certainly a hopping place. Lots of people in the streets, vendors doing business, market in full swing, street drummers adding a rhythm to the ambience. Great place to sit at a cafe and people watch. The pedestrian-only street of Rue de la Republique is a nice addition to the city. A new mall with a Carrefour supermarket just opened in town, so we also provisioned for the trip ahead. Again, only wish we had more time to get to know the city. We'll just have to come back.
