We entered Fort-de-France, the capital of Martinique for a new fuel tank to be built.
As we approached the island, Marie raised the French courtesy flag to the starboard spreaders. (Les had a full set of signal flags aboard). We loved Martinique, especially the meals we had ashore. My, those French sure have a way with food…and wine, wow!
It rained almost every day, so Les and I played a lot of chess. We were evenly matched, which made for excellent games.
