Martinique, French West Indies
It was a beautiful day, today, in Martinique.
We did kayaking through the mangroves. That allowed us to enjoy the weather, get some exercise, and learn a little bit.
Mangroves are salty wetland found in the tropical areas. They are transition zones that protect the coast from ocean aggression as well as protecting animals and fish.
All over the Caribbean human development has raised havoc with mangroves.
The ship prepared a special dinner under the stars for us 26 people who are doing the entire 71 day voyage.
