The anchors show our anchorages in Martinique.  St. Pierre, in the northwest, was the capital until Mt. Pelée erupted in 1902, killing all but 1 of the 30,000 inhabitants.  Then at Fort-de-France (today's capital) - a rolly anchorage but close to the services of one of the biggest cities in the eastern Caribbean.  Across the Baie in L'Anse Mitan was one of our favorite anchorages, with a nice beach and pleasant little restaurants.  On the southwest coast we liked the quiet fishing village of Les Anses d'Arlet.  Around on the southeast corner is a cruising hangout (over 1,000 boats) in Ste. Anne and Le Marin.  We also spent many happy days on the west coast, north of Fort de France, just off the village of Schoelcher.  The town is named for the man who convinced the French government to abolish slavery in 1848.
