WHERE WE’VE BEEN….WHERE WE’RE GOING…..
FROM BELEM, BRAZIL TO A THOUSAND MILES UP THE AMAZON AND BACK……….. THEN HEADING HOME !
We leave the Amazon and Brazil and head for France’s last outpost in South America, French Guiana and it’s most famous off-shore attraction, Devil’s Island.
From Devil’s Island we’ll be heading into the Caribbean and to Castries, the capital of the island of St. Lucia.
From St. Lucia the plan is to sail to Phillipsburg on the island of St. Martin. St. Martin is actually a divided island, part of which belongs to the Dutch (with Phillipsburg as its capital) and part belonging to the French, with Marigot as its capital. There is no border crossing on the island in order to go back and forth – you just go. The border appears to be more a line on a map than anything else. If you didn’t know the island was divided, the only way you might know is that French is spoken on one side, Dutch on another, English on both.
And following St. Martin, we plan to dock in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA on March 12th, God willing ! We’ll probably be in Flada for a week or so before heading back out West.
It’ll be great to be back in the US of A and plan the trip home back to Arizona !
