Rain in Martinique

Today's forecast for Martinique looks like this:
070-080@22g30, squalls with 5-8k enhanced wind! Seas 10'/8secENE-E.
Translation for all non sailors: this means we really have a sh... weather here right now! A lot of rain, even more wind and high seas. Thanks god there is only some wind chop in our anchorage and so far it is not rolly (fingers crossed!). As there is only rain with a squall we can still get to shore dry by dinghy - we just have to get the timing right.
As this weather will linger for the next couple of days we decided to rent a car. Firstly to get off the boat and secondly to explore the island a bit. Let's hope we'll find some sun...

From paradise with love
