After our walk around Capesterre we found a dirt road that weaved North along the water to view the Grottos and beach on the Eastern edge of the island. The prevailing winds and waves heavily beat the Eastern Coast, so this is not an area we can get to with Sail Pending, so our only option to explore is by car. The rocks were jaggy and black
but the sand was a beautiful creamy pink color.
Then we drove along the South side of the island, past the airport, to the largest town on the island, Grand Bourg.
After we walked around Grand Bourg we made our way back towards Saint Louis (where Sail Pending is anchored). We passed old ruins and turned around to take a closer look.
The detail showcases the dedication the slaves put into building and operating this plantation and the skills that they had.
As we walked around we were in awe, just thinking about how these stones were hand carved and put together without the use of machines in the 17 century.
