St Anne Martinique

Our anchorage in St Anne Martinique
Thursday, May 22nd 2014
Today is a holiday on Martinique.  It is the celebration of the end of slavery on Martinique.  FYI - It is celebrated May 27th on Guadeloupe.  We went ashore to find traditional dancing and drumming on the waterfront near the dinghy dock.  It was interesting and fun to watch.

similar formation as square dancing

Some of the dances were complicated

Tom was even able to "sit in" when during one of the breaks several kids were learning to drum and Tom sat down to learn as well.
Next generation drummers

Singing traditional songs -more chants

So many colors in one hedge
Check out the spare tire
