We had a good drive around St. Maarten today and the damage from Hurricane Irma is still very evident. Most of the cars have damage to them and it’s not from the driving abilities of the locals. There are shattered cars lining the roads, hotels and houses with no roofs and boats scattered along the road near the lagoon. It’s going to take a long time before this place is recovered, and there’s not guarantee that it won’t happen again in a few months time.
One good thing is that the local Carrefour supermarket on the French side is packed with a wondrous selection of food. We spent a very happy hour and a half stocking up for the coming week. Willo was hanging around the cheese section for most of that time.
