Un-be-liev-a-ble. The word escaped my lips in a similarly stunted fashion upon gazing down at Fond-du-Curé from the ramparts of Fort Napoleon, high atop Mt. Mire in Terre-de-Haut, Guadeloupe. The view of the tiny island’s principal town was just so stunning, so storybook beautiful that I had a hard time accepting that it was real. An impossibly blue harbor dotted with a myriad of sailing vessels, a landscape of rolling hills similarly dotted with pink-red roofs, Dominica peeking out at left along the horizon – it was a scene, for me, straight out of a fantasy. This was fitting, of course, as most everything I got to see and do in Terre-de-Haut was like a dream.
