Parade of Sailboats in Marigot Bay, St. Martin

They sit almost entirely still atop a flat expanse of crisp, clear aquamarine – tens, hundreds, seemingly thousands of sailboats scattered about Marigot Bay.

Their flags, a virtual United Nations at sea mirroring the melting pot that is mainland St. Martin, home to people of more than 120 different nationalities.

By night the lights atop their masts equal the twinkling breadth and majesty of the stars above.

A spectacle of beauty no matter what time of day or night you get to see them, the sailboats of Marigot Bay…

Your Monthly Moment of Zen.
