Fort Louis Merigot

Today Laura and I took the little boys to hike up Fort Louis on the French side in Merigot. We have been to Fort Amsterdam on the Dutch side, and I must say that I like Fort Louis better. It had levels of cannons and then a hill at the top with a flag. It was really cool and the little boys had a ball walking around and climbing on the rocks.

The post about the fort said that it was unfinished because it was always being raided and burned by pirates. Makes me think about "Pirates of the Caribbean." Some days living on this island you can experience a little taste of what it was like to live back then. This afternoon was one of those times.

Here is Tyson and I by one of the lower level cannons. Look how pretty Merigot is with all the boats. AH!!! Love the scenery.

Here is Tyson and Peyton on another cannon. Cute little boys!
