St Anne to Fort de France Bay

Following pics are on the way from Sainte Anne to Fort de France Bay, The rock is called Diamond Rock and when the French and English were at odds here, the royal navy plonked 20 men and some ships cannons on it and for 17 months the english seamen caused havoc with French shipping passing on thier way to Fort de France, so much so the Royal Navy raised the status of the rock to a ship of the line, HMS Diamond Rock, think its the only rock to be called a ship!
so 1= Diamond rock in the distance, 2=As I passed by real close, how did they do that, 3 & 4= 2 views of Fort de France
