The bricks in the famous 99 steps (which is actually 103 steps – a little girl counted them as we walked down the steps) were brought as ballasts in the holds of the ships.

We took the water taxi from Soufriere to Anse Chastanet. The official water taxi was charging $15 U.S. each for the five minute boat ride. We walked to the base of the hill and grabbed a local water taxi for $5 U.S. each. The dock for this local water taxi is challenging. I almost ended up in the water.

The upward hill to Anse Chastanet was very steep yet short. The upward hill from Anse Chastanet was less steep yet long. We decided to take the water taxi to Anse Chastanet and walk back. The distance is a little over 2 miles from town and took us 40 minutes. The road was very rough. It rained so portions of the road were washed out.
