Definitely *not* your average day on the beach... The visting French Navy warship Dumont d'Urville conducts a beaching exercise in Palmiste, Grenada.

The Dumont d'Urville has certified beach landing sites throughout the Caribbean for delivery of humanitarian supplies in the event of a natural disaster that renders commercial ports inoperable.

After several underwater surveys, Palmiste was selected for the test exercise - part of which includes moving vehicles from the ship to the shore where there is immediate road access.
