We were on the beach (Saline) by noon. We thought it was early, but folks were already leaving the beach. In the parking lot I heard a guy say to his companion, "...beaucoup personnes a quite la plage.", and I piped up,"... le vent et le sable". We had a... Continue reading

We had planned to go to a place near L'Oasis for breakfast (which they advertised), but it really was only a patisserie, no eggs or any other breakfast type fare. Lene got a croissant. We did some shopping at La Grand Marche (surprise, surprise), then sped off to Maya to... Continue reading

Thursday was a day with only one thing on the agenda, a 7:30 dinner at Eddy's in Gustavia. To prepare for such a demanding evening, we just chilled at our place for the day. We thought we would go to Gustavia early and walk around, but the rain was steady... Continue reading

Lene's constant frustration with me is that I'm quite slow in the morning. There just are important things that I have to get done before I can move ahead with my day. Today, however, my day moved forward more rapidly than usual. We went off to an area and beach... Continue reading

We decided today would be the day for us to go to Anse du Grand Colombiar. This beach is only accessible by water or hiking in. Since there was a cloud cover we decided that it would be a perfect day. As we approached the area we were not quite... Continue reading

The full moon was on Tuesday the 11th, and it was spectacular, but the leadup was pretty fantastic as well. The skies have been mostly clear, and any clouds there were only served to enhance the experience. Our deck here faces due east, so both the sun and the moon... Continue reading

Lene wanted to see what the shopping is like on St Barth, the land of billionaires and celebrities. We walked around the Eden Rock shopping area, and it was what it was. It was a pretty area and all, but we did not purchase anything, because we don't need anything,... Continue reading

Next up in our quest to experience all beaches was Saline. It is a naturalist's haven. Topless women can be seen on most, if not all, of St Barth's beaches, but on Saline, some men and women seek total freedom. It's startling at first, because we Americans are so unaccustomed... Continue reading

My prep school French teacher would likely be somewhat pleased to see that I am able to communicate here on St Barts. My pronunciation is very good, but I have to search long and hard for the words. Thank goodness for Google Translate, it is a wonderful resource! There is... Continue reading

Late start so that we could pack more things into Harvey, the RV. For some reason we felt the need to fill every last square inch of storage. �Once full we hit the road. �Harvey drives very nicely. We think he likes the extra weight! �We are now in Harrisburg... Continue reading
