Just back this week from a fabulous trip to our beautiful island.
The island is in perfect shape and our favorite places are up and running.
Here are a few pics from our trip, first morning coffee on the terrace…contemplating the views with her morning coffee.
Met friends at a nice little place on Flamands Beach——LaLangooste for lunch.
An old, casual favorite down the harbor in Gustavia . It’s been updated with a nicer menu than before.
We had a beautiful afternoon at the Hotel Le Barthelemy in Grand Cul de Sac. Nice lunch in the sand and hanging out at the pool afterward., there is a spa and watersports available there as well.
Another favorite for lunch, Santa Fe restaurant with gorgeous ocean views and perhaps the best fish I had this trip.
We had lunch here in the Hotel Villa Marie near the villa. Gorgeous dining room and this pool to use afterward, towels included.
We met our villa manager on the left, Diana for a delightful lunch on St Jean Beach with our daughter Heidi (she LOVES St Barts) who flew in to spend the 2nd half of the trip with us.
The first afternoon it rained so the ladies spent the afternoon shopping in St Jean
Mornings we’re out walking the beach…here at beautiful Saline.
This beach is wild and lovely.
We spent the entire afternoon over at Hotel Manapany on Anse de Cayes, the next bay over from Flamands. Our friend and general manager, Franck had his staff take excellent care of us.
Heidi, Caroline and I all enjoyed spa treatments in the rooms with the ocean waves in the background.
We swam the pool on the ocean, napped, and watched the sailboats off the shore….a perfect afternoon. This photo of a pair of very relaxed ladies after the spa.
We made it a point to visit one of our favorites for dinner.
Last afternoon we did the beach and had a nice lunch and drinks at Nikki Beach on St Jean.
Our last morning as usual we walked “our” beautiful beach at Flamands. We checked in on the Hotel Cheval Blanc which was being completely renovated and opening the next week for the season.
Things worked out. We were on Tradewind via Puerto Rico and Heidi was on Winair through St Maarten and our flights both departed at 230 so we had time for last long and lovely lunch over on Shell Beach at Shellona which was excellent. A great trip!
