Caroline & Jeff March 2018 trip

We often come this time of year on one of our two or three annual trips to St Barts.  The island was gorgeous as usual.

Even though our maintenance staff is great I still look forward to touching up little things. Here replacing the hand deck shower that we and Guests use to was sandy feet from the beach below before entering the villa.

First "toes in the sand" after breakfast to check one of our favorite beaches.

Evenings we walked the harbor and dined nearby, beautiful sailboats added to the scene.

We stopped by for lunch at one our favorite spots at a hotel on the next beach over from Flamands which was just re-opening from renovation.

Our daughter Heidi joined us mid trip and we spent a nice afternoon over on St Jean where we lounged, had lunch and Heidi took a paddleboard out past the reefs.

Out to see the sailboats, we took a day trip on a beautiful Catamarran.  Lunch, watching the boats, swimming, good wine and music.

Watching the other sailing yachts up close is always a thrill.

We spent most of the trip on a regular routine.....breakfast (sometimes lunch) at the villa, beaches out for beautiful dining in the evenings.  Do we ever get tired of returning to the place?  No way
