We arrived at St. Barths around 8:00 am and anchored out in the harbor. St. Barths is a wealthy island and some of the most spectacular and expensive ships come here. Here is our sister ship, the Wind Surf which was also in the harbor. Anchored a short distance from the Wind Spirit was, what is called the most expensive yacht in the world. It’s simply named Yacht A.
That morning Jan, I and two new friends Romaine and Warren caught one of the first tenders to the dock so we could take a taxi tour of the island. One striking thing was everything seemed clean and in good repair, a contrast to other islands. The taxi ride was spectacular. Here is a map showing where we went that day.
And here is one of the smaller villages with a great view of the surf and a neighboring island.
Off one of these beaches there was a windsurfer doing his thing. It looks like fun but I doubt my old body could take it. After the tour Jan, Romaine and Warren all wanted to go shopping but I decided to return to the ship, get a beer by the pool and read.
This was the night when Jan and I had reservations at ‘Candles’, for a meal on deck with just the two of us. We were hoping for a romantic evening but the ambient light on the ship spoiled the effect somewhat.
The next day was to be our Catamaran/Snorkel excursion.
