St Barth 11th to 14th of February

Fri 10 Mar 2006 14:33
A 25 mile sail to the St Tropez of the Caribbean!  The rich, the beautiful, every exclusive shop you can think of, and Chris and Jo on Lazy Dawn!!!  We opted to stay out of the harbour full of megayachts (including 200ft motoryachts!!) and took a mooring outside.
'Titan' one of the many beautiful boats in St Barths
Our anchorage - the rich and famous were inside the harbour!
We ate and drank in fantastic restaurants and bars, but avoided the temptation of stocking up on exclusive wines and champagnes! ( well we did buy a few bottles )
We hired a bright yellow Jeep Wrangler and visited and snorkelled on as many of the beaches as we could.  Private beaches, rugged beaches, turtle beaches and a nudist beach! (Don't worry mum we haven't taken on that hobby, it was by accident!)
Our Jeep!!!!
We chanced upon 'Eden Rock' an exclusive beach side restaurant, full of 'beautiful people'. We blended in as best we could, as best you can when you have just come off the beach!

Another glorious beach
The end of a good day touring the beaches of St Barths - drinks as the sun set!
Thanks Tom and Rowena who had recommended La Scala, a trendy bar and restaurant where we lounged on sofas drinking happy hour cocktails........ ( shame it was a gay bar!!! )
St Barths - A place to see and be seen!!
