Saline beach again…
So, we are back from Saint Barth, still jet-lagged, already missing our island, its colors, its people, the sea and the sun. Almost everything…
The “back to reality” journey is, as usual, not super interesting ;-)
It is really hard to leave after having such a nice time with wife and son. No drama but I always feel like I am leaving something behind…
Anyway, I would like to finish to post some pictures from our last days in Saint Barth. Good reminder for me, at least ;-)
Very breezy, but so fantastic, hike at La Pointe around Toiny. A rare wild area on the island. Second time there, again “plein les yeux”!
I will keep the lights and colors of this hike in my head/eyes for a while :-)
The swell has generated quite bug waves yesterday! We had a walk at Flamand beach in the morning, quite impressive. Never seen such kind of waves in the last 6 years…
Then, a visit to the Lorient beach, beautiful colors, lots of families. Really cool.
We had a super nice dinner at the Eden Rock. Always one of the dinners’ highlight on Saint Barth ;-)
Intensive day ;-)
We had another great morning at the Saint Jean Beach. The afternoon was quite cloudy, but hey, that was ok for our skins ;-)
A “simple” evening at the restaurant/take away “Le Petit Bouchon”. I had a cool Beef Carpaccio, with a lot of Parmesan and … French fries!
This evening should one of the “dinner highlight”!
More on that tomorrow.
Colombier Bay is still so marvelous. We were there quite early in the morning and were alone on the beach during 2 hours. Nice experience ;-)
The views during the walk to the Colombier beach are quite fantastic.
Nice evening too at the Pipiri Palace restaurant in Gustavia. As usual there, good atmosphere, good service, nice people, and very good meal.
Yes, we know that it is still snowing at home, again 10cm!
Yesterday was another great “Saint Barth’s” day!
First a great 3-hours stroll at Grand Fond, where we have visited the so-called “baignoires”, i.e. the natural baths created by the ocean erosion.
Then a very good dinner at Maya’s restaurant. Cool and efficient service, very fresh. I had first a Mojito cocktail, then a big salad (mesclun, how do you call it in English?) and a fantastic Tandori (no Roy it wasn’t so much spicy, as you would like it ;-).
Everywhere, a lot of cool known faces, who made us feel at home!
That’s exactly the kind of perfect day which will make us come back here as soon as possible…
Tomorrow should be another stroll to Colombier, with a snorkeling session.
So, it’s snowing at home, -8°C in the morning. Here it’s extremely hot, more a summer weather than a winter one, actually. 31°C during the day, 24°C during the night. We are not so far away from the 40°C between our both “homes”!
It’s very dry and warmer than the other years at the same period. The sun is very aggressive, our son had a allergic reaction in his face, which never happened in the last 6 years… Today he’s going better, and we could have a super nice walk at Grand Fond. More on that tomorrow!
Just to locate us from the Saint Jean beach.
