I knew there was a reason! Updated with photos

I knew there was a reason that I have not driven Carol down Front Street in P'burg, just forgot why I had not done it in years. Then I remember... after the fact Reminder to self, do not do this!!! There is a reason!!!

With only one ship in (but it was the Oasis) it really was not crowded at all. That and they had front street open to traffic. So drop her at the "Old Street" entrance and I go to the paid lot a Bobby's and head back to find her.

Fortunately I drop her off with NO CASH OR CREDIT CARDS!! Brilliance on my part, don't think??

Unfortunately, when I found her she had already had her eyes on a couple of places on Old Street. This is not good, I think to myself! Reminder to self, do not take Carol to Front Street, this is a "Bad Thing!" I knew there was a reason why she had not been there in a long time, silly me forgot!!

After to couple of store stops (that she had ALREADY FOUND) Then it was off the Caribbean Gems to (replace/fix/make woman happy) to get the silver chain that would really work with the Garnet she got in Marigot the other day. There was no happening with what it came with, so to Caribbean Gems with the
pendant in hand to make sure the silver necklace would work. AMAZINGLY!!!! Caribbean Gems came through, FIRST TRY EVEN, funny how that happens!!!

Reminder to self, do not take Carol to Front Street!!

Got the silver necklace to "fix" the Garnet!! (I said there was a reason not to take her to front street, remember??)

Then the artist that does the sand paintings/tile work.

Then the glass jewelry store -- that if you buy enough then you also get the volume/set discount! So she got the volume discount.

In reality it was not much and when you see the pictures then you will agree.

But that is not the point! Front Street is fine, just do not give them Credit Cards or Cash and wait in the parking lot or at the local establishment have some liquid refreshment. Going back to them when they ARE IN THE STORES "LOOKING" is generally not a good idea!

Reminder to self, do not take Carol back to Front Street for several more years. Thinking maybe I should archive this post in the trip reports section to remind me!!

Here are the photos:
