There is a back road to the Butterfly Farm and then into Orient Beach that many locals know about. It is probably easier than walking :)

I just tried to get to Orient Bay from Dawn Beach area (i am next to Westin Resort). Confirming the blockade is up, not as far north as it was yesterday.

This kind of information speaks well within this forum. Let's keep it civil without a political overtone. Thanks in advance.

Well written article. Reading between the lines, the end of the blockade is truly a wildcard.

Three ships docked at the Port of Phillipsburg right now with 10,000 to 12,000 passengers. One more arriving this afternoon with 3,000 more passengers.
If the roadblocks stay up the Dutch are going to make some money today.

The back route was blocked with boulders last summer.

As of 2 hours ago the gendarmes were there to prevent the blocking of the road

First time we've not stayed close to Orient and now we're stuck outside looking in.

Question: I'm in Orient bay and need to get my daughter from the Airport on Friday at 1PM? Any suggestions?

on Saturday I need to get my two other daughters to the Airport. Contingency ideas would be great!

3 day into our strangest visit so far.
