We prefer Potter's if our entire crew just wants grilled lobster (or their lobster fettuccine). We go to Wonky Dog if some of the crew want other menu options.

According to the local weekly newspaper, St Barth had 112 yachts/megayachts for New Years, down from 215 last year. That suggests that 50% of the yachts may not be around.

My favorite dish while in St. Martin. I pay one of the housekeepers at LaVista Beach, an excellent cook,to make me a big pot of "curry goat" every year.

Reminds me that while recovery is underway we are all in someway in mourning/grieving/coping over what happened just now only 4 months ago. I cant imagine what it must be like.

I don't remember site but I just did a google search entered stay park fly and the airport and a list came up. But then I went to individual hotel sites and found a better rate.

I do understand there are more important issues on your plates. wink


I believe Eric is still doing some work on the calendar. At least that was my last understanding as he had me try some things last weekend.

Beach along the water edge is great, you can go barefoot but be cautious, there is debris and have found some glass. The sand does seem to be filling in as there are less rocks in the water than a week ago but that can change quickly.

Had Irma never happened, we'd be on the beach right now completing our second week. But just moved one of our missed weeks to August thanks to a couple of emails to Paulina. Airfare from Boston thru PHL on American was $391 rt. On the wait list to see if we can pair the lost second week with one of our regular weeks when we we return next year with family. Happy things came together quickly with none of the hassles we heard impacted others.

US VI and Puerto Rico
Yesterday at 08:20 PM
Easiest would be to get a mooring at Frenchtown Marina - contact CYOA Yacht Charters. Dinghy to their dock then walk the 5 minutes to C&I.

We cleared in today. Try to avoid arriving when 2 ferry boats pull in! They will clear in the ferries before private vessels. We had a 45 minute wait. In December it took us 5 minutes when the ferry dock was clear.

Note that C&I at Charlotte Amalie is closed from Noon-1 PM.

The C&I agent I spoke with could not offer any status update on the STJ office reopening. He quietly acknowledged that only an estimated 25% of the STT and STJ day boats running to the BVI were legalling clearing back in at Charlotte Amalie.

They have tried to fix this water problem many times over the years, but nothing was successful. They need ditches on both sides of the road to fix this problem, but the road is too narrow for these. Moving some properties and widening the road is the only answer and it seems that is not going to happen.

I believe I read that they intend to repair the terminal building to withstand a future cat 5 hurricane. Stronger than it was before. That is going to take longer than some simple patchwork.

Southern Caribbean
Yesterday at 04:48 PM
There are many stories around on some sites, many by people who have not been there for quite a while. If one is looking for a high end yacht club/YCCS experience, this is not the place to go unless one is going to park at Mustique (no marina though). If one wants to experience as much of the old Caribbean as still exists, this is it.

Boat Boys in the Grenadines are generally quite helpful in my experience. In the Tobago Cays they need to have a license to even be there, and this is how they make a living. One can get bread, sundries, ice, tobacco, fish, lobster, and more. It is a bit pricey, but when one considers they have fuel bills, inventory, and the convenience of delivery it is not too bad, Ask/confirm the pricing in advance for things they will bring in the morning. Some negotiation is possible. Politeness, as always, is key.

St. Lucia and St. Vincent proper they can be a bit aggressive coming out to meet you a mile off shore to volunteer to take your lines. No Boat boys in Carriacou or Grenada we saw.

I estimated a 40 week rebuild and they think 30 weeks. A villa cannot be built in the BVI in 30 weeks.

Basically the insurance company is abusing their clients.
