Traffic was abnormally bad today in Grand Case, all the way into Marigot, particularly northbound traffic, due to construction. It took me 45 minutes to get through Grand Case. I was going southbound, fortunately.
But it did give me chance to mentally absorb Grand Case’s current post hurricane
situation , which is not particularly good. Also there is another major detour if you are driving north from philippsburg to Orient, well before you make your left toward the Orient area. More construction, I suppose. I was not in a hurry, so it was only a minor problem for me ! Overcast today, rested my mild sunburn and took pictures.

Thanks for the report. Seems like there have been lots of reports of bad traffic on the French side in recent days. Guess I'll find out myself next month..

The traffic from the airport coming into Maho and in particular the two bars where the planes land was backed up with buses galore bringing them in from the two big cruise ships that we see each morning and evening passing by where we stay. Had drinks at the yacht club, lunch at Tropicana, so from Simpson’s bay went over the causeway into Marigot and back through Nettles Bay and missed it all, also finally went into MonoPrix, cool French supermarket. SO sad to see the state of Marina Royale from what it used to be so many years ago but Tropicana has not lost its quality or service and thank goodness for that as working my way through the menu.

And using the term "gym bag" must put us close to the same age.

You have me by a few years but the term "gym bag" is not used much anymore, especially by anyone under 50 or so. Glad your mom is still around. Not so fortunate here as she passed at just over 70.
