|Mega Yacht dock|
|Dinghy dock .... just a little difference!!!|
St Barth was originally French then in the late 1700’s was given to Sweden to allow France free access to the Swedish port of Gothenburg. St Barth under the Swedes became a free port trading with all countries. After a hundred years and a few hurricanes and changes in trade, Sweden sold it back to France but many of the street names and harbours carry Swedish names.
The boutiques are all designer and upscale, the restaurants a superbly decorated – the downside is that the prices are also very upscale – for example a lunchtime Caesar salad is 18 euros or US$20.
|Hermes ...... excuse meeeeeee!|
|This would be impossible with as little 2cm of snow!|
|The Swedish Consulate|
As we headed back past the Customs house to the dinghy dock the officer called us back in …. OPPS I wonder what has gone wrong ….. luckily he had picked up our official boat documents and passports, that we had accidently left at the computer station when filling out forms. We need to improve our process of keeping hold of our papers better!
