Very early in the morning we anchor in St. Bath. The view on the island is a dream! A green island, rocks in front of the coast and yards as fas as you can see. The weather is not so nice today but it doesn´t matter! http://www.st-barths.com/en/home.html
St. Barth is a mixture of Asia and the small island Sylt in Germany to me. The atlantic side is rough. The carribean side is green as a jungle.
The small airport is special. The runway is extremely short. Only very small planes can take off and land there.
The „capital“ Gustavia is the place where you can meet hippies, pretty people, fashion victims and shopping Lovers.
In the coffee shop at „Le Carré d´Or“ is the place to be.
At the harbour promenade one boutique is nicer as the other. Prada und Dolce & Gabbana also have opened their boutiques now.
Very much I love the boutique „Clic“. A concept store with fashion books, fashion, photo art and nice accessories. http://www.clic.com/
In the Boutique „Ascony Bart´s “ you find fashionable men clothes and nice games. http://www.ascony.net/
Two years ago I already fall in love with the Tahiti pearls jewels of Maryvonne & Gérard, „Bijoux de la Mer“. But I will tell you more about it another time.
The trend is established: Ground long skirts! I see young woman with a long, red volants skirt. She wears the skirt with a white top, a necklace with red pearls. Another woman wears a pink long volants skirt and has combines it a jeans blouse which is knoted at the waist. Unfortunately my camera striks and I cannot deliver any pictures…
