    Hi Tiffany, Sounds like a great plan for Senior pics. Is your dance daughter going as well?

    Love your post. Having spent so many years at Equestrian dressage shows with Anita’s family, I find humor in your post. I can understand and appreciate your post. Personally, I was not a fan of the smell of horse poop and swatting horse flies. LOL

    I can see that. My husband has that sense of life after a medical issue that was caught early. I think our pilots that day were giving us the full SBH flight experience. Another lady on board actually ducked and screamed. I am thankful for every flight that glides in slowly now.

    I like the sound and smell of rain, but we’ve had enough in Virginia lately to last me for a while. Hoping it doesn’t follow us on vacation.

    Love everyone’s smell sensation rememberances. Being an equestrenne from way back (retired from it now), spending many hours at the show barn, I LOVE the smell of horses and barns and all that this environment encompasses, inside as well as outside in the pastures. Kind of odd, I guess, but very calming to me. Good memories!

    You can find 99% of all the wines on all the wine lists and all the shops in the US. Just go on wine-searcher.com and put in your search parameters as to name , vintage, etc. and most importantly the state you want to search. If you leave this field blank, it will search all states and all countries. When you find the wine and the least expensive store selling it, you can click on the link to the shop and order it. For the Westchester resident check out ZACHYS, Westchester Wine Warehouse, Varmax, Suburban Wine, to name a few. All of these have knowledgeable people working the floor. Total wine does not have enough people on the floor that know wine. Total Wine also owns 51% of the labels on the shelves. They are privately bottled for them under contract.

    Our first trip was also in 2006. We discovered St Barts "by accident" after having the Isle de France hotel come up in a Google search for something else. It was love at first sight with the view of Flamands through the arch of the hotel. After researching more, we ended up booking Villa Kyody in Marigot. Booked that before I realized the flight that was required to get there. I don't love to fly, OMG. My husband told the very handsome Winair pilot loading the plane in SXM that it was our first time there and he replied that we would take off shortly as his co-pilot was at the bar getting a drink to calm his nerves for the flight over. LOL. It was quite the flight, did a nosedive at the end and haven't had one quite like that since. Thank God. Just when I thought the worst of...

    During our recent visit we heard some discussion/concern of building permits being given in some of the protected areas. Don't know how factual this is. The explanation given to us is that some of the local families who have been on the island for multiple generations have requested building permits for their expanded family members adjacent to land they currently occupy. It was explained to us that land may be in a restricted (red?) area but the local family may own some of it. We learned that as the government continues to allow additional large Villas to be constructed, it is very difficult to say no to multigenerational island families who want to keep their loved ones nearby. Would appreciate any comments others have who are more informed on this.

    During the day when we were there, the wind picked up and some of the patrons were eating SANDwiches!. Still pretty nice thought.

    Pitter patter on the metal roof is a wonderful sensation! The crashing of the waves and the sunsets (and sunrises) from there are wonderful, with the winds blowing over the "Rock." And Mango for lunch just down the hill! AHHHHHHH!

    Our discovery of SBH was very much by chance and much more recently. My now husband was on a business trip and was reading the USA Today that had been delivered to his hotel room. He saw an article about SBH and brought it home because he thought is sounded perfect for a honeymoon (we weren't even dating at the time-he saved that article for basically 3 years!). In 2006 we made our first visit and fell in love with the island immediately. The views driving around the island and from our villa in Vitet immediatly captivated us. We also celebrated his 25th birthday at with dinner at Eden Rock on that trip so it will always be a special place for us. Can't wait to be back for trip number 5 soon!

    I still have their chambray shirt--white with blue lettering! Loved that place. Spot George often walking in Gustavia. The shock of seeing the charge on the VISA bill when we got home was a hoot!

    FT, check for wine lists in the links included in my Resto List, which can be found at https://www.sbhonline.com/forums/showthread.php/96885-Restos-20-Final A very few may include copies of the restaurant's wine lists. You may find some useful information there.

    We're much later than anyone else in this conversation, but first-night dinner on our first trip in 2001 was at Marigot Bay Beach Club (covering all possibilities), per recommendation from our seasoned St. Barth friends. Wonderful place and food made better by the sigh of "we made it!" Wish we had given up skiing for warm sooner!

    I loved the planteurs that Lafayette Club served in goldfish bowl-sized goblets. They certainly helped with any price resistance that I had!

    One reason that I sometimes pillage wine lists on St Barth is that I find bottles on them which I don’t expect to see at home.
