    ‘Twas indeed. Thanks for the pics. Rosemond has the “class photo”, which I’m sure that Ellen will post when she has a chance. It was nice to meet a few old friends, but the majority of the people who were there were new to me. It’s great that newer forum members came out to meet and to talk. Thanks go to WIMCO for picking up the tab for the first round.

    that's good to know.. this online from 2017.. what is Le Piment's second place in SBH? Le Piment, a French bistro with two locations in St. Barts, is opening an eatery in Miami Beach’s South-of-Fifth neighborhood... it may have been Le Bouchon?

    I love when that happens. We lucked out seeing the Bucket pre start staging and the finish from our deck. Life is good.

    Success, of course, can be judged in many ways. I donít recall the story of Vincent Adam in the US, but I would say that Mayaís foray into the Hamptons was a success by some measures . . . principally in the respect that it was ďpackedĒ all the time. A very difficult reservation to get. My impression, however, was that many factors associated with success combined to make the seasonal venture one of dubious value when operational issues were weighed against economics.

    I would guess 80 to 90% of the tourists here are American.. or North American... so I guess if a restaurant is successful here, the thought is it would do well in the States.. Maya's and Vincent Adam might say otherwise, but times have changed since they tried the NY area market...

    Most of the obvious traces of Irma are long gone. By the time that you return the new Eden Rock will have reopened, new in that they are making major changes, not just storm repairs. The Guanahani will have reopened as well. Cheval Blanc is partially open, but will be closing in May for additional repairs and improvements. …meraude Plage will not reopen. The property has been leased by the owners of Le Barthelemy, and will become the site of a new hotel. All of the restaurants have reopened, with the exception of Ocorail, Gloriette, and Hideaway. It’s unlikely that Ocorail will get permits to reopen. There are rumors that the Gloriette property has been leased for a new restaurant. Hideaway has changed hands, and is expected to reopen “soon”, probably with a different concept....

    So glad you will be coming back. January is more crowded. Expect changes-most are for the better. Construction boomed all over the island-both new and renovations. More poles underground.wise decision. Some roads wider. Most in better shape. Vegetation? Green if there has been rain. Tan or brown foliage if there has been a drought. Sargassom floating in the water and on the beaches...depends on so many ecological events that it is unpredictable. Stores and restos-many changes. Parking, a nightmare and involves timing and lady luck. Still our happy place,and always eager to get back. Safe travels.

    Hi Andy, we are staying in the same villa up on the hill. Such lovely views from there. I would love to organize a night where we could all meet up and have a few drinks. Although Irma was as bad as it gets it was such a memorable time in our life, one I will never forget, lol.

    Welcome back. How could anyone forget your adventure? There are plenty of posts about the island now and in January 2020 it will be much better. St Jean-was hit pretty hard but Nikki is up, Lil Beach and Pearl Beach are full steam ahead. Where on St Jean are you thinking of staying?

    Hello everyone, itís a while since I posted and most wonít even know me. Its Belinda, my husband, daughter and I were on the island when we had the lovely visitor Hurricane Irma. You all were such a fantastic help to myself and our family during what was a stressful time for everyone. Not to bore you all too much but we came back to the island in the February after Irma to help with the clean up and havenít been back since. Our daughter was and is still somewhat troubled by the storm memories. However, we are coming back in January 2020 (earliest time we can make it) and Iím wondering what the island is like now. We will be staying in St Jean again. Any in site would be wonderful. We absolutely canít wait to see the beautiful island again in all its glory. Once again, thank you for all...
