    I went to most of those restaurants and wore shorts. Regret packing pants. Nobody was wearing them.

    I always bring 1 pair of linen trousers. I like feeling a bit dressed up between the shorts, tee shirts and bathing suits (or sans suit when the mood strikes) Bonito or L'Isola would warrant them for me. Haven't been to Bagatelle yet but that would be another possibility. Basically, if the Mrs. is "dressing up", I'm dressing up. OTOH, you would not be turned away in nice shorts and a polo anywhere that I know of. Used to be the restaurant at the Guanahani required long pants but it's closed for now.

    The one place which required long pants, Le Bartolomeo at Hotel Guanahani, is still closed post-Irma. You’ll be fine.

    Pre-Luis, the restaurant where Pearl Beach is now located was Chez Francine. Next door was Le Bamboo.

    We went to Guadeloupe for a number of years, then Martinique, Saint Martin and then St. Barths in 1986. Then for several years we split the trip between Guadeloupe and St. Barths and then said .... WHY? Have been every year in Feb. since (except for two) and about seven times in the summer with our kids....... hard to believe it's been over 30 years. Fun to read the memories of Mini Mokes, no telephones, no t-shirts for sale, and wonderful restaurants now long gone.

    1993 Honeymoon. I had never been to the Caribbean...my childhood and early adulthood did not include fantasical trips to "exotic locations". We stayed in an apartment overlooking St. Jean that was owned by my husband's best friend's parents, can't remember the name of the complex. St Barths was almost overwhelming to my unsophisticated self and I was appalled that we were spending $100 for lunch! Memories are fuzzy, but I remember Saline being the most beautiful beach I had ever seen. I remember we had lunch at Chez Francine on St. Jean and I am pretty sure also had lunch at the Manapany location. Fast forward 11 years and we started visiting with our children (sometimes in a good year, twice) and haven't stopped since then.

    Yes, little buds. And a green blush on some lawn spots at the villa. However, should we have no more rain showers, I worry that the new fragile growth will quickly burn away.

    Yes Le Flaymboyant was an incredible restaurant up the hill over the tennis courts. They made the greatest lobster puff pastry. Maragot Bay club, Sapoltier, and of course my favorite AuPort before they moved the post office across the street. Ines Ghetto and what was that name of the beach restaurant where Pearl is located now?

    Amy . . . does this “green foliage” observation mean that recent rain showers are bringing some meaningful new growth to the island?

    Cheryl and I were married in 1987. Looking for a special place to honeymoon. I had never been to the Caribbean so she researched Islands with a trade wind for the beginning of June. Voila...stayed at the old El Sereno, didn’t love the beach however a student of mine recommended Filao which had this incredible beach right by the airport. We drove to the beach at St. Jean every day and used one of those old white beach lounges I think made out of fiberglass. Filao never charged us for those chairs. They did keep us happy with drinks on the beach through. Except for two years we have visited every year since. Returning next May

    I have told this story a few times. In my early days of working on Nantucket, installing carpet and some landscaping, an interior decorator asked me to bind and install a stair runner on one of her projects. In exchange she offered her 3 bedroom villa in Flamands for a week over Thanksgiving. Seemed like a no brainer to me. My wife, her sister ( in exchange of babysitting duties ) and five children went to the island. We rented a Moke and discovered paradise. Beaches, Mayas, Hideaway, Sante Fe 'Mexican food back then'. Even sunset drinks at Carl Gustaf. Lost track of the times we have been back. Hopefully again in November.

    Wonderful to welcome back feathered friends. And this is a super photo. The white crested doves, two pair, can again be found in Lurin-just yesterday one posed on our hillside which is showing some new green foliage.

    I stalked this beauty for a few days and finally captured a decent shot. I had heard from multiple sources (pool guy, housekeepers, friends) that the colibri had all but disappeared after Irma. Iím happy to report that at least two have come back to the Colombier hillside.

    Terrific. I do have a few editing comments, and they too could be wrong. The Gustaf was still new, opened 1993 with Isle de France and Toiny, and Maya's recently celebrated their 35th, so not so new in '94. Stephan and Bernard were island fashion mainstays for so long. They are seeing the world as they enjoy their well earned retirement.
