    So in October (November not up yet for me) it looks like the Saturday flight from FLL to SXM is 7:46am - 10:14am and only $109!!! This allows for another almost full day in St Barths if we are willing to fly down the night before and stay over. Also allows me to leave Friday from the small airport less than 10 minutes from my house to fly to FLL instead of from JFK. On the way home I would still likely go direct from SXM to JFK though. This could be a nice option for me since Delta just changed our direct flight home to a transfer thru Atl with a 4 hour layover:(

    Hello, Our daughter is joining our upcoming trip last minute and will be taking the Ferry over from Marigot (on her own). We all usually fly so we have no experience with the Ferry. She will be flying in from JFK and has about three hours to wait for it. Are there any restaurants or places to get some food near the Ferry in Marigot? Or perhaps near the SXM airport? I remember a great little restaurant across the street from the airport but that was many moons ago.

    A protracted saga that concluded in November when the horses were sent to mainland France - Irma-related injuries, inability to ride, and insufficient shelter were cited as the main issues... in addition to finding homes, sending the horses to the mainland was complicated by the need to quarantine - an agreement was reached to have the quarantine on the island before le dernier voyage des chevaux de Gouverneur... some Shetland ponies remain. Here is story about finding a home for a horse from Patrick Kavanaugh as recited by Liam Clancy...

    What, rain in Virginia? Guess we'll stay a bit longer, then. As usual this time of year, there are daily shower possibilities, typically short and followed by glorious weather. Come on down, and travel safely! Tom

    That might have been me with the scream & the duck to look at the floor, have done this trip so many times over 20+ & gets more difficult each time. Years ago when lived on St Croix & working along the harbour, I would see one of the seaplane pilots at the bar near the plane ramp...coffee tho ! Glad you continue to return to this paradise we all love !

    Post-Irma, many of the horses were repatriated to mainland France and retired, but some still remain. There was a recent article in the local paper re3cently, but I don't recall the details.

    Okay, so maybe a simple comment, but, think back what the island looked like 20 years ago and project 20 years from now. What's it going to look like? Development pressure can be persuasive.

    Yes...we are headed that way right after Nuvo is over. Please pray for no snow. Our last DC comp, Jump in January, ended up with a snowstorm drive home. No fun. I NEED to get home this time to be on the plane south the following morning. :cool:

    There was an equestrian center near Gouverneur that has thread on the Forum and a Facebook page for it. I believe sadly post Irma it may no longer exist- https://www.facebook.com/asso.galopsdesiles/ https://www.sbhonline.com/forums/showthread.php/90975-St-Barts-Equestrian-Center-near-Gouverneur-Beach

    I don’t know if I’m “more informed” than you, Bill, but my impression is that there really isn’t a zoning map in place. There have been numerous proposals, as I recall the situation, & various court challenges related to them. Whether any plan has received final approval & been implemented, I’m unsure. In any event, I believe that, during periods without an approved zoning plan, there has been some building in areas that were sought to be protected.

    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.

    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...
