An Ultra Special Guest

Posted by Tni Newhoff on April 15th, 2007

We were SO thrilled to have David’s dad come and stay with us for a week. It was very special to have him finally see the boat and we loved sharing St. Barts with him. He was with us for Easter and we went to a mass given in French. Ours was a unique Easter, […]

A Day at the Sereno

Posted by Tni Newhoff on April 12th, 2007

We had always wanted to travel to St. Barts together and though they were missed on this trip, Ludy and Monte made their presence greatly felt. They surprised us with a very generous treat of a day at the ultra chic Sereno, complete with lunch, an afternoon of lounging by the pool, and dinner. We […]

The Bucket

Posted by Tni Newhoff on April 10th, 2007

We were incredibly lucky as we just happened to be in St. Barts during The Bucket, a three day race for boats over 100 feet. The megayachts that once filled the marina were ushered out to make room for the mega sailboats. These things were amazing! We had seen one here, another there, but to […]

The Best Free Entertainment

Posted by Tni Newhoff on April 8th, 2007

We could stand there endlessly (and did sometimes…over and over again) watching the planes land in St. Barts. I wonder if there exists anywhere a runway like it. It lies at the base of a hill which makes for a very steep and quick descent. At the end of the strip is the sand and […]

Here is a great pic of David helping a young motorist in distress. Anna, as it turns out, ended up being our waitress at not one but two of the local restaurants.

St. Barts

Posted by Tni Newhoff on April 6th, 2007

Yes, it is true, we loved St. Barts. We had a feeling we would, as did Ludy and Monte who have been going there annually for years. Beyond the natural beauty with whitewashed buildings and red tin roofs peppering the landscape of rugged hills that melted into the most beautiful white sand beaches, beyond the […]

After our bumpy ride from St. Martin we were thrilled to arrive at the beautiful, semi-secluded anchorage of Colombier on the northwestern coast of St. Barts. While in St. Martin we were anchored in a lagoon which did not allow us to swim off the back of the boat, so it was nice to be […]

Monte: “St. Martin or Bust!”

Posted by Tni Newhoff on March 19th, 2007

I just had to add that on our short but treacherous journey from St. Martin to St. Barts, Monte (the dinghy, not the person) decided that he was not ready to leave St. Martin and attempted to make his way back. I happened to be gazing at the horizon and a little over a mile […]

Those who know me well know how much I love champagne. Those who know me even better know how much I love Ruinart champagne. It has been my favorite for years, it is the champagne that my husband proposed to me with, and sadly it has been absent from US shelves for quite some time. […]
