, Gustavia,
Thursday, December 19, 2013

Gustavia was the port that we tendered into today for our stop in St. Bart's... A small island only eight square miles surrounded by a very rough rocky coastline. We weren't sure if we would stop here because again today the seas were rough and we had to tender in to the port. I will give it to the ship that they have been very careful to make sure people were safe, but that is there job! Some of the elderly have quite a time maneuvering between the landing to the rocking tender!

Of note besides the rocky area, is the harbor that is full... And I mean FULL of mega yachts, one bigger to the next. Yachts equipped with boats - including the smaller (35foot) motor boat AND a sail boat along with jet skis... Please! It was some what amazing yet way too much! We walked around the town filled with every high end shop that you can imagine. Sorry, no t-shirts from St. Bart's!

Later on tonight we head off to San Juan, our last port before home. We are hiking in the rain forest at that port and can't wait for the exercise!!!
