The girls were up fairly early and decided that they wanted to go to a different beach; they wanted to go that morning. As I mentioned to you Reegan has such fair skin that she burns within minutes of being in the sun. Andrea on the other hand, told me that she never burns because she is Greek and her skin tans easily. First things first I said, “Let’s go to the pharmacy and get some sunscreen”. They like the spray kind and had decided upon Gouverneur Beach which is a gorgeous undeveloped beach. There is no shade, however. They made their lunches, packed the cooler and we dropped them off at 10:30. We picked them up at 1:30. They had really enjoyed swimming and sunning there.
What’s next? I had made plans to dine that evening with my long time (11 visits with SBP!) wonderful clients Mike and Bonnie long before I had surprised Reegan with this trip. Not a big deal as these teenage girls love to shop and wanted to wander around Gustavia and get their bearings before doing some serious shopping later in the week. They also wanted to go to the famous Le Select for a Cheeseburger in Paradise. We made plans, dropped them off in Gustavia and then picked them up at about 7:00. They were glad to spend the evening alone at the villa. (Yes, they were sunburned, too.) They had their laptops and were happily posting their activities on Facebook!
In the meantime, Steve and I took Bonnie and Mike to dinner at Taïno restaurant at the Christopher. It was as if we had been friends for life! We had such a good time and they have already booked Villa Le Perchoir for their 12th visit (in 2012 no less).
