I hope that all of you had a great holiday celebration wherever you happened to be. Lots of things are going on here in St. Barts. The harbor is brimming with Mega-Yachts – a beautiful sight to see both day and night. Monday evening Steve and I decided to check out things in Gustavia. A fashion show, Ballade en Ville, on the new cobblestone rue de Général de Gaulle was scheduled to start at 8:00 pm.
We strolled along the harbor and looked at the Christmas scene which is displayed on one of the stages on the quai. At the very same time there was a Hanukkah celebration going on and it was taking place only a few yards away on a different stage. It was fun to see that two religious groups can coexist very nicely here on St. Barts.
After watching some of the fashion show and not having made dinner reservations, we decided to go to the Baz Bar because we love the place and they do not take reservations. We sat at a lovely table by the water and watched the Tomas Doncker Band perform. As we were concluding our delicious dinners, clients who have become great friends of ours walked by. We invited them to join us while we finished up our great bottle of Sancerre blanc (my favorite).
Jimmy Buffett along with family and friends happened to be dining at the Baz Bar too and suddenly the band was in their second set and up jumped Jimmy with his guitar. He began singing “Volcano” but changed the lyrics to describe what St. Barth is like at this time of year! What a treat for us all.
If you come down to St.Barth, you may be one of the lucky ones to enjoy one of Jimmy’s impromptu performances. Contact [email protected] to reserve your villa or hotel.
