Current Location: Anse de Columbier Mooring, St. Barths
Miles Traveled: 0
Weather: Mostly sunny, breezy (5-10), high-70s
Highlights: Took the dinghy to Gustavia this morning to clear in, then find a place for lunch. Check-in was pretty simple (computerized, friendly, and we pay when we check out), but finding a good restaurant was more of a challenge. Only 3 places open around the waterfront, two were packed, so we tried the 3rd (Victoria's). Got a good table, waited 20 minutes for a busboy to clear it, waited another 20 minutes for a waiter, finally went and got our own menus, waited another 10 minutes, then finally gave up and left. Walked around the waterfront for a bit, hiked up the hill to the old fort (closed for 3 hours for mid-day lunch break), then back to the earlier pub where the crowd had thinned out. Found a nice table, service was ok, food was so-so (cheeseburger for Terry, mahi-mahi sandwich for Amy, plus a couple of drinks), and the bill was only!! $90.00, including tip. At these prices, we'll be mostly eating on the boat for the next week or so.
