I had breakfast at the Colonnade Restaurant on the Seabourn Sojourn. The views of the island were beautiful.
St. Barts does not have a large enough pier so we needed to take a tender from the ship to the island. The ride was a bit choppy and I was glad to arrive in only a few minutes.
Tourism Board of St. Barts had arranged for Claude to meet me at the pier and take me on a tour of the island. He told me how it was only 25 square kilometers, with 25,000 residents – and no unemployment. The season here is from November to April and most of the hotels and many restaurants close at least for September and October.
I was also amazed by the airport runway that looked like it went right into the beach, almost like the experience in St. Maarten.
Back at the pier I bid farewell to Claude and headed back to the Seabourn Sojourn. It had just started raining and I hoped it didn’t last.
For dinner in Restaurant 1, I enjoyed a Butternut Squash Broth with Sage Dumplings, the flavorful Potato Bonda Yogurt Dumplings and then the Toasted Angel Hair Pasta.
We finished the night with a fun and tasty party put on by the staff at Seabourn. The very talented members of the Seabourn crew (including Cruise Director Heidi, shown here) performed as we enjoyed an array of desserts and cordials.
Even after that sugar, I was exhausted enough to get a good night sleep as the ship sailed its way to Barbuda.
