St Barth Agent Visit

May 2011
by Bill Chittick

Sunday May 1st: Steve, Maia & I took JetBlue Boston-St Maarten, a short 3hr 10min flight (side note - coolest things on board: popcorn chips! even Stop & Shop has never heard of them). Arriving early gave us plenty of "hurry up and wait" time to get to Esperance airport on the French side for the trip to St Barts. SBH Commuter carefully weighs all passengers & luggage for the trip, and not all bags made it on as a result. Eh, qu’importe…

Villa WV TDCOnce on St Barts, we rendezvoused with WimcoSBH staff,who were holding down the fort. We then checked into villa WV TDC which was our home away from home for a few days. I ended up with the Goldilocks-approved Baby Bear's room with an awesome view which was perfectly fine. That night we ate at Andy's Hideaway and enjoyed a wonderful meal.

Monday May 2nd: Awoke to the news that Osama was killed by special-ops Navy seals. Naturally, I panicked thinking this was the President, and wondered why Steve was so calm. A little coffee, all was fine...
