Location: Gustavia, St. Barth’s
We arrived in St. Barths early in the morning after an exciting night sail from Barbuda. We anchored near the harbor and gave Ostar a nice scrub down before moving her to the dock. With Ocean Star clean and settled starboard-to against the dock (right in front of the Louis Vuitton store, might I add) we enjoyed a few hours of free time in the afternoon. Most of us relaxed on board and took much-needed naps to recover from the lack of sleep during our night sail, some of us rushed to the showers, and others explored the surrounding streets and shops. After our usual 6pm Squeeze, we set off to Le Select for dinner. This restaurant inspired Jimmy Buffet to write the song Cheeseburgers in Paradise, so naturally we ate cheeseburgers (or fish burgers, for some, and fries of course!) After the meal we wandered around St. Barths and indulged in plenty of window-shopping. Eight of us ended up at La Creperie towards the end of the night having crepes for dessert could not have been a better way to end our first day in St. Barths.
