One More Day in Gustavia

Nov 23, 2013


Location: Gustavia, St. Barths
Author: James
Another day starts under the Caribbean sun aboard Ocean Star when music echoes through the saloon and onto deck. Then the crew struggles out of their bunks after a late night in Saint Barths. We all climb up the companionway squinting from the sun to line up for breakfast of eggs and sausages. After breakfast we then head to the saloon for marine bio and oceanography. After classes we have a free day to walk around Saint Barths for one more day. Some people go ashore to get something to eat or do some shopping for the holidays. Personally I go to get some pizza at a place that looks more like a Chinese restaurant but actually has really good pizza with all different toppings like smoked salmon or cream cheese. I have a pizza with bacon and mozzarella. So some of us sit there eating pizza and checking up on what’s going on back home. Some other people just walk around the town or go to a nearby beach. After the day we all meet up back at the boat for squeeze and dinner. For squeeze my question of the day is “What is your favorite holiday tradition?” considering it’s so close to the holiday season. So we all sit there eating a shrimp dinner with the sun setting behind us. Ahoy to all you on shore and hope to see you soon. Skipper of the day, James
