How and when did you discover St Barth?

-

I discovered St. Barth when I was on my honeymoon, when my fabulous husband packed for me and surprised me with this heavenly paradise. We have kept on returning often ever since.

-

St Barth is ___Heaven_____ ? (one word, please)

-

Would you liken yourself most to a “laid-back iguana”, a “hungry barracuda” or an “athletic goat”? ;) 

-

I wouldn’t describe myself as any of them.  What I love about the island is that it gives you oxygen.  Each day is a breath of fresh air, whether sailing, swimming, hiking, or laying on one of the many beautiful beaches.

- 

What is your favorite place on the island?

-

La Plage des Flamands.  I still remember playing in the waves with our 3 boys, that are all young men now. We still play in those waves today.

Can you share a moment in St Barth you will always remember? 

-

I think sitting on St. Jean at sunset, having an Aperol spritz with my husband, and just letting the water wash over us, and thinking this is such a gift.

-

When did you buy your first Pati de St Barth t-shirt? Do you still have it? (Don’t worry if you don’t have one… but we’ll have to send you one!)

-

We have far too many to list in every color, shape and size.  Pati de St. Barth is a family affair, just like the island. xxxxx
