Champagne Life on a Beer Budget (MJ Sailing – EP 63)

We’ve just made it from the Bahamas to St. Barth’s, and we’re ready to enjoy ourselves! We’ve been placed on an island with perfect beaches, perfect waters, and breathtaking views.

After stumbling around town our first morning, still suffering from sleep deprivation, we instantly fall in love with St. Barth’s and its main harbour of Gustavia. There are beaches full of shells, brilliant turquoise waters, and panoramic views from up on the hillsides.

Being such a popular harbour, we were pushed to the back where we ended up anchored on a bed of rocks, but luckily the forecast was for very light winds and we were not worried about dragging.

Cheers from St. Barth’s!
