I broke down and rented a car today. It is a vice of mine. I love bombing around the twisty, hilly , island roads in some tiny clunker of a rental car. Kathleen had a massage and spent the day resting under the sun.
St. Martin is a beautiful island, but it is frequently marred by overdevelopment. Vars are everywhere, and traffic is horrendous. Also, they seem to be building new hotels rather than fixing up the older ones. These complaints mostly apply to the dutch side of the island, and thankfully we are staying on the french side, so we avoid most of the commotion. Ahhh, vacations are blissful. Peace. :^)
