Adrift Beside St. Barthe's.....

French is the prevailing language,
and it is so lovely and familiar
to these ears.....I get about half
of what is said. Enough, though. Everything here
is compacted onto the waterfront and
up the steep hillside. Givenchy,
Yves St. Laurent, a mini-Paris of shopping.
Paul and I have been shopping for linen
shirts, which line the shop walls
in abundance, in every color imaginable.
It's really the only fabric to wear
in this humidity. Hoping to rendez-vous
with my neighbor Nina tomorrow, who is
working on a private yacht. We'll try.
We'll see. Lobster last night for dinner.
