This weekend the annual Heineken Regatta is the main attraction on St Maarten,
with all classes and nationalities of sailing boats entered,
including the Merchant Marine boat (which won its class today).
We can watch the Regatta from its origin at Simpson Bay on the Dutch side
or as it passes our Rainbow Beach Club or in Marigot on the French side.
When we go to Marigot, we always go to Sarafina's, a favorite French bakery and
cafe, for lunch and dessert. Today's chosen desserts included
raspberry torte and tarte d'abricots (sorry, I couldn't wait to take a bite).
But there's always so much more to choose.
The savory crepes and the peach tea are delicious, too.
Tomorrow we'll be on one of the Regatta boats,
and maybe I'll chance taking photos to share.
