Pastries, Market, Fort

The family enjoyed a morning in Marigot - visiting the delicious pastry shop Sarafina's, wandering around the Market for last minute Christmas gifts and island treasures, and a short hike up to Fort Louis.  As usual when my sister is around I hand off the camera for a break from behind the lens and to get some photos with a different perspective (not to say I don't snag it back here and there when something catches my eye).

mmmmmm - so good

fresh olive bread

wandering the Market - there is local spices, vanilla and some fruits and vegetables and some fresh fish early in the morning.  You can also find art work, jewelry, clothing and other island goods for fair prices.

this spot has always felt magical with the long grasses blowing in the wind.  The boys running around - climbing on rocks.  like they are running wild out in the country.
