... expires every ninety days, so to keep ourselves legal, we always take a small vacation, or holiday. Well, a couple of weeks ago decided to go to the ‘famous’ French Island of St Barts.

I guess we were there for about 30 minutes and then we had to start the trek home again before it got too hot out. Too late! By the time we reached the end of Simpson Bay - we were all covered in a decent layer of perspiration and the sun was out full ...
