Homicide in Vtet

Perpetrator placed

in provisional detention


WELCOME!
The St. Barth Weekly is
happy to be back for its
fourth season. The Wee-
kly is designed to help
you put your finger on
the pulse of the local
community Featuring
an English r6sum6 of the
top stories in our French
newspaper, Le Journal de
Saint Barth, as well as
original articles in
English, The St. Barth
Weekly is the only com-
pletely English-language
newspaper on the island.
It is distributed on the
island every week from
November through the
end of July. Our most
exciting news is that each
Friday, The Weekly is
also available online at
Saint Barth Online
(www.st-barths.com), the
wonderful web site laun-
ched in 1996, and now
run by our friends Bruno
and G6raldine Colletas.
Thanks to them, you can
download every edition
of The St. Barth Weekly,
so that no matter where
you are in the world, you
can stay in touch with
your favorite island.


The drama took place at the bottom of this private drive.


The police arrested a cou-
ple living in Vitet last
Tuesday. After question-
ing at the gendarmerie in Gus-
tavia, the man who is of Brazil-
ian origin and who has lived in
Saint Barth for 10 years, was
placed in provisional detention
in Guadeloupe. He is suspected
of the stabbing death of Steve
Bouffar Roop, who was found
dead on Easter Monday in the
neighborhood of Vitet.
According to our information,
a neighborhood quarrel was at
the root of this drama. It was
Easter weekend and like many
young people on the island,
Steve decided to have some
fun: after a tour of the camp-
sites at Toiny, he and a friend
went to Gustavia to prolong the
holiday. Along the way, he saw


two teenagers who were hitch-
hiking, and stopped to pick
them up and take them to their
home in an apartment in a
rental house in the neighbor-
hood where the crime took
place. The private road that
leads to these houses is rather
steep, but that didn't stop Steve
from driving up it, in spite of
the loud noise from his car
whose muffler left a lot to be
desired. The noise increased as
Steve tried to get up the hill,
waking up the neighbors. A
first altercation broke out, fol-
lowed by a second, in which
the victim-who was drunk
according to witnesses-came
face to face with the suspected
perpetrator who risks, if found
guilty of involuntary homicide,
up to 30 years in prison.


Territorial

Council
Elections

In July

It's official: the first
election of Saint
Barth's new territori-
al council will be
held as expected on
July 1 and 8, as we
learned recently
from the French
overseas minister.
This election marks
the passage of Saint
Barth from a town in
Guadeloupe to an
Overseas Collectivity
detached adminis-
tratively from
Guadeloupe, to
which Saint Barth
has been attached
sine 1878. The Terri-
torial Council is the
new assembly that
will replace the cur-
rent municipal coun-
cil. A president,
elected by the 19
members of this new
council, will head the
collectivity. The min-
ister of the interior,
Frangois Baroin, is
expected to sign the
decree for the elec-
tions any day now.

Book Day, second edition


Initiated by UNESCO in 1995,
World Book Day marks its 11th
anniversary on April 23, and will
be celebrated for the second time in
Saint Barth. Launched by a group of
book lovers, and coordinated by Didi-
er Bensa and Jean-Pierre Hennequet,
the local event will take place on
Sunday, April 15 from 9:00am to
1:00pm in front of the Wall House
municipal museum. Various activities
will be held to help promote the dif-
fusion of books, and encourage
everyone, and especially young peo-
ple, to enjoy the pleasures of reading,
and to salute the considerable contri-
bution that authors make to the
thought process and to universal cul-
ture. There will also be a book
exchange, with books in French and
in English. The idea is simple: you
take your books on April 15 and
trade or donate them. The bookstores
will have stands with their special


af
;is


choice of books. A number of local
authors will be present at the second
annual International Book and Copy-
right Day, and their books will be


available for purchase at tables from
local bookshops. These island scribes
include Arlette Magras, Jeanne-Marie
Greaux, Jean Belotti, Jean-Marie
Led6e, Serge Perez, and Jean-Pierre
Ballagny. The roster also includes
five authors from abroad: poet Jean-
Michel Maulpoix, director of the
Writer's Center in Paris; author
Ernest Pepin from Guadeloupe;
painter-poet Luis Mizon from Chile;
and writer Virgile Novarina-all four
invited by the Week of Poetry which
begins the next day. The final guest is
children's book author/illustrator,
Pascale Bougeault.
A stand for children will include var-
ious activities including reading of
stories. Local authors who are also
invited to be on hand to answer
questions that the public might ask
about the art of writing. Celebrate
Book Day in Saint Barth... Sunday,
April 15!


French Presidential Elections

First Primary on April 21


L ike their counter-
parts in Saint-Mar-
tin, Guadeloupe,
Martinique, French
Guyana, French Polynesia,
Saint-Pierre and Miquelon,
the voters in Saint Barth
will be called to the polls I
for the first round of votes
in this year's presidential
elections on Saturday, April
21 rather than on Sunday,
April 22 as in metropolitan
France. This advance
vote-a custom put into
place for the 2004 Euro-
pean elections and the Con-
stitutional referendum in
May 2005-avoids having
local voters cast their votes
once the elections results
are already decided in
France. Unless someone
backs out at the last minute,
there will be 12 candidates
on the ballot in this primary,
compared to 16 on the same
St Barth Weekly n116


ballot in 2002.
As in the rest of France, the
election campaign opened
last Monday, but was met
with great indifference in
Saint-Barth where the
majority of the residents
were enjoying the end of a
sunny Easter weekend. At
this time, the island has
4,766 registered voters,
divided into four voting dis-
tricts. This represents an
increase of approximately
30% compared to the last
presidential elections in
2002. The second round of
voting will be held on Sat-
urday, May 5.

Stations of the Cross Highpoint of Easter Week
From Palm Sunday through East- 1
er Monday, the Pascal week was
marked by numerous religious ..
ceremonies, including the Stations of ". .-, __


the Cross on friday April 6, symboliz-
ing the Passion of Christ, from his
death sentence until he was laid in his
tomb. Catholic priest, Sylvere Numa,
who was accompanied by almost 300
people, including the local altar boys,
led this event. The Stations of the
Cross began at the fire station, mark-
ing the first station or the moment


when Jesus was condemned to death
by Pontius Pilate, and continued
through the thirteen stations, conclud-
ing at the same spot almost two hours
later. During the entire procession, two
men took turns carrying the heavy
wooden cross- that stands eight feet
tall and usually hangs above the altar
in the Catholic church in Lorient.

St. Barth F
he t ciflih edition of the
St. Barth Film Festival,
Cinema Caraibe, will be
held from April 25-30, 2007. The
program includes four feature
films and two shorts in 35mm, as
well as several video screenings,
including De memoire d'anciens,
a film depicting the history of
Saint-Barth.

Saudade do Futuro, the opening
night film, is a portrait of Sao
Paulo, Brazil, as seen by the
Nordestinos who move to the city
in search of a better life in the
economic and industrial heart of
the country. "In looking at this
large, bustling city, the filmmak-
ers take a look at the modern
world. It's an interesting mirror in
which we see ourselves reflect-
ed," says Ellen Lampert-Greaux,
co-director of the festival.
The second evening's film, Rolling
Family, is the Argentina version of Lit-
tle Miss Sunshine: a road movie, this
time the story of an 84 year-old grand-
mother invited to be the matron of
honor at a wedding and the whole
family sets out in an old camping car.
The result is a humorous look at four
generations of a family rolling through
Argentina.

Next up is The Harder They Come:
This cult film was shown at the inau-
gural festival in 1996 and will be
shown again this year. Why? "We
wanted to pay homage to Perry Hen-
zell, the Jamaican director of The
Harder They Come who passed away
in December 2006," notes Lampert-
Greaux. It is also the 35th anniversary
of this 1972 film which tells the story
of a country boy (Jimmy Cliff) who
moves to Kingston to try and realize
his dream of becoming a singer. The
film launched the popularity of reggae
around the world, and is on the list of
top ten Caribbean films.

In the horror/fantasy film category is
Pan's I,,,,i ni,h the extremely suc-
cessful film by Mexican director
Guillermo del Toro. It premiered at the
06


ilm Festival, N





n1I


Cannes film festival in 2006, and was
subsequently nominated for numerous
Academy Awards, of which it won
three: Best Cinematography, Best Art
Direction, and Best Make-Up, in addi-
tion to Golden Globe Awards and
BAFTA Awards. "This is one film not
to miss," says the festival co-director.

In addition to these features that will
be screened at Ajoe, there are also two
35mm short films on the program. The
first is II etait une fois... Sasha et
Ddsire, a film by Cecile Vernant from
Martinique, which will be shown
before The Harder They Come. This
25-minute film tells the story of the
love affair between Sasha and Desire,
who meet in France in the 1930s, as
seen in a flashback as Sasha tells the
story to her great grandchildren in
Martinique. The second is Adolfo, a
short feature of 43 minutes :l.ih i i1 be
shown at AJOE before the festival
moves to Zion Gardens in Saline for
an evening of music videos and live
music for a closing night party on
April 30. Adolfo is the first film by
French filmmaker Sofi Delaage, and is
the story of a taxi driver in Havana
whose car is forever in need of
repair... He is a Cuban who is torn
between the desire to leave and the
love he has for his crazy country.


umber 12 !
Video Evening
at the Capitainerie

On Sunday, April 29, the festi-
val presents a special video
evening in the large hall next to
Sthe Capitainerie on the main
dock in Gustavia. The program
begins with Lanmou a Bwa, a
new documentary by Janluk
Stanislas about the woodwork-
ers from Pointe Noire in his
native Guadeloupe. This will be
followed by the world premiere
S of De memoire d'anciens
(Memories of Our Past), a 52-
minute film directed by Victoire
Theismann and produced by
Telemac Production, a Saint
Barth production company run
by Cedric Robion, who also is
credited with the camera, sound,
and editing of this film which takes a
look at the history of Saint Barth
through the memories of its old-
timers, from clandestine travel to
Saint Thomas, working in the salt
flats, and the modernization of the
island to what is has become today.

The festival will also play host to the
Traveling Caribbean Film Showcase
organized in conjunction with
UNESCO. This is a collection of
films from across the Caribbean-a
total of 29 hours- that will be seen
throughout the year in various loca-
tions. The St. Barth Film Festival
was selected as one of the locations,
although it will not screen all of the
films. Several short films for chil-
dren will be shown in the island
schools, and several of the documen-
taries, including Port-au-Prince Ma
Ville, a 52' film by Rigoberto Lopez
and Frantz Voltaire, will be shown in
a special Saturday afternoon screen-
ing at the Capitainerie. Frantz
Voltaire, a Haitian historian and
filmmaker who lives in Montreal,
will present the film and represent
UNESCO at the festival.

Stay tuned for complete details about
all films and festival events in the next
edition of The Weekly.

NEWS FROM THE ISLAND'S TRASH COLLECTION CENTER


Except for the collec-
tion of electric and
electronic equip-
ment, mandatory in France
since last November but
not yet in place in Saint
Barth, the island has practi-
cally solved all of its trash
disposal problems. This
was a long process, due in
part to the thousands of
miles to recycling centers
and the temptation to bur
or bury everything on the
island. But this was not the


choice in Saint Barth,
where eventually a solution
was found for each type of
trash collected. After years
of searching, the island has
found a source to accept a
stock of five tons of batter-
ies that has accumulated at
the trash center and will
soon be transported to
France. Iron and aluminum
are taken away regularly
and even earn a little mon-
ey for the island. Since
March 2006 when a glass-


crushing machine began to
operate in Saint Martin, the
recycling of glass-more
than 800 tons per year-is
viable and turns the glass
into sand used for construc-
tion. The residue left from
incineration of non-iron
metal, which looks like
black sand, is also recycled
when of good quality, and
used as a bottom layer for
roads or the municipal ten-
'. Y


taken to the incinerator and
burned for a specific time
to eliminate contamination.
Oils-motor or vegetal-
are also sent to France for
treatment. All that is left to
sort out is the electric and
electronic trash, an issue
the island hopes to solve in
the next few months.

situation would be vastly

Easter On
F rom a simple campfire in the
old days to today's village of
tents with electricity, television,
and even computers (of course..) '
camping on the beach during Easter
week has become a veritable institu-
tion in the West Indies. This is also
true in Saint Barth where residents
have for many years taken to the
beaches to celebrate, in local fashion,
the end of Lent and the resurrection
of Christ. To get a good spot, some
folks set out their stakes as early as
Palm Sunday, one week before East-
er, although they didn't complete their
campsites until Thursday, the day the

2 2 St Barth Weekly n¡116 WELCOME!The St. Barth Weekly is happy to be back for its fourth season. The Weekly is designed to help you put your finger on the pulse of the local community. Featuring an English rŽsumŽ of the top stories in our French newspaper, Le Journal de Saint Barth, as well as original articles in English, The St. Barth Weekly is the only completely English-language newspaper on the island. It is distributed on the island every week from November through the end of July. Our most exciting news is that each Friday, The Weekly is also available online at Saint Barth Online (www.st-barths.com), the wonderful web site launched in 1996, and now run by our friends Bruno and GŽraldine Colletas. Thanks to them, you can download every edition of The St. Barth Weekly, so that no matter where you are in the world, you can stay in touch with your favorite island. Territorial Council Elections In July It's official: the first election of Saint Barth's new territorial council will be held as expected on July 1 and 8, as we learned recently from the French overseas minister. This election marks the passage of Saint Barth from a town in Guadeloupe to an Overseas Collectivity detached administratively from Guadeloupe, to which Saint Barth has been attached sine 1878. The Territorial Council is the new assembly that will replace the current municipal council. A president, elected by the 19 members of this new council, will head the collectivity. The minister of the interior, Franois Baroin, is expected to sign the decree for the elections any day now.The police arrested a couple living in Vitet last Tuesday. After questioning at the gendarmerie in Gustavia, the man who is of Brazilian origin and who has lived in Saint Barth for 10 years, was placed in provisional detention in Guadeloupe. He is suspected of the stabbing death of Steve Bouffar Roop, who was found dead on Easter Monday in the neighborhood of Vitet. According to our information, a neighborhood quarrel was at the root of this drama. It was Easter weekend and like many young people on the island, Steve decided to have some fun: after a tour of the campsites at Toiny, he and a friend went to Gustavia to prolong the holiday. Along the way, he saw two teenagers who were hitchhiking, and stopped to pick them up and take them to their home in an apartment in a rental house in the neighborhood where the crime took place. The private road that leads to these houses is rather steep, but that didn't stop Steve from driving up it, in spite of the loud noise from his car whose muffler left a lot to be desired. The noise increased as Steve tried to get up the hill, waking up the neighbors. A first altercation broke out, followed by a second, in which the victimÑwho was drunk according to witnessesÑcame face to face with the suspected perpetrator who risks, if found guilty of involuntary homicide, up to 30 years in prison. "... the food, especially the fish, is fresh and reliably excellent." Town & Country "The food is excellent, the ambiance ultra hip, and the decor out of paradise. No wonder that L'esprit is the restaurant on the island where everybody goes."

Initiated by UNESCO in 1995, World Book Day marks its 11th anniversary on April 23, and will be celebrated for the second time in Saint Barth. Launched by a group of book lovers, and coordinated by Didier Bensa and Jean-Pierre Hennequet, the local event will take place on Sunday, April 15 from 9:00am to 1:00pm in front of the Wall House municipal museum. Various activities will be held to help promote the diffusion of books, and encourage everyone, and especially young people, to enjoy the pleasures of reading, and to salute the considerable contribution that authors make to the thought process and to universal culture. There will also be a book exchange, with books in French and in English. The idea is simple: you take your books on April 15 and trade or donate them. The bookstores will have stands with their special choice of books. Anumber of local authors will be present at the second annual International Book and Copyright Day, and their books will be availble for purchase at tables from local bookshops. These island scribes include Arlette Magras, Jeanne-Marie GrŽaux, Jean Belotti, Jean-Marie LŽdŽe, Serge Perez, and Jean-Pierre Ballagny. The roster also includes five authors from abroad: poet JeanMichel Maulpoix, director of the Writer's Center in Paris; author Ernest Pepin from Guadeloupe; painter-poet Luis Mizon from Chile; and writer Virgile NovarinaÑall four invited by the Week of Poetry which begins the next day. The final guest is children's book author/illustrator, Pascale Bougeault. Astand for children will include various activities including reading of stories. Local authors who are also invited to be on hand to answer questions that the public might ask about the art of writing. Celebrate Book Day in Saint BarthÉ Sunday, April 15! Book Day, second edition! St Barth Weekly n¡1160 0 3 3Like their counterparts in Saint-Martin, Guadeloupe, Martinique, French Guyana, French Polynesia, Saint-Pierre and Miquelon, the voters in Saint Barth will be called to the polls for the first round of votes in this year's presidential elections on Saturday, April 21 rather than on Sunday, April 22 as in metropolitan France. This advance voteÑa custom put into place for the 2004 European elections and the Constitutional referendum in May 2005Ñavoids having local voters cast their votes once the elections results are already decided in France. Unless someone backs out at the last minute, there will be 12 candidates on the ballot in this primary, compared to 16 on the same ballot in 2002. As in the rest of France, the election campaign opened last Monday, but was met with great indifference in Saint-Barth where the majority of the residents were enjoying the end of a sunny Easter weekend. At this time, the island has 4,766 registered voters, divided into four voting districts. This represents an increase of approximately 30% compared to the last presidential elections in 2002. The second round of voting will be held on Saturday, May 5.Fr ench Pr esidential Elections First Primary on April 21

0 0 4 4St Barth Weekly n¡116 From Palm Sunday through Easter Monday, the Pascal week was marked by numerous religious ceremonies, including the Stations of the Cross on friday April 6, symbolizing the Passion of Christ, from his death sentence until he was laid in his tomb. Catholic priest, Sylvere Numa, who was accompanied by almost 300 people, including the local altar boys, led this event. The Stations of the Cross began at the fire station, marking the first station or the moment when Jesus was condemned to death by Pontius Pilate, and continued through the thirteen stations, concluding at the same spot almost two hours later. During the entire procession, two men took turns carrying the heavy wooden crossÑ that stands eight feet tall and usually hangs above the altar in the Catholic church in Lorient.

0 0 6 6St Barth Weekly n¡116The twelfth edition of the St. Barth Film Festival, Cinema Cara•be, will be held from April 25-30, 2007. The program includes four feature films and two shorts in 35mm, as well as several video screenings, including De mŽmoire d'anciens , a film depicting the history of Saint-Barth. Saudade do Futuro , the opening night film, is a portrait of Sao Paulo, Brazil, as seen by the Nordestinos who move to the city in search of a better life in the economic and industrial heart of the country. "In looking at this large, bustling city, the filmmakers take a look at the modern world. It's an interesting mirror in which we see ourselves reflected," says Ellen Lampert-GrŽaux, co-director of the festival. The second evening's film, Rolling Family , is the Argentina version of Little Miss Sunshine : a road movie, this time the story of an 84 year-old grandmother invited to be the matron of honor at a wedding and the whole family sets out in an old camping car. The result is a humorous look at four generations of a family rolling through Argentina. Next up is The Harder They Come : This cult film was shown at the inaugural festival in 1996 and will be shown again this year. Why? "We wanted to pay homage to Perry Henzell, the Jamaican director of The Harder They Come who passed away in December 2006," notes LampertGrŽaux. It is also the 35th anniversary of this 1972 film which tells the story of a country boy (Jimmy Cliff) who moves to Kingston to try and realize his dream of becoming a singer. The film launched the popularity of reggae around the world, and is on the list of top ten Caribbean films. In the horror/fantasy film category is Pan's Labyrinth , the extremely successful film by Mexican director Guillermo del Toro. It premiered at the Cannes film festival in 2006, and was subsequently nominated for numerous Academy Awards, of which it won three: Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, and Best Make-Up, in addition to Golden Globe Awards and BAFTAAwards. "This is one film not to miss," says the festival co-director. In addition to these features that will be screened at Ajoe, there are also two 35mm short films on the program. The first is Il Žtait une foisÉ Sasha et DŽsirŽ , a film by CŽcile Vernant from Martinique, which will be shown before The Harder They Come . This 25-minute film tells the story of the love affair between Sasha and DesirŽ, who meet in France in the 1930s, as seen in a flashback as Sasha tells the story to her great grandchildren in Martinique. The second is Adolfo , a short feature of 43 minutes that will be shown at AJOE before the festival moves to Zion Gardens in Saline for an evening of music videos and live music for a closing night party on April 30. Adolfo is the first film by French filmmaker Sofi Delaage, and is the story of a taxi driver in Havana whose car is forever in need of repairÉ He is a Cuban who is torn between the desire to leave and the love he has for his crazy country. Video Evening at the Capitainerie On Sunday, April 29, the festival presents a special video evening in the large hall next to the Capitainerie on the main dock in Gustavia. The program begins with Lanmou a Bwa , a new documentary by Janluk Stanislas about the woodworkers from Pointe Noire in his native Guadeloupe. This will be followed by the world premiere of De mŽmoire d'anciens (Memories of Our Past), a 52minute film directed by Victoire Theismann and produced by TŽlŽmac Production, a Saint Barth production company run by Cedric Robion, who also is credited with the camera, sound, and editing of this film which takes a look at the history of Saint Barth through the memories of its oldtimers, from clandestine travel to Saint Thomas, working in the salt flats, and the modernization of the island to what is has become today. The festival will also play host to the Traveling Caribbean Film Showcase organized in conjunction with UNESCO. This is a collection of films from across the CaribbeanÑa total of 29 hoursÑ that will be seen throughout the year in various locations. The St. Barth Film Festival was selected as one of the locations, although it will not screen all of the films. Several short films for children will be shown in the island schools, and several of the documentaries, including Port-au-Prince Ma Ville , a 52'film by Rigoberto Lopez and Frantz Voltaire, will be shown in a special Saturday afternoon screening at the Capitainerie. Frantz Voltaire, a Haitian historian and filmmaker who lives in Montreal, will present the film and represent UNESCO at the festival. Stay tuned for complete details about all films and festival events in the next edition of The Weekly.St. Barth Film Festival, Number 12 !

St Barth Weekly n¡1160 0 7 7 NORA PSYCHIC HEALER HELPSSOLVESALLPROBLEMS REUNITESLOVERS, REMOVESNEGATIVEENERGY REVEALESFUTURE, ANSWERSALLQUESTIONFORONEFREEREADINGScall (001) 512-452-3812 Except for the collection of electric and electronic equipment, mandatory in France since last November but not yet in place in Saint Barth, the island has practically solved all of its trash disposal problems. This was a long process, due in part to the thousands of miles to recycling centers and the temptation to burn or bury everything on the island. But this was not the choice in Saint Barth, where eventually a solution was found for each type of trash collected. After years of searching, the island has found a source to accept a stock of five tons of batteries that has accumulated at the trash center and will soon be transported to France. Iron and aluminum are taken away regularly and even earn a little money for the island. Since March 2006 when a glasscrushing machine began to operate in Saint Martin, the recycling of glassÑmore than 800 tons per yearÑis viable and turns the glass into sand used for construction. The residue left from incineration of non-iron metal, which looks like black sand, is also recycled when of good quality, and used as a bottom layer for roads or the municipal tennis courts under construction in Saint Jean. Trash considered "infectious risk" has also been treated specially for the past two years. They are collected by the company, Top Service, either directly at the sourceÑ principally the hospital, the medical labs, the infirmary, and doctor's officesÑor in a special drop off near the infirmary. They are then taken to the incinerator and burned for a specific time to eliminate contamination. OilsÑmotor or vegetalÑ are also sent to France for treatment. All that is left to sort out is the electric and electronic trash, an issue the island hopes to solve in the next few months. The Fight Against Metal Slag Metal slagÑ which represents 250 tons each yearÑ is one of the hardest things to recycle. Yet if one gives it some thought, it is also something that can easily be avoided: it is primary created by cans that are not separated for recycling. If each resident of the island would separate cans from their household trash, the situation would be vastly improvedÉMe.di.um is pleased to present Half Craft, an exhibition of recent work by artist Ry Rocklen. Half Craft is Me.di.um's first sculpture exhibition and is on view sinco April 6 to May 5, 2007 in Gustavia, St. Barthelemy. The work featured in this exhibition is a continuation of Rocklen's interest in the renewal of found objects. The show will consist of eight to ten sculptures, which were constructed using materials salvaged from the junkyards and gutters of St. Barth by Rocklen during his residency. Rocklen has minimally altered the materials, giving these objects a second life as sculpture. Ry Rocklen lives and works in Los Angeles. He has had solo exhibitions at Zach Feuer (LFL) Gallery, New York; Dangerous Curve, Los Angeles; and Black Dragon Society, Los Angeles. His work was also featured in group exhibitions including the Rubell Family Collection, Miami; Baronian Francey, Brussels; Milliken Gallery, Stockholm; and Michael Janssen Galerie, Cologne.

This is also true in Saint Barth where residents have for many years taken to the beaches to celebrate, in local fashion, the end of Lent and the resurrection of Christ. To get a good spot, some folks set out their stakes as early as Palm Sunday, one week before Easter, although they didn't complete their campsites until Thursday, the day the administration and many local businesses shut their doors for the Easter holiday, a long weekend from Good Friday through Easter Monday. Among the top-en most popular spots for campers are the bay of Colomber, the beach at Flamands, the dunes of Saline, the flats of Grand Fond, and the sea grapes in Petit Cul de Sac. So what happens here? Games on the beach, card games, stereo systems, and even live music at some campsites, as well as the important question of food. For all, Easter is an occasion to taste local specialties such as crab pilaf, fresh fish, conch, tripe, Johnny cakes, and Easter cake, all washed down with run punch... As for the weather, the skies were smiling... After a long period of bad weather, Easter weekend was sunfilled with a calm sea perfect for nautical activities. Easter On The Beach!
