Image of the Week, September 27 2010: St. Barthelemy Takeoff

 (Kathryn Wagner)

This week I wished to share with you an image from St. Barthelemy in the French West Indies. It is currently part of a series being featured on Sundayed, a website devoted to provocative weekend reading. I felt this image to be particularly relevant to St. Barths, as the island is known for it’s heart stopping landings into Gustaf III airport

St. Barth’s is a winter haven, a refuge for the French and Francophiles alike. Unique in it’s infrastructure and distance from it’s mother country, a visit allows a glimpse into a condesed segment of French territorial living. Known for it’s haute cuisine and star-studded beaches, St. Barth’s is a wonderful destination. Many people visit annually for the Cinema Caribes film festival, which I highly recommend.
