I'm in Oyster Pond finally having been delayed by the late tropical storm.The grocery is NOT at the Moorings/Sunsail base. The road from the airport through Cole Bay is a disaster. I would recomend Grand Marche and Cost You Less ( a Costco clone) for provisioning. They are both on Bush road. You can take a taxis from your hotel - the drivers usually will wait for you. I would plan on eating on the boat most nights. By the way - we have what they call the Christmas winds where the strngth may be greater than 20 knots each day. This week has been great with less than 3-6 foot seas in the passage to St. Barth's and 10-15 knot winds.
