We had a good New Years Eve. Somehow we were able to stay up late enough to see the fireworks. St Martin has a LOT of fireworks to please the tourists. From our balcony overlooking Simpson Bay we were able to see at least six different displays, all going off at the same time!
The closest was Simpson Bay, just below where we live. Then there were two out towards the airport (Maho Beach and Cole Bay) which we could clearly see. And there were 3-4 going off on the French side of the Bay, near Marigot. These were farther away, but we could see them clearly.
We had to keep turning our heads to see all the different displays going off. Of course, they were not nearly as good as Chris can do (and there was no music accompanying the fireworks), but it was quite a good show.
It was so good, we forgot to take pictures!
