My Post-Irma Trip to St. Martin: Part 9 – Video of Friar’s Bay and Baie Rouge, Including Chez Raymond

This post is the ninth in a series of posts I am writing about my first post-Irma trip to Saint Martin. Here is a link to the first (Anticipation)second (Arrival)third (Orient Beach)fourth (Volunteering)fifth (Grand Case including Calmos)sixth (Grand Case including Lolos)seventh (Grand Case including Piazza & Rainbow), and eighth (Pinel Island) posts in the series. All of them include video I filmed of the island. 

December 28, 2017 – You may have noticed that I didn’t publish much this past weekend, and there’s a good reason. I was in Chicago, where it was absolutely freezing cold, doing work for the other website I co-own and operate. It’s a Chicago Cubs site called Cubs Insider. I split my time between working on that website and SXM Strong.

Now that I’m back home in sunny (and warm) Arizona, I wanted to get some more video published from my recent trip to Saint Martin. I still have a lot more content from the trip to publish, so be sure to check back frequently and be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Today let’s take a look at Friar’s Bay and Baie Rouge, both on the French side of Saint Martin. As you’ll see in the videos below, both beaches look incredible and ready to welcome visitors. Most of the beaches on the island look great, are clean and, the best part, have a ton of room to spread out and relax to enjoy the peace and serenity.

I fell in love with the island of Saint Martin the first time I visited to celebrate my 40th birthday in May of 2009. Since then, I've spent most birthdays there, and have visited countless other times getting to know this wonderful place and the friendly locals that make it so special. I adore the culture, the people, the community, and the beauty of this stunning island. SXM Strong is a website that I started to support humanitarian relief efforts following Hurricane Irma. There was no plan, it just evolved as I witnessed the devastation that Irma caused the island and the huge need to communicate and disseminate information about what had happened and how people could help support this island and its people.
