    Andrea, I was going to harass you about the culotte thing...then I realized that since I knew exactly what you were talking about I could not say anything....
    I also have never been to Mathilde's, but have been to LeDome several times for Sunday Brunch and have worn a tee-shirt and shorts and have never been approached about my attire...

    Hose, what are hose ???? Wore them in my younger years, then I discovered pants ......what a revelation !!! I figure my husband sees my legs at home, do I don't need to flash them out in public....I do wear capris though, just to show a little leg...LOL

    Well my suitcase just got lighter! No hose, no pants, and no pj's. Leaves lots of room for the bling.

    PJs i forgot to mention PJs.
    for women...........a high neck flannel nightgown LLBean
    for men.......... flannel long sleeve and long pants (cowboy print or spiderman)
    just funnin ya
    a lightweight cotton nighty is perfect


    if you think one or 2 bathing suits are sufficient, double that number.

    toiletries........... sunblock varying spf 30, 15, 8. and the usual other toiletries that one would bring.

    Beach towel.............the surf club and all of the other resorts supply beach towels.

    this is so much more informative than the debate isn't it?

    Much funner than the debate. The word of the evening...fundamental.

    I will have to go bathing suit shopping I was only going to bring 2. Think I can lose 15 pounds in 15 days? Is there any good bathing suit shops there? Unless I lose the 15 pounds I guess I will the thong behind also.

    Really, only bring half of what you think you'll need! No long pants and nothing fancy! OK... so an extra coupla swim suits and flip flops!

    pack an ipod, cds or mp3 audiobook

    if you like to read on the beach.........
    instead of bringing a book, bring an audiobook on CD or MP3 or even cassettes
    and listen with an ipod or a cd or cassette walkman

    sherry from visitaruba got me hooked many years ago
    on audiobooks

    paul and i have not read a book in years.............but we have listened!

    listening to a book while on the beach is so much more enjoyable than reading. your eyes are able to wander
    if you are listening, you will NOT miss any of the sites.

    try it you may get hooked too

    Audio books that is an awesome idea. It has been years since I have listened to them. Do local library's have them for ipods? Last time I checked one out they were on cassette tape. At least it wasn't an 8-track.

    I always need at least three.
    One I am wearing, one which is dry and one which is damp.
    Seems because of the humidity even in the room with air conditioning they take longer to dry.
    Put it outside to dry? Watch it blow away in the wind ...

    Bathing suits

    Or, you leave it outside to dry and it rains during the night!
