Day 1B - Day 1A started in St Louis on Thursday and ended in San Juan thanks to weather, fuel, and Delta. Day 1B started in San Juan and ended in SXM. Rented a car as usual from firstname.lastname@example.org She did an "above the call" effort waiting to deliver our car. Frig was stocked also as usual by Jeannie at www.shopndropgrocerysxm.com
This first week + we're staying at Villa Cleavage. An Air BnB, owned by Topper and his daughter. It's high up the hill above Simpson Bay Resort. First meal was at St Maarten Yacht Club. Our favorite, Grouper Fingers($12.). Served by friendly, first year server Desiree(sp) . Thankfully, Brian has changed back to his original receipe so the crust was wonderfully crisp. A short(losing) stop at Casino Royale in Maho. They have free valet parking which is handy as we were also stopping by Hole In The Wall to hear Bob Baron singing along with Ronnie Santana on Guitar. Had an interesting conservation with a "slightly toasted" Chief Engineer from one of the big sailing vessels anchored in the lagoon.
Pics are on Facebook at moment. Working on moving.
