Monday we had breakfast at 'home', as usual, ham and cheese omelette, with toast with yummy French jelly, mimosa and coffee. Doesn't get much better than that!
After, we packed a cooler and headed to Club Orient,stopping along the way at Super U for a couple of items. You can only get to Club O now via the road which also used to go to the butterfly farm, not from the road which goes behind the other former beach restaurants. We pulled up close to the new Perch Light (sorry, no pictures) and made the short walk to our chairs. Two chairs and an umbrella were $18, so we gave the guy $20. (Big spenders!!
) We were late arriving around 11:30, but got a chair on the front row without any problem. There were about 50 people on the beach. There was one big ship in, but they didn't arrive until 11:30 in port, so a few people straggled in from the ship, but not many. There were two places other than Club O serving food, Sun Beach and Chez Leandra, and a couple of other places renting chairs (only). We shared a burger and fries from the Perch Lite, which was actually quite good. The weather was beautiful, with a light breeze. The beach was lovely, with no seaweed, and a straight walkout into the water, with no issues. We spent several peaceful, lovely hours on the beach. It was all one could want from a day. The bathroom I guess is in a container way off to the left from the Perch Lite, but we didn't use it.
We went back home, and had planned on going out to dinner at Pineapple Pete. Fortunately, I looked at their menu online, to discover they are not open on Monday!! Huh. I think perhaps that is new since the hurricane?? In any event, we decided plan B was roasted Camembert! For a couple of years, we have done a roasted camembert glazed with honey, with roasted shrimp. Since we didn't have any baguette, I sent Eric for baguette and strawberries at Carrefour in Cupecoy. We enjoyed a lovely dinner with camembert, ham, shrimp, strawberries, pear, and grapes, and a lovely Piper Heidsek, which was supposed to be for our anniversary night, but I figured that wouldn't WORK with pizza!!
Thus endeth another successful day!
For the first time today, the weather looks iffy. We haven't had a drop of rain up to now, but with two ships in today, the weather doesn't look so good. We saw the Disney ship come in first
and then the Carnival ship
Photo editing software is GREAT, as the actual pictures were a lot darker than this.
I sent Eric out for quiche for breakfast, which he got from Zee Best, and NOT my favorite Le Suciere
We actually did not finish the bottle of Piper Heidsich last night, which was somewhat shocking. However, we did discover that several of the wines that we have purchased had this cute little 'button' top, instead of a cork, and that little button worked wonderfully to seal the champagne well enough to preserve the bubbles for the next morning!
The quiche was OK, but I thought had too much crust. Wow, to have such problems!!
We had not yet been to Mullet and we knew that Rosie does not cook if there are no ships in, so we picked Tuesday to go so that we could get her ribs and chicken. Just as we headed out the door to get into our car, it started raining, so we decided to take a trip to Cupecoy Carrefour for a couple of items, and to see what the weather would look like.
Going through Maho, we saw the see-through buildings
And Casino Royale
Someone had posted that CR would be opening in June. I assume maybe they meant June 2019, as it is a LONG way away.
Starz is also a LONG way away,
and that sign there is a LIE, when it says that there are table games at the Dunes, which is at Alegria. We went by there Tuesday night and there were NO table games at the Dunes.
The sight of Ocean Club was absolutely stunning.
The Blue Mall had some plywood up on the top floor
Coming back from Carrefour, we went down by the Towers so that we could take some pictures for Pat.
We asked the guy at the guard shack when the Towers would be reopening and he said that he had no idea.
From here, it was on to Mullet, but I will need to do another thread, to get in the pictures...
To be continued.
