Re: Enough Doom and Gloom - Remember the Good Old Days

We remember not seeing any car rentals on island and when you took a cab you told the driver when to pick you up and that you'd pay upon return. Cab was always there.

Remember when Grand Case restaurants had only two seatings 7:30 & 9pm and everyone smoked inside.

West Indies Tavern (now Guavaberry shack) and their .99 happy hour.

Little Bay Beach & Racket Club (pre Divi) a family owned place with a casino, several rooms of different music venues and great food.

Great Bay hotel before Sonesta bought it.

Back Street bakery with delights to equal Sarafina's. Back street was dirt then.

Locals selling wears at the end of the dock.

No tv's. No stop lights, only traffic mirrors. But hardly any traffic.

Remember being able to hike to Pic Paradise with no fear.

Dirt roads on the Dutch side and paved on the French side.

Marigot bustling with shops & people.

To name a few good memories.
