And we used to walk to Kim Sha from SBYC and there was nothing in the way!

The good old days for us was way back in 2012 when we arrived by cruise ship for the day and went to Orient Beach not knowing much about it. We got a free rum punch and our chair rental from Pedro's, and then one from Perch, which was an eye opener! We returned for 7 days last April and will be back again this year! Seems like a lot changed just since 2012.

Yep! We are the same way. Hysterical comments. You should write a book!

Those of us that share your memories used to laugh when people referred to the older folks being "invisible".
Now it's our turn to go unnoticed.
Prior to my first visit to Orient Beach,the girl giving me directions asked if I was going there to "see nude" or "be nude". I responded, "both".
In recent years I keep expecting people to offer me $ to cover up on OB.

A few good memories –

Evening walk along Front Street after rijsttafel at the Wan Yang Doll and feeling perfectly safe.

Lunch at Sam’s while amusing ourselves watching the cruise ship passengers lugging their cheap booze back to the ship and being please with ourselves by not being part of it – that was when there were enough cruisers to be interesting but not enough to be obnoxious.

Chatrou stew at Mark’s in Cul de Sac.

Orient Beach when the only things there were Club O, Pedro’s, and a few souvenir shacks at the entrance. Or our first visit there, when there were literally only 2 other people on the entire beach.

Oh I had forgotten Wan Yang Dahl. Now I recall waiter asking us how many plates and hubby, confused, said we're just two. He then offered 10 or 20 and hubby said we're not THAT hungry. Settled for the smaller count and enjoyed every bit. When hubby asked what are we eating I said don't ask, enjoy.

Long before the internet, we would hike over to Happy Bay on our February vacation and be the only couple on the beach the whole day. Just us and the goats on the hillside.Danny's shelter wasn't even there.

When we stayed at Great Bay hotel we opted for "Mountain View" not because it cost less but because we'd sit on our balcony and watch the goats climb down the hill and across the cars in the parking lot.

Didn't take much to amuse us then after a long day at the beach.
