Oh, for sure!! I remember when his daughter was on the front cover of the AA magazine. Anyone know, is Julie still the chef at Loterie Farm?

Not sure if it was already mentioned but we loved our dinners around the pool at Paradise Cafe along with the ornate wicker chairs my girls thought of as thrones, and those beautiful parrots on the porch outside the restaurant who seemed to spend as much time on top of their cages as they spent in them. Memories, memories.....

We are still building our memories since 2012. Chairs, umbrella's with free drink at Pedro's off the cruise ship. Wandered down to Perch to try their drinks. They were very good. After that our first swim out to The Club O float. Been twice since on a stay vacation. 8 months 3 weeks till the next. Seems to me the road we took into orient beach by taxi, was a lot more dirt, even in 2012. I think they dropped us off somewhere on the north end of the beach.

I wasn't that fond of hauling my carry on bags up that staircase to get there, but the view and the food at Cafe Juliana were worth it!!

Every year when we stopped in to see Neil either at SBB or BBB he would yell at me for still having a watch on. Watch was a must when I was still working and a hard habit to break even on vacation. Now, retired, I never have one on.

I remember Narcissa from Don Carlos. She was a sweet lady. We actually ran into her brother randomly on our only Aruba vacation in 1999. Small world. Wonder what became of her.

Our first vacation trip to the Caribbean was in 1994 to the old Dawn Beach hotel. We loved it , planned to return. Then Hurricane Luis came along and changed Dawn beach forever.

Aanother great find for us was LePavillion Restaurant in Simpson Bay back in the early 80's. Simpson Bay then was nothing like it is today and I think this was the only restaurant along the beach with the exception of Mary's Boon Guesthouse. There used to be some sort of construction plant, perhaps a cement plant? - and you turned in by it on the right just before the old bridge, and eventually as you snaked around back there you would come across the restaurant. The food was wonderful as was the service and it was definitely a favorite. We think it was destroyed in a hurricane but I'm not sure if that. So much of what we first knew on the island has been lost and so much new has taken its place.

The Food Center
Portofinos on Front St.
Pinocchio's also on Front St.
The original restaurant at Mary's Boon
The Frigate along with all the other Mullet Restaurants
Marks in Cul de Sac
Bobbys Marina in P'berg and the Seafood Galley Restaurant there
All of Dawn Beach Resort and Mullet Bay Resort
Midass Muffler at the foot of the hill heading to P'berg
Risdons take out stand and Risdons Ice Cream Shop by the pier in P'berg
The Parrott place
Some of the earlier radio personalities
The Philipsberg Rib Place - in P'berg and in Simpson Bay
Bertines up in the French Hills of LaSavanne
And the phone company in P'berg where you went to place a call home....
Lynettes in Simpson Bay

Along with so much more whose names and specifics I can't remember......

Those were the good old days on SXM that a few of us here were fortunate enough to have been a part of. And I can only imagine what my kids and Grands will recall as their "good old days" memories some day down the road......
