She's saying the exact opposite, that La Playa isn't the same without Bruno there.

Thanks for the info Mike. It's been quite a while since I was in Greenwich so I wasn't sure but figured I'd give it a go.

OK, since a discussion of that topic will take us nowhere good, will end this one here.

A light at the end of the tunnel... It would be great to see Club Orient rebuilt. Hopefully Captain Oliver’s resort and the marina will be next.

WOW. SXM is very lucky that they did not take out the bridge. What a disaster that would have been for the island. Sounds like hopefully insurance will take care of the yacht club.

If it’s on one ticket book it and go. If you miss the connection they will rebook you and you might be due compensation. Even if your not due compensation a polite email to their complaint department might get them to throw 10,000 miles at you. Don’t be afraid if they are rebooking you to request the next flight regardless of operating airline. They will auto rebook on their partners but you might get them to move you to a earlier flight on another carrier.

Coming soon / stealth opening - David Baysden of Driftwood Dave's and Shambles restaurants has opened a new business in Coral Bay. Pending final inspection and permits (any day) he is opening "Meals to Go" in the Isola building next to Dolphin Market that contains Jolly Dog, Zemi jewlery, and Salty Mongoose pizza. He has fresh local fish, shrimp/prawns, steaks, pulled pork, prepared meals, and specials including buttermilk brined fried chicken. All of his raw food is vacuum bagged and frozen as is the pulled pork.

I'll post more when he is officially open. He is a long time successful restaurateur and a solid guy. This will be a great addition for cruisers and those of us living here.

Cheers, RickG

We had heard that Carole was managing La Playa beach bar and restaurant when my husband last reached out to her. I'll have to ask him how long ago that was but definitely after Bruno had left.

Carib, I forgot to add other pluses and minuses. On the minus, the street is pretty narrow, cars are parked in different areas, and people dart in and out, so it is hard to travel very quickly down the road. On the other hand, apparently there is a law that says if you are on a scooter , it is strictly prohibited to run it at a consistent throttle to keep it at a decent speed, and you are required instead to fully rev the throttle, then back off, then full rev, so that it sounds like WAW eh eh eh WAW eh eh eh WAW eh eh eh. Surprisingly, the noise, especially late at night, does not have the same soothing effect of the waves hitting the beach. On the plus side, it is great fun either sitting in the balcony, or even on the beach, and watch the planes come in to land at Grand Case . It is not like Maho, the sounds are pretty quiet, mostly smaller prop planes and a few larger planes, no big jets like at PJA, and it is interesting to see them as they try to straighten out on their approach, as they come in low over town.

It is free but a donation to the Red Cross might be nice.

No. Must be nasal.

Get an antigen test. Most place can get results in 15 minutes. In Jersey they are everywhere/ I can imagine there must some in Long island. They are $75. Can be reimbursed by most health insurances.

Charter Boat Reviews and Questions
Yesterday at 06:06 PM
The boat we are chartering is a 2020, so if they put tens of thousands of dollars into it, hopefully, it will be in good shape next month.

Well I know there is one cruise we will not reschedule so that is one lost. We have rescheduled everything else...for the end of this year or next year. I think we some of the lucky ones...we have not lost any money.
