The response for this wine tasting was great! Sadly I am closing the registrations now as I have 24 participants and won't be able to accommodate any more! I will post some pictures and soon will organize the April one !
Thank you all for your response and hopefully see you at the next one if you are not attending the one in March
Definitely planning to spend a couple of nights on JVD so thank you both for the Abe's recommendation. We tried Corsair's a few years ago and were very pleased with their lobsters too.
Would really love to be able to cook up a couple myself too though. Any ideas on where I might be able to purchase a couple of live ones in the BVI or if a fishing guide can catch em for me, per my original questions?
Thanks again for all comments! I looked at Abe's website. Some great pics of plated lobsters! Makes my mouth water!
The EC145 helicopter flew over to St Barth. 3 people got off and went into the terminal building. 10-15 minutes later, 3 people, perhaps the same 3 people, came out and re-boarded the EC145. The EC145 took off, and probably returned to SXM.
Back to jrr or whomever for the rest of the story.
A good non-fiction book to read if you're considering a visit to Curaçao (do it!) is "Curaçao For 91 Days", by Michael Powell & Jürgen Horn. They write a travel blog about their travels around the globe where they spend 91 days in various places living among the locals. Published in July 2016 and available on Amazon. Also available on Kindle and in Kindle Unlimited for borrowing, if you are a member. Lots of good tips on beaches, restaurants, and historical places to visit. Good stuff!
Unless you draw more than 6' the Setting Point mooring field is easy. Even if you touch bottom its very soft mud. At slow speeds it will not cause damage and you can drive out of the low spots. Or so I have heard.
My experience off Grandeur of the Seas (Royal Caribbean) on Sunday February 18 was the same. I heard no "warnings" of any kind but for some references to the destruction that Irma had caused. The passengers I talked with about their experience on the island expressed no complaints about vendors or anything else. To the contrary, what I heard was generally positive about the people that they met or interacted with on the island. Of course, I only talked with a very small percentage of the total that went ashore.
We intended going to the early March one at the Trellis Bay Market and Grill. Their website said it was on the 2nd March (even though the full moon was on the 1st).. We got there (along with a number of other boats) on the 2nd. Guess when the party was......! Might be worth giving the venue a call to make sure when it is!
