Yes, this is one of THOSE trip reports. Turn away now…sorry. There will be Food Porn. Don’t worry, it’s safe for work.

We did not do ½ of what we had planned to stuff into 8 days. Guess it’s because we know that we will be back at the end of October. wink

We limed and stuffed ourselves. Weather cancelled two sailing excursions. They still turned into beach days, so life is good!

Caught up with good friends, though not as many as we had wished. The weather kept us from sailing to Anguilla.

This was our fourth trip post Irma.

Delta down and back. Much more comfortable seat than AA, reliable schedule, no problems at all.

Arrival was on a Sunday and was hot standing outside with the arrival line snaking outside and then through the area inside the airport which they have opened. Oh well, we were in SXM.

Got our car from Lesley (Kenny’s Auto) and got to say hello to his wife as well, as he had 3 customers on our flight. Paperwork and off to check in! Dumped the luggage, stashed things in the safe and it was a walk to Driftwood to get our first rum punches and eat some pizza! Watching the dumba**ses hanging on the fence…..stupid is as stupid does.

Lovely view from the pool to Maho at La Terrasse

The gardens on the roof

This just cracked me up in the yacht club parking lot….

Yacht Club drunken pancakes and Eggs Benny

Next day was beach day at El Zafiro and a lunch of kabobs w/ the blue bottle (you will see this in many pictures…lol)

[Linked Image]

Hubbies birthday dinner was at Sal e Pepe! Service was excellent. Super attentive. Cannot say enough great things about this place, and I was sad the new marina location wasn’t open yet.

Carpaccio and baby calamari in a light Sicilian sauce

[Linked Image]

Hubby said it was the best he has ever had

[Linked Image]

Risotto topped with caviar

Fresh deep-water red snapper from Saba prepared Sicilian style

Chef Davide

Breakfast on the balcony. Having the Maho Market directly beneath us was dangerous. Their breakfast buffet has hash browns, bacon, johnny cakes! We cooked and supplemented with items from the buffet.

A day at Orient, planted our bodies at Kakao (or KKÔ). Two chairs and umbrella were $20

Picture limit! We shall continue with Part 2 anon…

Isn’t the rooftop garden beautiful there? We didn’t see it up close and personal but enjoyed the view from our suite at LaPlage.


Respectfully,

pat

The bar was open, though not busy at all. I actually did not even get one drink there.

Was supposed to be early June, but they are still waiting for some things from Italy.
