Day 13 - Started with a little beach time, followed by lunch at St Maarten Yacht Club. Split their Chicken Caesar Wrap. Pic is of my half. Then back to el Zafiro. This almost "picture perfect" view is from our balcony. Does it get ANY BETTER than this????? Plane watchers can take in airport activities from the viewing porch on the front side of the building. Had been meaning to and just hadn't stopped to check out Tanja's and Michael's, The Pub - SXM. They did a great job. They have a small snack menu, but it's just perfect for a beer or two. Stopped by Red Piano to enjoy the music of Susan and Cliff. Love their music.

Bitterballen is a Dutch "meatball". It's made with meat as the base, then a roux type mixture from beef stock. The thicken product then is rolled in bread crumbs and deep fried. They are wonderful. Karacter used to have the on the menu.

I'm thinking it may be an acquired taste. I had them once at Karakter and did not care for them in the least! Different strokes..
