This our first time staying in oyster pond area since Irma. Very quiet except for restaurants. Been coming to island and oyster pond area for 10 years prior to Irma. Never had to make a reservation at a restaurant in oyster pond nor in Simpson Bay for that matter. We stay in both place for couple weeks each in the past. Restarting that tradition after Covid and Irma. Any hoo. We went to KKO on Orient Beach. Gave Carl, now the bartender at KKO, an Eagles hat for his collection at the bar. In September last year, we noticed he didn’t have an Eagles hat. Beautiful day not hot a breeze but not very windy. No sarragasum in water and very little on shore. We wanted to go to Big Fish. The guy who owned Canoa now owns Big Fish. Put in a reservation and they were booked! Never happen before in any restaurant in SXM. Got.a reservation at Oasis. Very crowded. My wife had linguine and clams. I had Cod fish. Again wait staff and kitchen overwhelmed. Long wait my wife’s meal was deemed good my cCod was overcooked. Miss the good old days. Why is so quiet during the day and at night it is nuts in Oyster pond. Six less restaurants,!
