..has gone too fast but I will be back. A few funny /crazy/annoying observations. Things we need: Some great old style beach bars like "Patricia's" in Smuggler's Cove..no more Stanley /Tony's/Bomba Shack although Quito's beach bar is good with Tracy and Bella but not always open. "Stout's Lookout" has good food and drinks and a great view but "Nicole's" in Brewer's no longer has their killer burgers.
We dont need anymore places going waaaay upscale..we have enough already! A great Thai restaurant here would do really well IMHO ( and others). We really need the police to clamp down on the crazy , helmetless, licenseless scooter/motorbike riders..makes me wonder why we even have police stations in CGB and West End when you follow these kids doing wheelies half a mile from the copshop....and they need to reel in a few unsavoury characters threatening $$ spending folks( and the cops know EXACTLY who they are).
Pleasant surprises..the amazing folks at The Sugar Mill who treat me like family every day I am here..I cant thank them enough. New friends I have made. Jason and Tiffany who help all of us.The great food and love from Gene and Robin at " Gene's" in Manuel Reef..wonderful home cooked cuisine and lovely folks.
Things we REALLY dont need ..a $33 hamburger..things we do need ..the terrific shrimp roti at Indigo House..along with other great dishes and fine beverages from Vashaal...and that Thai place!! One Love to all of you and I'll be back in late October early November and most of you know how to find me!I hope others will follow up on this with their opinions..

And this is why we love our weeks on Anegada. You know what you are going to get and it has changed very little in 10 years.

So sad to hear Nicole's is no longer serving their hamburgers. They were fantastic! Any idea why?

Probably didn't build the grill back after Irma.

We will be seriously updating the website soon as the ground floor rental has been completely renovated thanks to Irma. But they are building a brand new villa right next to us so we have been doing very limited , and very reasonably priced, rentals..but got a couple of great reviews on Trip Advisor. When the buildings finished and daytime peace has returned we ill be back in full swing and offering special deals to all TTOLers...

Came down to my villa on Virgin Gorda for a month, mainly to get some things done. So for the first 2 weeks Pam and I were really sick, very tired and basically did nothing. Have as of now not gone into the pool or the sea. No eating out. Basically just staying at the villa and doing a lot of sleeping. Starting to improve but still very tired. Repaired several mechanical items as well as preparing to do a bit more building of some out buildings. Hopefully our health improves enough so when my daughter comes down end of the month we will be able to enjoy their company.

Sounds exactly like how I just felt with my second bout of covid.
