40 minutes ago Second Saturday here. [by RonDon]
After 3 large evening meals in Grand Case, we decided to return to lunches being our larger meals. Today we ate at O’Plongeoir in Marigot located across from the yacht club. 12:10and we secured the last table.

We both had the Red snapper special from their board. Delicious! It was served with salad & rice. Too late I realized this place has the best French fries. So I guess we’ll just have to return another day. With 2 ginger beers bill came to $48.

I had argued I wanted to go to Marks place and hubby wanted lagoonies. I argued I wasn’t sure either was open for lunch. Traffic jam made the decision for us.

Now we’re lounging on our lanai listening to waves and eating Etna Rhum Raisin ice cream.

1 hour ago Thursday, Friday and Wednesday dinner [by RonDon]
Wednesday we at at le Bistronome which I think I already posted

Thursday dinner with friends at Ocean 82. Even though we had rsvp we felt rushed. Got the only empty table stuck in a corner. Food was great! We all started with Caesar salads followed by beef cheeks in wine sauce served with creamy, cheesy rice. Desert was for hubby and I their delicious light leman concoction. Sort of a thick lemon mousse shaped like a lemon. Shared a bottle of Bordeaux . $154. Per couple. Too high I think.

Friday dinner Auberge Gormand. Romantic, table for two against wall so we could survey everything. Free Champagne cocktail to start. Hubby had another Caesar salad and said it was the best so far. I had cream asparagus soup with a large scallop floating in it.

I had duck breast in wine sauce with veggies and mash potato. Hubby had veal chop which he said was cooked to perfection. He knows he has to watch his red meat intake so this will be the last he has this trip. We each had a glass of Shiraz wine.

We passed on dessert but out came a cream puff stuck with a sparkler for our wedding anniversary. Auberge was just opening 43 years ago and was the first place we ate on our honeymoon. $135.

Grand Case was crowded and restaurants were turning people away. Moral is make reservations.

2 hours ago SLU Grocery & Beverage options? [by jphart]
Heading to St Lucia soon for a sailing trip. Looking for pre-trip order options. Leaving from Moorings base at Botany Bay.

I’ve found the Massy store, but don’t see an order form we could do in advance. Doesn’t show large quantities like cases of beer, drinks, large jugs of water, etc. I know prices are EC, but booze prices are just so so.

Any insight as to best stores to order in advance? We’d pickup fresh items the morning of start, but have found it better to order the bigger non perishable items in advance and delivered to the boat. Thanks for the heads-up!

6 hours ago Day 3 on island [by eilandmens]
Still at Princess Heights. Breakfast on balcony. Off to orient beach. Saw Karl and Cedric at KKO-Both doing fine. Another beautiful day at beach same breeze a little Saragassum not much. Went to Grand Case for dinner at Le Bristronome next to Le Pressoir. Grand case was packed. I had veal stew which I loved. My wife said her filet of beef was good. It is a small place 24 seats. The chef is in a small kitchen that is open. He is the only one cooking. A neat experience- like a small bistro in Paris.

Yesterday at 09:12 PM 2 planes on runway at 3:30 [by jeepers]
Anybody see the 2 planes facing each other on runway at 3:30 today? American heading down slowly from beach end & KLM heading up runway toward airport. Then American took off over beach. I didn't have volume on beach cam to hear ATC. First I've seen that. American looked ready to take off from beach but didn't.

Yesterday at 08:37 PM Sportfishing Recommendations [by travelguy714]
Hello. Any preferred fishing charter boats for a half day while on island? Not sure what is around the area first week of May, but would love to snag a wahoo. I came across 4REEL, and will be staying on the French Side, but open to referrals. (I know some crews are much better than others where I live...) Thanks in advance.

Yesterday at 02:52 PM Day 2 on is,and [by eilandmens]
Staying at Princess Heights. Very quiet for most part occasional construction noise from old Westin. We had an in room continental breakfast from hotel at $10a person. It includes 4 French pastries 🥐 2 yogurt, coffee, OJ butter jelly an tea. Not bad. Went to Orient beach at KKO. Karl the bartender whom we have know for many years was off duty that day as was Cedric the beach chair guy. We will see them tomorrow. Beach was great. A little sarragasum on beach none in water. A lot of sarragasum at Coco beach just down the way though. Nice stiff breeze at 17mph some overcast but a great beach day.
Ate at L’Oasis. My wife had a raw fish combo; I had the duck. The raw fish platter was a little tasteless according to my better half. My duck was very tough. Hoping for better dinner tonight at Le Bistronome in GC.

I would like to know if I should plan holidays on St. Martin and Anguilla during end of June (23.) and beginning of July (06.) or should I skip because of rainy and stormy weather?
Can anybody give me general information about weather and sea temperature during June and July?
Thanks a lot and greetings!

Yesterday at 01:41 AM Ferry Reservations Still Needed? [by Marilyn]
Are reservations still needed for the ferry from Charlotte Amalie to Road Town? We're arriving with a party of eight on Thursday, April 20. If our flights are on time there's a chance that we could make the 2 pm ferry with Native Son, but if the flights are a little late we'll end up on the 4 pm Smith's ferry. I'd like to keep the option open for the earlier ferry and not buy tickets until we arrive.

Is that a big risk? Have the ferries been running full lately?
