Just returned last night from 2 weeks. Here's the Reader's Digest version of my (currently very mellow) thoughts.<br><br>Weather perfect<br><br>Travel prices best they have been in many years<br>Stay on Dutch Side (Belair Beach) but electrical strike on French side would have been an inconvenience if we had stayed on French side. Most days we were there electric was on only at night on Fr. side except New Year's Eve when they turned it off at 9PM til about same time on 1/1/02.<br><br>Missed the fireworks but appreciate the results of a safer New Years holiday.<br><br>Lobster everywhere at great prices<br><br>Orient beautiful as ever, some days very crowded.<br><br>Met some TTOL folks this year for the 1st time. Hope to do that again next year.<br><br>SXM is back<br><br>Tom<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by Administrator on 1/22/02 04:42 PM.</EM></FONT></P>
