    Re: Anniversary Dinner

    L'Isola! Just my opinion, but Bagatelle is a "chain" restaurant (also in manhattan, miami that I know of), plus food is average, service can be pushy. L'Isola is a treat, plus a dark, candle-lit...

    Re: St Jean beach

    there may be zero basis to this - pardon my ignorance - but I remember saying the water on St Jean was very very salty while swimming just a couple weeks ago. Much saltier than other beaches

    3/25-4/8

    1. The island is dry, dry, dry. Hardly any rain during our 2-week visit, wreaking havoc on all the lushness I remember. Lush no more.
