    Morning robbery!

    While eating breakfast this morning at Le Jardin (fluffiest scrambled eggs on the island!), I briefly stood to greet a friend . . . whereupon a very pretty (red & blue) bird brazenly swooped down and stole the bacon from my plate! An LOL moment for everyone in the restaurant. The owner laughingly brought me a plate of freshly prepared bacon.

    so, early bird gets the worm, but pretty bird gets the bacon.

    Had a similar experience in Kenya with a baboon grabbing a roll of my plate while having lunch!

    I had a similar experience at Andy’s Hideaway when a Charming tourist took frites off my plate!

    Love the breakfast story, Dennis! And, wholeheartedly agree on the best fluffy scrambled eggs on island. Very generous portions, too!
