    My second language lament as well. Spanish was my foreign language and I do use it on occasion back home in NY, BUT NOT HERE. I could use some Italian phrases for special evenings at L'Isola however. And I do hear Portuguese in many places.

    Villa lunch. Leftover La Gloriette pizza and tuna. (The pizza went quickly with only a piece of a piece remaining for the photo.). Had to bust out some meat, cheese and bread to fill the void.

    Of course! Final night on the island.....L'Esprit. Maybe we'll see you there?

    I hope hope they got our reservation via the Access site. We've had mixed results. Les Bananiers had no record of our rezzy (via the Ala Catre site). Cote Port said they didn't have a record of our rezzy even though I had an email saying it was confirmed. Santa Fe didn't have a record of our rezzy when we showed up, but a little bit later David (?) came to our table to apologize. He got the request on Wednesday when they were closed and forgot to do anything about it!!

    Palate cleanser. Grapefruit flavor and more of a shaved ice feel than sorbet.

    Re: Random photos from late July/early Aug

    L'Esprit dinner continued... with more main courses.....

    Sweetbreads. If truth be told, the ones at Santa Fe were better. Creamier and a larger portion, plus a decadent sauce.

    Re: Random photos from late July/early Aug

    Thanks Tim! Travel went very well. We arrived into Dulles a half an hour early and due to a longer than usual wait for the weird Dulles-shuttle thing (which I mistakenly thought they had gotten rid of) our bags were waiting for us (checked for free from SBH.....I didn't realize that was still an option).

    I'll also put in a plug for Global Entry. If we didn't have it, chances are that we'd still be in line!

    A word of advice you probably won't take ..show the kids other islands....so they see it's a great big wide world with many great places ....it opened up our daughters eyes wide ....and now she is anxiously looking forward to our upcoming trip to Anegada ....because she now knows St Barts is not the only great option ...FWIW

    And three whole frozen scallops at L.espirt eh ?....wow....living large LOL

    Thanks Mike, good adivice. I've never heard of Anegada but I'll look into it.

    As for your final line, I really don't understand your constant need to get a judgemental dig in, but I'm quite sure if you had those scallops without knowing they weren't Mike R worthy, you would have loved them.

    I avoid the dreaded departure blues by always having my next two trips planned, both with deposits paid. It eases the immediate pain.

    Thank you SO much, Bart, for all these wonderful photos. Every single one of your meals look amazing and tasty! No doubt you and the fam made some wonderful memories that will be talked about for years to come. It was nice to see all four of your smiles as you passed by Oubli in the Mini.

    Kevin - for the first time ever, we have the next trip planned, but it still hurts.

    Missy - good seeing for that brief second. Like I told Amy, I regret not working harder in getting together somewhere but time seemed to slip away so fast and we had a "no real plan" plan. Next time!!

    That's the best kind of plan! Which way is today's wind blowing? Where is the sargassum? Which online menu caught my eye, or which walk-by aroma turned my head around? Which memorable restaurant haven't I dined in lately? What would I like for today's lunch/dinner view? All are good inputs for a "no real plan" plan, and there are many more.

    Ours starts with Choisy or Petite Colombe? Marche U or AMC? Pool? Beach? Picture taking day or music and read at home day? Decisions decisions and so it goes. The most popular chat topic...where to dine of course.

    We didn't eat here, but just did a drive by to check it out. Very beautiful with a Tamarinesque vibe.
