    Hilarious! I found this out last year. I asked for a Terios and Odile looked at me with a smile. No more...

    Oh wow...what a great thread!
    So many places to enjoy now but those long gone shall always be dear to the heart.

    Chez Francine! So much fun.
    The first time we stayed at KerJean in BOM1 and we were there a LOT!
    (Who remembers Philippe sauntering along St Jean?)

    The original Mini Mokes! The only way to travel, careening dangerously over the terrain after the exotic rums at New Born

    Le Sapotillier...hands down the positively absolute best Creme Brûlée

    Thursdays at La Marine, but of course

    And...the more recent...
    O’Corail
    La Gloriette
    Do Brazil

    Loved them all...great memories!
    Cheers to them...
    Cheers to those that we enjoy today

    Meat and Potatoes. They said the name was silly and the fare would not work. They were all wrong. The meats were fantastic and the thin apple tarte the size of a shoe box topped with ice cream made for one great dinner.

    Re: Things We Miss

    We miss a lot of the same places you all have mentioned.
    What I especially miss is Gloriette. Although that really applies to the new century.
    We miss the great dollar - franc exchange rate and things not as pricey.
    The lack of Americans and visitors in general in the off season.
    Spending the days just reading away because we really didn't know other vacationers. That being said, we have loved meeting so many nice people from this forum and catching up in person.
    However, things we don't miss are;
    Packing a large cooler full of supplies. You can pretty much get everything now(except roasted red pepper hummus).
    Having to warm up the Samari so it won't stall going up the road (at pt milou rock) from the villa.
    Getting Franc's before we depart the U.S.
    There's no dumb a$$ vaccine

    The Lafayette Club on Grand Cul de Sac...we started coming to the island in 1989 and don't know how long it was there...but it was the essence of Chic...

    Also Marigot Beach Club restaurant...their own fresh caught lobsters...my wife and my first dinner ever in 1990....was staying at the Guanahani...got in late afternoon and didn't feel like dressing up (a relative term) for the hotel restaurant...so was directed here...I knew the island was magical and that we were "home"...

    Just came back from the island in March...just the two of us after many years with the kids...celebrated 30th...still magical, but miss the old places..but still no place like SB because it feels like home...

    I agree with you Hydraa. A place you can call and feel HOME.

    Not that I miss it, since I never did it. Who remembers the horseback riding in Flamand. Anyone ever ride down there?

    Re: Things We Miss

    WOW! What great memories this thread brings back.

    For me they begin in March 1987 with a one week stay on Flamands beach at the hotel that was destroyed by a hurricane a few years later. Name escapes me. Coming from Boston/Nantucket then, and riding in an open sided Moke... who cared if one got wet in the showers? It was a warm rain when it was snowing back home.
    After buying at Colony Club in 1999 and then selling 20 years later, in part because so much had changed, SBH is still the best! Plus ca change.... mais it's still the greatest.
    My favorite memories...
    -Staying at Petite Morne the first 10 years for 2 weeks 2-3 times a year. Doors wide open and the night wind blowing thru the studio.
    -Renting a Moke from Odile... she's still a beauty, but a real babe back then.
    -Gouveneur beach at 1PM when the shop girls would come for lunch, unwrap their pareo, eat and sunbathe nude until time to return to work.
    -Pelican resto, now site of Nikki. Then it was a true island beach bar with a simple fish menu.
    -Moules et frites on Thursday nights from the two sisters that ran La Marine. I would call from the States to reserve a table... a big deal call back then.
    -Pierre at Pipiri Palace. First night was always for Ribs and Blues! A fun guy that rolled his own cigs with a little "extra". Always a gleam in his eye, Pierre's rum vanille was the strongest :-) To me, Pierre's passing was the first sign of change on the island. I'm always happy to find Regine is OK.
    -Baz Bar at New Years and Bucket when Jean Marc would say "screw the decibel meter" and let the place rock. Jimmy arriving to borrow Evan Goodrow's guitar.

    But fortunately some things are still the same.
    -Eddys. Great food and always a friendly hello from Eddy, Bridget et al.
    -Walking down the hill into town for dinner and the hike home. I still rent at Colony Club when on island.
    -Gouveneur beach. Despite the americans and their piles of beach paraphernalia, if you walk to the end you can find solitude
    I'm sure I'm leaving much out, having spent 2-3 years in total on island over the 32 years since 1987, but these are what come first to mind. The best years!
    I'm always happy when I check in here and see the vibrant community that helps keep the spirit alive.
