Started our first full day on the island casually and then taking a riding tour of most of the island. Ended up renting a car and driving ourselves back to our place. Tis the rainy season here right now and on an island that has very little elevation — there is lots of standing water. Factor that in with a car that has the steering wheel on the ‘passenger’ side, driving on the ‘wrong’ side of the road, through a small monsoon and not sure where you’re going — all adds up for quite an adventure~!
Finally made it back to the apartment (you can only get ‘so lost’ on an island)… had a drink to calm the nerves – then headed out to find a place for a bite to eat.
Found a fun little place called Over the Edge not very far from us (thankfully). Settled in for a drink and dinner. Open air, watching the rain move toward us from the distance. If you’re not a fan of humid salt air – you probably won’t like the place, but the breeze picked up a little bit and we enjoyed the atmosphere. Young man with a strong Jamaican influence waited on us. My Queen had Snapper and I had a Wahoo steak. Both agree each meal was very good. Meal was served with a massive salad that neither of us could finish. We shared a delicious piece of cheesecake for dessert. They serve breakfast there, so were are looking forward to our first breakfast of scrambled eggs and Lobster soon,(particularly so we can send pictures to the ‘damn neighbors’) – but that is also a breakfast we have been dreaming of since we started talking about our little adventure.
Back to our apartment for a shower and some much needed rest….more tomorrow!
