St. Martin and the fact that the internet wasn’t working very well and I had nothing scheduled might not be bad at all.
The weather seemed to be about the same each day of my trip – partly sunny in the 70s with a little bit of rain at some point. I went to the buffet at the Sonesta St.Maarten Ocean Terrace Restaurant for an egg white omelet filled with veggies, saving my calories for the scrumptious croissants. I then headed out to explore the large property before heading downtown.
I couldn’t believe how late it was when I left the spa. (Where does the day go when you are basically doing nothing?) I quickly changed for dinner and walked down to The Point, Sonesta Maho's fine dining restaurant.
For a main course, I enjoyed the Gnocchi with a tomato eggplant sauce that was creamy without being too rich. I had a tasty Banana Flambe (actually mousse-like) for dessert with a latte and decided to head downtown to see what was going on at the clubs.
It was still a bit early for the clubs to get going so I started at the Casino across the street. I managed to keep $10 going on a slot machine for an hour before heading next door to Cheri’s Café. It was a karaoke night and the crowd was growing, but I was getting a bit bleary eyed and decided it was time to turn in. I had a really big day coming up as I was asked to come down to Island 92 Radio and speak on the air. It was something I was excited about and I was equally anxious to check out the area down at St. Martin’s Simpson Bay.
