|Local brew at Jolly Harbor Beach|
|Mudslides? I think. Falmouth Harbor? I think.|
So, with lessons still not learned, for this post we will simply get this over with and document some of the food and drink consumed in the days immediately following our landfall in Antigua.
We'll start with Flatties Flame Grill. Since the beginning of the passage, Jim has been enticing us with tales of all-you-can-eat-ribs at Flatties.
We were a day late for the the Tuesday night special, but we made up for it with two dinners at Flatties in the next 3 days.
Make no mistake. The food at Flatties is great. The ribs are great...
... but the Espedata is even better.
As much as we enjoyed Flatties, the culmination of our arrival was the official crew celebration dinner. The winner of the Morpheus Arrival Pool gets to choose the venue. Despite some question about the integrity of the pool winner qualification process, Kim was declared the winner of the pool.
Her selection of the relatively new Italian eatery Incanto in English Harbour was inspired, the meal was fantastic and, as consequence, all subsequent pool recount challenges were dropped.
|I beleive we are toasting Gibb, our weather guardian angle and crew member in spirit, |
despite his missing the arrival time be over 3 1/2 hours.
|Good call Kim. The meal was awesome. I have loosened by belt.|
|I'm pretty sure this was Jolly Harbour Resort, and I think this is a gin fizz.|
|Brews on the Jolly Harbor Beach were the order of the day (see top pic)|
At some point we were coerced into a round of pile drivers (I think) that we did not need at "The Admiral's Inn" under the watchful eye of Admiral Horatio Nelson in English Harbor.
Then we were coerced into another round that we needed even less.
Brews at the bar...
This is Jacqui O's on the beach near Jolly Harbor...
... and, as I recall, this is our server - "Priscilla".
It's a great spot for sunsets on the beach and whatever the hell is in this "signature drink" is that I am consuming in these pics.
It wasn't all formal food and drink. There are a lot of casual eateries along the walk between Falmouth and English Harbor. We were not disappointed in any we sampled. We'll conclude with one standout - Roti Sue ...
I had the beef, Jim and Deb had the chicken. A local delicacy, at a local roadside institution, served with local beer and local hot sauce...
|And it's really really good.|
