We began the day very relaxed. We read – for me, I stayed in the pool and read. Then, the four of us went to the main pool and read for a while. It was very relaxing. An odd place to read Year Zero, the world in 1945 and Berlin in 1945, but I enjoyed it anyway.
After lunch, we drove to the East End of the island. We all agreed that we enjoyed the East End a lot – very rustic, very uncrowded. The road was very good for a while, then became dirt. Lots of ruts and potholes, but nothing impassible, despite our small cars. The road crosses back and forth across the spine of the island, with views of both the windward and leeward sides. Much of the development on the east end is rustic and organic, but it also includes a few mansions, or gated communities – a strange development of very modern homes on the top of a ridge, and long roads behind massive gates heading across the island to the beach. Still, we felt that this rusticity and remoteness was more "us".
We stopped for great drinks, view, and food at La Sirena at
Camp Bay – definitely recommended. The bar sits on the end of a pier, over the water. The others had rum drinks or beer, while I had a Fresca (since I was driving). We also ate lion fish ceviche – tasty – and hot wings – very good! Three bar dogs came to say hello – all were sweet, clean, and friendly. One adopted Ann, even before she had food. After enjoying the dogs and the drinks, we went on to the end of the road. The road ends at the old Port Royale, which was supposedly a den of pirates. We didn't have long to linger, as it was getting late, so we only walked around a little bit before we decided it was time to drive home. We arrived home just as it was getting dark.
A game of Cards Against Humanity, then bed.
