On Christmas Eve we took the tender into Soufriere town to go to a restaurant for dinner. Taking the tender was a mistake, we should have taken a water taxi and arranged for them to guard Anastasia while we were away. The thieves forced open a hatch and stole cash, mobile phones, watches, a camera, some new trainers, chocolate (except with almonds) and hairspray. About £2000 worth in all.
Everyone was a bit depressed on Christmas Day and we considered cancelling our lunch reservation at the exclusive Dasheen restaurant up between the Pitons, but fortunately we decided to go out anyway.
Now we are anchored in Marigot Bay, where the original Dr Dolittle movie was filmed. Tonight we dine here at the Rainforest Hideaway, supposedly one of the top 10 restaurants in the Caribbean. It will have to be good to match up to the Dasheen.
