We had been told about The Sticky
Wicket by some yachties in Guadeloupe. It is a couple of minutes walk from V. C.
Bird Airport and seemed the place to begin our week with Jump Jet. We met her
flight and trotted her bag to the car and settled in the air-conditioned lounge
bar for a welcome cocktail.
The beautiful flower
displays, the walk to the door and of course the cricket theme.
is surrounded by memorabilia, the facilities are
stunning and the bar where cocktails are freshly
Memorabilia of course means famous signed bats, pictures of great catches and must have
photos of Sir Viv
Stanford Cricket Pitch.
www.thestickywicket.com The best
place to relax before or after a flight and the shop with the famous Black Bats
When the time came for Jump Jet to
leave we dropped her to check her bag in and returned to The Sticky Wicket for
lunch. Bear had Surf 'n Turf, I had home made Caribbean burger (spicy) and Jump
had a very attractive chicken sandwich, three tiered and cocktail-sticked, salad
and fries. Setting her up in case Virgin refreshment wasn't up to
Bear and Jump walking slowly to get
the last chat in.
ALL IN ALL THERE WAS TO
BE NO SNIVELING AT THE 'FAREWELL' - JUMP HAD PUT EYE LINER AND MASCARA ON -
WE MADE IT - JUST.
