The Sticky Wicket
 
 
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.
 
 
 
         
 
 
 
The lounge is surrounded by memorabilia, the facilities are stunning and the bar where cocktails are freshly concocted.
 
 
 
         
 
 
 
Memorabilia of course means famous signed bats, pictures of great catches and must have photos of Sir Viv
 
 
 
 
 
 
Aerial View
 
 
 
 
 
 
The stunning Stanford Cricket Pitch.

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 much.

ALL IN ALL THERE WAS TO BE NO SNIVELING AT THE 'FAREWELL' - JUMP HAD PUT EYE LINER AND MASCARA ON - WE MADE IT - JUST.
