The last Royal visit was 28 years ago for the official opening of the Brimstone Hill Fortress. Not a bad day to be on a cruise ship visiting the island. We're just happy to have some of the potholes filled.
Ok, so we missed the Royals, but we did get to meet another avid blog reader, Mary K. from Michigan. I'm not sure how she escaped without ending up in a photo, but we had fun trading stories over a beer or two at Shipwreck. She flies home today, leaving her daughter (a vet student) behind to continue studying, so will soon be living vicariously through us again. Lucky for her, there's a St. Paddy's day hash coming up (everyone wear green!), so everyone's guaranteed some hash hilarity.
Alliance-Francaise is having a wine tasting on Wednesday. I'd like to go to one of these sometime, but have gained a little weight lately and will be working this week to fix that. Kittitians are rather blunt, something only a New Yorker like myself can appreciate, and one called me out on my new, um, curves last week. It didn't bother me. I took my too-tight shorts much more personally.
Hopefully, we'll get some produce planted this week or Saturday and will be eating lots of healthy stuff soon.
