Local Eats (and Drinks)-St. Kitts

We spent the most amazing day on St. Kitts at a magnificent beach club.  With $3 local beers, we decided to bypass the fancy restaurant and hit up the beach bar instead.

You know it’s a small world when you start chatting with the people across from you and it turns out they live in the next town over back home.  They were big basketball fans and the BOY needed to discuss the recent Indiana game.  I was happy to get some restaurant recommendations for when we got home.  I was all set to order a Carib (as it was my third day in the Caribbean and I was yet to try one) when the bartender suggested two other local brews.

The Skol, he explained, was what the islanders REALLY drank and the Stag he described as ‘the man’s beer’.  With a sales pitch like that, I ordered the Skol and the BOY went for the Stag.

I loved the view from the bar, but took my second beer ‘to go’ leaving the BOY discussing basketball with our new friends and headed back into the sunshine.

The BOY returned hungry, and so we decided to take a stroll down the beach to see what was available.  We discovered a popular local beach bar and grill.

While the BOY waited for his burger, I walked around to explore.

The beach bar was inviting, and the colors were so dynamic!  I couldn’t stop taking pictures…

The BOY was thrilled with his burger, which was a steal compared to our beach resort restaurant.

And as always, I was in LOVE with the view!

The only thing missing from the day was a Carib, but I guess that’s a good enough reason to schedule our next visit to the Caribbean.  Don’t you think???
