|Desserts to die for|
Sandals has three resorts in St. Lucia, and their policy is "Stay at One, Play at All Three," so we did. Our location, Sandals Halcyon Beach, was in the center of the three, and a convenient shuttle van transported guests from our Sandals on a scenic 15 minute drive to either of the others.
Since our resort was the smallest of the three, and only had five restaurants on site, we travelled several times throughout our week to dine at some of the other 17 restaurants for meals and once for a massage.
What were we served? Fish puffs, of course, and they were absolutely delicious. I could eat those three times a day, easily.
I had read in my Sandals brochures about a small restaurant, Josephine's, that was built to resemble a Parisian creperie, and so we left by shuttle one day on our way to the Sandals Grande to find this little slice of heaven.
Just steps off of the beach, this cozy and quaint little eatery endorsed eating dessert for lunch. I like that. And to sweeten the deal, the little pizzeria right around the corner sent pizzas in also, if requested. So, Bob had the sugary crepes, I had the pizza, and everybody was happy. We are glad we experienced the deliciousness found in this little restaurant.
Our final night we went to Gordon's on the Pier, again at the Sandals Grande for a fancy six course, white glove service meal. When we saw the venue from a distance, it didn't look overly exciting, but once we arrived, boy did they take good care of us. I even ordered crab cakes as my appetizer, a dish I would normally avoid. I virtually inhaled my cake, it was that delicious. Mom, oh ye lover of good crab cakes, you'd be so proud of me.

And Mom, all those lessons you taught me throughout life about which piece of silverware to use for which course came in quite handy that night. I was able to dine without looking like a hillbilly. Thanks Mom, and thank you Sandals for a week filled with fantastic dining adventures.
Tomorrow, "Postcards From St. Lucia: Towel Art." Beautiful, silly, and creative. Fun stuff.
