We had a leisurely breakfast at the villa. We got changed and then Grant and I picked up our friend Julien at 11:30am. We drove over to our villa and introduced him to Dad and had a drink outside. We had bought a salad from the boulangerie for Dad's lunch which Dad had at the villa.
We headed over with Julien to la Gloriette and had lunch overlooking the beach. On the way back we stopped at the Marche U supermarket and helped Julien with his shopping list. We took him back to his apartment and helped him put his shopping away. He showed us the view from the communal pool overlooking St. Jean.
We got home about 5pm and then got ready for dinner at Pipiri Palace in Gustavia.
This creole restaurant turned out to be one of our best meals of the holiday. To start, we all shared a portion of crab cakes and cod accras. The crab cakes were absolutely delicious. Dad and I both had creole shrimp for our main course which was served with a delicious vegetable rice.
Grant had a mahi mahi curry which he really enjoyed.
We finished the meal with a complimentary vanilla rum.
Back at the villa we watched a film called 'The Brave One' with Jodie Foster until I fell asleep on the sofa!
