A Glimpse into our Caribbean Holiday.

We have spent the last few days on the beautiful island of St. Maarten with my family. Celebrating Christmas on white sandy beaches, with crystal clear water is pretty surreal. We have spent the majority of our time on the beach, I mean can you blame us? Yesterday we made way to the Dutch side capital of Philipsburg for some light shopping and lunch. There were cruise ships docked, leaving the beach and small eateries full. We stopped off at Fishermans Pub and Grill, for a little taste of some local eats. My favorite of the afternoon was the "Jamaarten". Chicken wings smothered in their own jerk sauce recipe, and then grilled to perfection. It came with a small side of their own housemade barbecue sauce as well. The little plate of wings had a nice heat, that still leaves my mouth wandering just thinking about them. Tender Oxtail was our main dish, leaving Antonio and I fighting with our forks for every last bit. Conch is aplenty around here. Crunchy conch filled fritters served with a spicy tomato sauce, that went seemingly with the diced chiles inside. We couldn't help ourselves, and just had to make a stop at the Guavaberry Emporium. We left with an incredibly refreshing Guavaberry Colada, sipping as we shopped through the streets.
