Elegant and Sophisticated

Not normally adjectives that get applied to us right now (or ever to me) but last night we got close, arranging for the kids to be looked after on another boat and slipping across the water to the Fowl Cay Resort, a private island that has lovely houses for up to thirty guests together with a beautiful dining room and bar. Last night they had just four residents, four other dinner guests and us, so we were treated to wonderful relaxed service in gorgeous surroundings.

The food was superb, a five course meal rounded off by an exquisite dessert on a shared plate just for the two of us - they had twigged that it was our anniversary and there was a lovely card for us at the table. Typically I'd spent half the day wondering what cocktail to have - we get lots of rum punch, pina colada and other rum and fruit things so I wanted something a little more sophisticated. The barman suggested a dry vodka martini and since we are half a mile from where part of the Bond film 'Thunderball' was filmed, it was of course shaken, not stirred. And perfect. I had another. You see what a tough life we have, obviously.

It was an anniversary dinner we will remember for ever, and one of the best meals we have ever eaten. Next time you're in the area, we suggest you should dine there one evening.
