Well I’m back from Antigua (aka paradise)! I had a wonderful time with my family exploring the island and all it had to offer. It’s filled with vast and lush tropical forests and mountains, not to mention it’s incredible beaches (365 total, one for every day of the year!).
We were lucky enough to dine at some of nicest restaurants on the island and some of the best local spots. Because it is an island they do have to import a large portion of their goods, but all of the restaurants seemed to really make an effort to source produce and protein locally, such as parrot fish and black pineapple.
Jacqui O’s Beach House: Order the Pina Colada, it’s sinfully delicious. Oh and the gourmet food is superb! Did I also mention the beach overlooks some of the most beautiful crystal clear water you have ever seen, and you can view it all from your own personal cabana?
Catherine’s Cafe Plage: Beautiful French restaurant off the beaten path that mixes local ingredients into its cuisine. Oh and if it’s yours or your dining companions birthday you are not going to want to miss out on their epic birthday song!
The D – Boat: Converted from a 1974 Oil Tanker into a state of the art offshore experience. Beautiful views, constant entertainment, water park with water activities, great food, and amazing drinks! This place will bring out your inner child with it’s water trampoline and 35 foot water slide…oh and a little birdy told me they will soon have a 65 foot slide, thrill-seekers unite!
It was incredible to get a break from the extremely cold weather. I drank lots of daiquiris and rum punches and gained a serious ginger tan (aka lots of more freckles). I was very sad to leave the perfect 80 degree and sunny weather, but I’m happy to be back with all of you!
We’ve got a lot of fun things in the works here at the TTAB for this Spring including some events and some pretty cool collaborations. We also have some pretty big blog posts coming up,one may or may not be based on a dover music festival coming up this June, so keep your eyes peeled!
