We managed to have a proper Saturday this weekend, a nearly work free Saturday, which is rare in our household. We took the dog to Leeward beach and enjoyed a bright, glassy turquoise ocean for a snorkel and swim. I took a few travel books to help us plan our next trip over lunch. We decided to stop at a little place we pass often that had a new sign hanging over the front entrance. Indian Kitchen has only been open two weeks and I highly suggest everyone give it a try before it gets crowded. Two Corona’s and two delicious vegetarian roti’s set us back only $28. The open air cafe sits just beside Alverna’s Market, perfect for tourists to take a browse at the local craft, seashell, and Haitian art selections. For those of us that live here, it’s one of those places that remind us we live in the Caribbean; simple white painted wood structure with splashes of color here and there, lattice and shutters to catch the breeze, and a small grassy courtyard area nestled between the market shops. We asked the friendly owner if we could move our table and chairs under the shade of a coconut tree and she eagerly obliged us. A nearby native lantana and a red hibiscus were visited by a hummingbird while we polished every last morsel off our plates.
