All we need is heartbeat Stop the hate!!

Good news: Just saw where the Greenhouse in SXM is open for business. SXM is really amazing as the island is so resilient! Bouncing right back. Won' be the same familiar landscape but she's gearing up for high season with a lot of help from "friends."

Amen Sandra! Puerto Rico now has a phrase Agua y Luca.

Literal translation Water and Power

I just saw the news that PR may have power to 25% of its people by November.

Imagine if you were in Dominica I can't

So good to hear about the Greenhouse. A favorite place to sip, eat, people watch. Just a few steps from Passanggrahan.

Alas, it WILL take a long time for Puerto Rico, Dominica, Tortola, SXM, etc., to recover. I'm so proud of those who have helped and continue to help, including Island Windjammers and the Shantyites.

Bev, SXM is the airport code for St Martin. Greenhouse restaurant is in St Martin. I have never been to ST Martin and if others can tell you more I know they will add on to my comments. 64 and counting Paul

Yep! Paul is correct. SXM=St. Maarten/St. Martin
The Greenhouse is a great gathering spot for jammers to meet prior/post sailing on an Island Girl. It is in Phillipsburg down by the docks. Great 2 for 1 drinks during Happy Hour. Good food also.

The Greenhouse is a great restaurant on the harbor at Phillipsburg. It is right at the corner as you start to go up the road to the cruise docks and just a few steps from the Pasanggraham hotel. A popular,meeting, eating and drinking location.
