All Day to Play – Part 2
11 February 2012 | Harmony Hall
Heidi / Beautiful again
All of the hiking and sea energy is making us hungry so we're off to find Harmony Hall, a place that our guidebook calls a "delightful garden setting among flowers and hummingbirds, with a view over the bay." It also mentions that it was written up in Gourmet Magazine, so we're off. Upon arrival we're greeted by the most amazing art. The first piece is a wall sculpture (made by an artist in Haiti from scrap metal) depicting a mermaid with fish earrings playing a saxophone. She has spirals all around her, and she's simply beautiful. We then discover a complete gallery of very interesting Caribbean art, a mix of great music and good energy. One of the artists is having a showing tomorrow and a musician will be playing so we may return.
Our table in the restaurant is one of four on a deck that overlooks the sea. We order two glasses of wine as the hostess tempts us with locally made goat cheeses, freshly caught Caribbean lobster and a carpaccio of Wahoo - a sport fish that is popular here - French bread and olive paste. We try them all and now fully understand the interest in Gourmet Magazine - outstanding food, service and ambiance.
