Waiting on the water taxi
Friday was our 27th wedding anniversary, so we decided we'd splurge on a dinner at Red Ginger at the Phoenix.  We had stayed at the Phoenix on our very first trip to San Pedro in celebration of our 25th anniversary and had our anniversary dinner at Red Ginger then, so it seemed fitting to go back again two years later.  Given all the rain lately and puddly roads, we even splurged on the water taxi instead of taking our bikes.  This meant that I could actually wear a dress and not arrive at the restaurant sweating and messy! 

The restaurant was just as attractive and classy as we remembered, and the food every bit as good -- and a visual treat as well.  I enjoyed a couple of glasses of Sauvignon Blanc, a rare treat as pricey as wine is here in San Pedro.   Since it was our anniversary, they even gave us one of our desserts on the house.  Thanks Red Ginger!  

Our waiter told us he'd done some wedding photography in the past, so we were happy to have him to take our photo together.

I got the special - Grouper with Asian Peanut sauce. Seriously good!

Barry had cheese enchiladas, which came with a lovely large side salad

This is the same table we sat at two years ago
We shared a molten chocolate cake and caramel apple cheesecake for dessert.  Very decadent!

A delightful dinner and evening!

Happy anniversary, Emily! Red Ginger is the perfect place for a special meal - it's hard to believe that after 14 visits we only discovered it in May. I met you, Barry, and Paisley on your walk past Belizean Cove earlier this month. I really enjoy your blog to keep me in the island frame of mind between trips! Thanks!

Hi Debbie! I remember meeting you very well. Don't feel bad -- I don't think Red Ginger has been opened nearly as long as you've been coming down. Seems like it hadn't been open long when we first came to San Pedro in May 2010. I am glad you discovered it as it is a real treasure.

Just taking a moment after reading your blog to wish you and Barry a very Happy Anniversay (although a couple of days late). Your pics are always fun to see. Your dinner looked devine.
