Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Banana Daquirrrrrri

July 12, 2008 at 8:50 am 1 comment

A pirate walks into a bar with a ship’s wheel in his pants.

The bartender asks “What’s that ship’s wheel doing in your pants?”

The pirate replies “Arrrgh, it be driving me nuts!”

During our family trip to the US Virgin Islands we had already summited two peaks on St. John. We were staying on St. Thomas (here) but hadn’t found a peak to summit yet. Before going on a planned visit to Coral World we decided to ascend, by car, the high point of the island, Mountain Top. A windy road leads right to the summit – which is occupied by a couple thousand signs proclaiming Mountain Top as the birthplace of the banana daiquiri. Very subtle.

World Famous?

Before venturing into the bar for a WORLD-FAMOUS banana daiquiri, we enjoyed Summit Cheeseburgers in the parking lot marking the summit of Mountain Top.

The Money Shot

As we made our way to the WORLD-FAMOUS banana daiquiris we were shepherded past countless tourist trinket shops. T-shirts, shot glasses, shells glued to pieces of wood, and plastic bananas were all available. We enjoyed WORLD-FAMOUS banana daiquiris that appeared to be piped from a large vat to a bar with a tremendous view of the US and British Virgin Islands. Nice. We had company in the form of a number of pirates and piratesses.

Good views, good burgers, good fun.
