Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Our tradition before we went cruising was to celebrate with a breakfast of corned beef hash and eggs at one of our favorite Irish Pubs before heading off to Milwaukee's St. Patrick's Day parade.  (Ahhhh, men in kilts!)  We were always home well before the crazy's went out for the evening.  Celebrating St. Patrick's Day with fun and frivolity seems to be more of a North American concept.  In Ireland it is a religious holiday.  Here in the Caribbean it is rarely observed.  This photo is one that Jim took in 2010 when we celebrated at Molly Malone's in St. Thomas.  Our favorite Grenadian hang-out, de Big Fish is holding a party tonight so we'll get to drink Guiness and green Carib, eat Irish influenced food and listen to some good music.  Whatever your plans are, have a great day.

  1. Greetings from Milwaukee,

    It is nice to see that you are trying to export some fine traditions to otherwise nice places. Your posts usually contain great photography and the subject behind the Guiness is a case in point. Good Work Jim!!!!
