Rich and Famous, Batali, Part Deux

Mario Batali's still on island – having a good time staying at Caneel Bay and Tweeting.


"Yeow back at the crabby fatso. Presently surfing wave of yumminess !!! Woohoo!!"

Waking this morning, he offrered, "Good morning sweet sea!! (@ Turtle Beach)."

When the Inquiring Iguana Tweeted, "Someone shud tell Mario it's Turtle 'Bay' not 'Beach'," he replied

"Thx frank but the beach on turtle bay is too dry to be called a bay so we call it turtle beach Woohoo!"

At last Tweet, Mario was "On the beach in st john admiring the war from the dmz of a pina colada surf." He sent  a picture, too.

Have fun, Mr. Batali.

The tables were built by a St. Johnian Aubrey Walters.  Among other previous projects, he  also installed a gazebo project at Hillcrest Guest House in Cruz Bay.
