Reflections on Barbados

Didn't really do a 'daily' post of our time here as we go so often it's like home for us.  This time Barbados was very warm (yes, warmer than usually by a couple of degrees centigrade).  There is also a drought - no substantial rain since Christmas.  Water shortages are not yet happening, however, conservation is being advised.  Also many occurrences of careless individuals starting brushfires.  We took this photo while flying out to Union Island.

Hopefully there will be some rain soon for the islanders.  My mother told me they have increased the residential cost of water by 50% already.  Fingers crossed.

We didn't do anything to out of the ordinary this trip.  We went to a new restaurant with Dale's cousins.  The Tides, Holetown St. James.  Highly recommend (thanks Jan!) and we would go back for sure.  The service was great and the food was outstanding...the lobster risotto was absolutely amazing.  (Luckily my next Daring Kitchen challenge is risotto...).  This was the Pan Seared Tuna entree...truly delectable.

 

We also did our 'annual' daysail with Ocean Adventure on the Silver Moon II.  Ben, our captain, once again provided a great day at sea.  Lunch was wonderful, and great to swim with the turtles again.  I bought an underwater camera bag from an online dive shop - it works great with our little camera!

 

We were able once again to secure some fresh fish which we promptly brought home, vacuum sealed then frozen.  The fish arrive with us, safe and sound and frozen after a 12 hour journey.
 We do hope to be back soon to beautiful Barbados.  We will be attending my brother's wedding next January, but you never know...we may be back sooner rather than later.
