Here in Barbados. FINALLY. A vacation. Yesterday was a long day. Flew in, got settled, and in the evening went down to the Oistins Fish Fry. If you are in Barbados, on a Friday or Saturday night - its a great place to be. Stalls of cooks, just frying up the catch of the day. Fish dinners come with a variety of side orders - french fries, macaroni salad, etc. That day, there was Marlin (yum), Tuna, Flying fish, and "Mahi-Mahi" - the bajans call it "dolphin".
Let's just say that it was an opportunity to make new friends. There was Noel - a fellow who was born and raised in Oistins with his family - quite drunk - and very friendly. He would not stop talking. There was jesse - with whom we listened to and joked about the bad kareoke (sp?). And Neil....we'll call him "smooth and shiny" and leave it at that. We made it home with no regrets ;-)
Today, it was all about the wonderful seabath in the morning and good food and family in the afternoon. All the folks got together kids and all for a wonderful lunch. Flying fish, chicken, salads, bread pudding and ice cream, and veggies.
Its good to be here. Sorry I cannot stay longer. Divi Southwinds is certainly not Seasymphony - but it will do for a week. ;-)
