barbados

we took a much needed vacation to go on cruise in the caribbean with my family. it was so nice, it was difficult to come back to st louis! esp. since it's been so hot and humid here lately.


the cruise left from puerto rico. the first day was at sea - we spend the day eating, sitting by the pool, eating, more sitting by the pool (i think i took a nap in there somewhere) and then the first formal dinner. it was a very relaxing day, and a nice start to the vacation.

day 2 - barbados! we had signed up for a few shore excursions throughout our trip through the ship. our excursion in barbados was in the afternoon so we were able to spend a few hours in the morning walking around bridgetown, doing some shopping and sight seeing. that afternoon, we took a bus tour of the city that included a brewery tour and tour of a local rum distillery.

the tour guide was really good and we had a fun group.

the tour ended with a stop at the beach. after seeing many other beaches throughout the caribbean on this trip, the one on barbados had the finest, whitest sand. it was a beautiful beach.

next up, st. lucia! also know as the day we began to discover what "hurricane season" means in the caribbean.

Eating and sitting in the sunshine are what cruises are all about! I'm glad you had such a great time :)
