Special day for Michelle and she is off for "Hanakasumi", a 90 minute foot and body massage. I get mine tomorrow. Rick and I are off to the walk in clinic as he has his usual tropical rash and needs steroids. Day mostly gone after we have lunch, so we head back to the house and chill out. Which means we both have a nap. Michelle and Terry come back from the beach and Terry cooks us a lovely birthday dinner. Complete with flowers and cake. Another day in ...
... mind the back up plan comes into action.
We finish the shopping, including another birthday cake, and head back to the hut.
After several hours of food preparation and some pretty nifty decorating by Ruth it's time to get the party started.
Another surprise - Keisha and Andy arrive. Malcolm is pretty bowled over by it all.
Mind you he ends up doing the BBQ even though he's the birthday boy.
... br> Our trip to the Turtles was all it was cracked up to be and I think you will see from the photos we had a wonderful afternoon, with rum punches on the way back.
Our trip is going well and we are getting used to it all now. The weather is wonderful and we have a day at sea followed by a day at Curacao on Saturday.
All our love

Grandma and Grandad

I always love going to Barbados, For many reasons......
My Grandma Minkie has a house and we all meet there every year....
Food- sugar cane, It is everywhere and we always go get some and eat it
breakfast pancakes, Every morning I get them
pina colada. On the beach at lunch time
Beach- warm water sand fun! ridding the waves.
Family- cousins, uncle, ants
... we didn't feel "catered to," but I think the type of people who stay here are the "stuffy" type who don't want to be bothered. We clearly are not like that, right?!
Next item on the agenda: ZIP LINE!!! That was an experience of a lifetime! Our guides were really the ones who made it extra great. We bantered back and forth about their "accent," which is really a dialect they said I would pick up if I were here ...
