It's a rain day today. Or should I say liquid sunshine as it is known here.
When the sun breaks through Ruth and Malcolm head out for a walk. Before long we notice that it is raining heavily and they must have been caught in it. Later on they tell us that they had to shelter under a tree to escape the downpour.
At the hut mum, Henry and I read and relax.
When Ruth and Malcolm get back they confess that ...
... to get a letter of invitation from my soon-to-be
hosts proved futile.
She settled for a forwarded email with fuzzy details of my accommodation and made it clear that the St. Lucia airport would ask for travel documents and even warned of no entry in Martinique by their immigration. I never thought of the French as being draconian but I smiled and nodded.
We arrived, worn out, in Barbados after our long journey from Tortola on New Year's Day, happy that we had booked a nice luxury hotel to spend some time relaxing and recuperating in (although to be honest there were only luxury hotels to be found in Barbados).

... other, and the previous hotels were tough to beat! But as you move farther down the bay, the water gets more aqua because there is less rock/coral on the shallow floor of the sea. So, in front of our balcony, is a HUGE, PERFECTLY perched palm tree with a picturesque background of the crystal clear James Bay. We LOVE our room- quaint and smaller than the others, yet high quality.
We had lunch in hotel's casual ...
... fish, and brightly colored tropical creatures you see on TV and in pictures!
Next, we swam back to the boat (quite a workout, actually!). Lunch was ready; we had worked up an appetite, so it tasted extra delicious! Tony was ready to slather on the sunscreen and stay in the shade. Others swam back to shore to walk on the beach. Not me! I headed for the deck and sprawled out on some netting above the water. I wanted to lie ...
