So this blog covers about 1 and a half weeks, but they have been very eventful! First of all, last time I wrote, I'm pretty sure I was at this same location, Bridgetown Barbados, and I posted a nice picture of me at the beach. Well, that day I got the worst sunburn of my life, and ...
Woke up this morning really early; in fact we'd been awake since about 4.00am due to the 4-hour time difference. So at 5.45am I was up and onto the balcony, looking from our vantage point on Deck 11 over the awakening port of Bridgetown.

I breathed in the ocean for a while, and reality set in that I truly was in paradise... with Mr. Right! Tony is pretty happy too that he is no longer with "Ms. Right now," but instead Ms. Right!
