Meanwhile, we were positioned at an adjacent gate monitoring their every move. Their expressions of confusion and worry were priceless. We felt kind of guilty watching them go through this last minute agony, however we knew that the secret would be revealed shortly. Last call for boarding, and they finally headed over to board the plan, all the while looking around for Jane. Once they boarded the plane, we contacted Jane to advise her to make the final call to them that they had just been "punked." As we walked up the aisle to our seats right across from theirs, they spotted us and broke out in laughter. The expressions on their faces were hilarious. We all enjoyed a big laugh as the plane took off.
1. The drivers are a bit aggressive
2. They drive on the opposite side of the road with the steering wheel on the right side
3. There are no traffic signals
Other than that the drive was pleasant and memorable.
What a surprise we had upon arrival at the Little Good Harbor. We were met by our host, Graham Dear, who greeted us and quickly ushered us to our second floor, ocean-front villa. Oh, my God! What a place. Not your typical hotel room, this villa sits right on the edge of the Caribbean Sea. Graham gave us a quick tour of the cozy 2-bedroom suite, complete with a full kitchen, living area, and balcony overlooking the ocean. While we enjoyed our welcome drinks, Graham shared some local lore with us. We laughed and thanked him for his hospitality, and then toasted our arrival before going out to discover the rest of the facility of Little Good Harbor.
First stop was The Fish Pot Restaurant, where we met Juliette, a pleasant hostess, who allowed us to snoop around before the dinner crowed arrived, and told us about the very best table in the place -- table #7, near the window in the corner. But, if we wanted to dine outdoors on the patio, the corner table would be best.
Graham had graciously made dinner reservations for us at The Fish Pot restaurant, which happens to be just steps away from our villa. By candlelight, we enjoyed delicious meals and talked about the beginning of this wonderful experience. Our waitress, Andrea, was a pleasure, and gave us lots of suggestions about where to find the best local fish and shopping. With that, we were ready to really get to know Barbados.
