barbados is amazing.

something about the sunshine made us giddy
and we had more fun than we could've imagined.

we went snorkeling with gigantic sea turtles
and had a dance-off on a catamaran.

we stayed in st lawrence gap - known for its restaurants and nightlife, 
but ventured to oistins and up the platinum coast.

we drank coffee on our balcony over looking the ocean each morning
and sat in our private hot tub when it poured one afternoon.
we danced with the locals and held a monkey at a fish fry.

we couldn't quite woo our way into the pool 
at the ultra luxurious sandy lane.
so we stopped at the country club for lunch and ogling.

we ate barracuda and mahi mahi and my favorite... 
bread pudding with rum sauce. and just for fun,
we took a shot of tequila every morning.

the bajans drove on the left side of the road and 
we had to be extra careful to look BOTH ways before we crossed the street.
we didn't play cricket, but we dominated the sand volleyball court.

we laughed and danced and had an amazing time.

Ah! My new husband and I just went to Barbados for our honeymoon!

And snorkeled with those SAME SEA TURTLES on that SAME catamaran. What a fun day trip.

We also met a monkey on our trip to the local fish fry/dance party.

Such a beautiful island!
