A Fancy for Barbados

Hey, did you miss me?

I am just back from a week in Barbados. I know, rought life eh, lol. We had to fly down and find a new abode. Only five days to find something we BOTH could be happy in. Yikes, that is not much time.

Although we spent almost every day looking at properities, we were able to get in a tiny bit of sightseeing as well. Mostly around our hotel.

The view from our room

 We are both early risers, and were able to go for a walk before being picked up by the relocation firm.

Our hotel was beautiful, we were in the pool before breakfast and after

dinner every day.

One of the pools.

This was the pool that we spent the most time in, love the infinity edge.

We also went to the beach, mostly in the morning. Ian made me go the ‘road less travelled’.

But, the end result was worth it.

On our walks, we saw amazing architecture,

lots of great plants,

like my favourite, skyflower,

and this very cool palm,

and lots and lots of blue, three different shades to be exact.

A fort,

and some amazing sunsets!

    Good luck with the home buying! I hope there will be pictures of what you finally settle on. And I hope houses in Barbados come with some land to garden.

    Paradise for sure. Have to say I evny you considering we saw our first snowfall this past week…. nothing to speak of as far as accumulation is concerned, but still, it was there, in the air, falling from the sky just to let us know it can and it will. It will be interesting to see what property you end up with. Fingers are crossed for you! Hey, wanna build a snowman? TeHe!

    Based upon the stunning images that you have posted here, me thinks that you already have the kernels of a new blog post. Surely there are going to be gardens in Barbados to cultivate or admire.

    For those views I’m as strong as the bags are heavy. I think I’m a little jealous.

    Hi Deborah – As you know I haven’t been blogging in quite a while and haven’t even been checking my favorite bloggers – you being at the top of that list. Anyways, I easing into 8 weeks off work as I am having back surgery on Tuesday so thought I would check up on some old blogging friends. What a shock to see that you will be transferred. But what an exciting adventure. And there are a lot worse, dull, grey places in the world than the Barbados. I know that no matter where you live, you will make it beautiful. Hope you will be able to keep your fans happy by posting about this new venture. Good luck.
