Aboard the Queen Mary 2 -- Our holiday, or vacation from retirement life, Part Two
Day six of an eleven day Caribbean cruise, January 3, 2009: Today we went to Barbados. Mrs. Jim had been there previously in 2001 for Mitch and Carmen's wedding. Then we took a taxi in the morning and rode around the island for about six hours. We felt we had seen enough then of Barbados.
So we took a quick trip down town (Bridgetown), checked the shops and the church, then walked back to the ship.
The band was loud and Caribbean style. They played Jimmy Buffet songs real well. Since people were dancing they played other types of music as well.
And no, we didn't order drinks from this drink cart.
We did dance a little here after the 'dance lesson' session had finished.
I've already sent my congratulations to Mrs. Jim.
Looks like she had a wonderful day.
One thing though, where does she had all the calories from that big birthday cake?
She's slim as a teenager.
Probably did a lot of dancing??
I sure hope Adi was glad to see you again.
