Will We Crash? Or Should I Only Be Askin... I keep waiting for the bottom to fall out in my bookings here at St Lawrence Beach Condominiums.  So far, though, so good (it was difficult to type that with my fingers crossed).  Of course we have the benefit of it being high season as well as the current bookings having been made before the economic...
Being Cold in Barbados... I grew up in Colorado. I started skiing when I was 13. So I know snow. I know winter. I know cold.

They sit at the edge of the...
Barbados South Coast Boardwalk... The Caribbean Sea laps up next to Barbados' south coast boardwalk. I couldn’t wait for the construction to be finished to explore the new boardwalk in Barbados a couple of days ago.  It’s gorgeous!  It runs 1.2 kilometer from Rockley Beach to Hastings in Christ Church on the south coast....
Barbados Yacht Club Loos... The sign in the Barbados Yacht Club ladies locker room loo Hmmm … this is what ladies see when they, um, occupy a loo at the Barbados Yacht Club ladies locker room. Makes me wonder whether men are also asked to flush after they’ve been used...
