February in Barbados: Books, Beach and Beer.
We used to be adventurous travelers, walking – or at least driving – perimeters of islands to see it all.
These days we enjoy a more relaxing winter vacation. Even though we’re young, my husband and I are not above staying in “old folks hotels” where clientele play cribbage in the afternoon and evening bands cover Frank Sinatra.
Sunset comes early in the Caribbean. After watching the orange ball sizzle into the sea, we make early suppers in our room – salad and yam with butter one night. Rotisserie chicken and green beans another night. Last night from our balcony we heard an unusual set of songs from the restaurant band. Billy Joel, Kat Stevens, Simon and Garfunkel.
What are these people thinking? Music from the 70’s? This is an old folk’s hotel!
