Bridgetown, Barbados

Barbados

December 26

We had a nice Christmas Day aboard the ship.  I did get to sit on Santa’s lap and I told him all about ICF!

We had dinner with Marilyn and Charlie and saw another wonderful show by 4 Ever.

And look at what I finished in art class.. my sock monkey!  I named her Singe (French for monkey) because I made her in French West Africa!

Barbados has a British influence.  Bridgetown is the capital and largest city.  It was established by the British in 1628. It is well known as the home of Mount Gay Rum! We have been to Barbados a couple of times in the past and decided to spend the time snorkeling.

Today we chartered a catamaran with 10 of our friends – all world cruisers.  We went to two snorkeling spots.  The first was to snorkel with the turtles, but there were no turtles to be found. We did see one from the boat.  The second snorkeling spot was a good one, though.  Lots of nice fish and coral.  We also had a great time with the rum punch!

I gave up trying to use my iphone under water, I will need a better system next time.  I waste too much time fiddling with it and I miss the beauty of the experience. So now I am going for the experience.  The heck with the pictures.  Although Sandra and Bob both do a good job with their equipment so I am sure they will share some pics.

Great time!
