Barbados was by far our FAVORITE island out of the 5 Southern Caribbean Islands we visited. It REALLY does look like the pictures you see online and there is so much to do there. Now I know why all the celebrities pick it to vacation ;). I definitely think it is an island we will visit again.
Our excursion was jam packed but completely FUN!! We started off by snorkeling TWO shipwrecks that have been sunk since for close to 100 year’s. One was a party boat and one was a ferry boat. This time the FISH were everywhere.
I LOVE how this fish even posed for the picture – kinda freaky that he/she was staring right back at me though. I wonder what the fish was thinking?
Our guide actually dove down into the shipwrecks and swam through the boat. He even coaxed an eel from coming out ~ creepy!
The sunken boats!
After our snorkel we headed over the Browns Beach. The beach was amazing in every aspect (minus all the tourists of course :D). The sand was so soft – honestly like powder without a rock or shell in site. You can actually walk from the ship to this beach if you wanted.
Check out how BLUE the water is ~ yes, this is the Caribbean Ocean!
Part 2 of our excursion was in this crazy Safari 4×4. Seriously ~ the drivers are CRAZY but more on that in a bit. Most of my pictures were taken as we sped past things. Here is a picture recap of our drive.
A fancy new hotel that is opening and is super expensive to stay.
The irony ~ the place that Tiger Woods got married 🙂
When we stopped outside, this guy brought a baby 11 week old monkey over and put him on The Husband’s shoulder. How cute is the monkey?!
The husband tried to give him a dollar but I guess he isn’t trained to take your money yet 😉
Plus a church
I wanted this little car
We stopped at a Rain Forest for Rum punch and pictures. Oh and so Tarzan could swing…..
The chicken was too afraid to cross the road because he knew how those Caribbean’s drive!
The HUGEST centipedes were everywhere ~ freaky!
Random pictures snapped on our drive.
The yellow machine harvest’s the Sugar Cane
We were all holding on for dear life, like this!
He stopped one time so I could snap a picture of this.
I LOVED Barbados! I totally want to go back now after that recap :D I think The Husband officially wants one of those little monkeys for Christmas now too LOL.
The next stop is St. Kitts ~ where you can actually see the Caribbean Ocean meet the Atlantic Ocean ~ cool!
Which island is your FAVORITE out of the ones I’ve shared so far?
Off to relax ~ Nite all!
