Travel Swellness: The beauty of Barbados

IMG_7022

In December, I got to visit Barbados for a second time and it was just as beautiful and friendly as I remembered. This time, we stayed at St. Peter’s Bay, and I really liked the boutique feel of this resort. It felt very private and cozy, and there were beautiful sunset views.

My favourite meal would have to be the Sunday brunch we enjoyed at 13°/59°. There’s live music, and sitting in the shade in the marina with upscale brunch dishes (I had lobster that was grilled perfectly) with a cold flute of champagne — it’s very chic affair.

As much as I like enjoying a flying fish sandwich with my toes in the sand, getting dressed nicely and being whisked off in a boat to this refined brunch was just lovely.

And I was also ready to eat all of the food on the menu as this was the brunch after I’d run the Barbados Half-marathon that morning. You can check out my race report here.

Yes, we spotted turtles during our little boat cruise one morning! And a monkey or two during our Sunday brunch.

I loved my surf lesson at Dover Beach. The waves were manageable for me, a beginner, and the water was warm. My instructor was from Hamilton, Ontario, funny making a Canadian connection, eh? In this lesson, they taught us to pop up onto our feet (all the other lessons I’ve done we’ve been instructed to get up one foot at a time).  I managed to get up on the boatd a couple of times.
