Back In Barbados

A couple weeks ago, I traveled to Barbados to meet up with my parents. They hadn't seen me(other than through Google Hangouts) since September which is actually the longest time in my life. Suffice it to say, I was excited to see them. 

After picking them up at the airport, we headed to St Lawrence Gap for lunch and a nice walk on the water.

We headed back to our Airbnb house fairly early as they had had a long day of traveling and I wasn't 100% sure I'd be able to find the place again(see Blessed)

The house was nice but fairly secluded and definitely off the beaten path. 
Yeah pretty secluded. 
The nice thing about Barbados is that you really cannot get too too lost, just find a bus stop and go towards or away from the city. 

The next morning we hoped on one of the to-city buses and spent the morning in Bridgetown a UNESCO heritage site.

After several miles of walking around we thought it was high time to do some rest and relaxation, so we found a nice beach off the beaten path and settled in for a bit.

After getting our fill of the shade, we found some Banks and some sun and did some more relaxing:)

As you can imagine, most of our trip was comprised of rest and/or relaxation. This was the first time in a long time I've seen my parents enjoy the water(slightly warmer than the Cape).

And just to change things up a bit we found a really secluded beach closer to our house which was really great and had a nice little cliff walk.

After extensive beaching over the weekend, a nice beach-side lunch was in order:

Oh and did I mention the monkeys? They were our guard dogs, literally hanging alongside the walk to our house.

A very different one than when I visited with Kenny back in January, but equally enjoyable and it was very nice to see my parents and lose consistently to my mother in Scrabble:)

Until next time,
