Barbados trip

I got back just over a week ago, and missed all the snow and cold,

Just wanted to say we had an even better time this year (we say that every year, it just gets better and better, we keep discovering new things and new friends),

The people are fantastic, the island is beautiful and our memories will keep us going for another 10 months.

Did a lot, but not much. I'm sure you regulars will understand this statement. Do walk the new boardwalk, take some long bus rides and check out the cricket at the Dover Sports Ground.

Wasn't Me cat trips with Captain Ron are fantastic, and Saltash on a Friday night if you are down on the South Coast is a good time.

Southern Palms bar early evening is good, you are virtually sitting on the beach. Happy hour 6-7, not mondays though.

I stayed in Dover area, so any questions fire away.

regards

Welcome back Billy. Been back almost 3 weeks now so Barbados seems a long time ago but your mention of the boardwalk, bus rides and the cricket at the Dover Sports Ground has brought back some lovely memories.

More bad weather forecast in the UK this week so you may not have missed all the snow!

Glad you had a good time Billy. I'm off to Dover in 3 weeks to see the cricket. Did you have any problems with mosquitoes ?

I get eaten alive here during the summer in Toronto and I'm hoping they aren't much of a problem down there.

T minus 6 days and counting before I fly out! Cannot wait, especially after being buried under a foot of snow today!
