Trip report June 5-12th

Just back from our first trip to the island. Very warm but a great breeze kept it nice enough all week. Had a tropical storm on the 9th that dumped quite a bit of rain and very windy. Rest of week was sunny and pleasant. Rented a car from Coconuts and it was great. Stayed at the Crane resort (see seperate report) Having a car was needed but we knew that going in. First night just got groceries and had a burger from Chefette and it was very good. Stayed by the pool at resort 2nd day and went onto the Gap for dinner at del Sol...average dinner and drinks there. Next night at at Bellinis and had a great table overlooking beach. Food was good but atmosphere was better. Next night after the sun and sand went into the Gap again and ate at McBrides. This was outstanding for the food and service. Had dinner at Carib Beach Bar the next night and it was good also. Took a drive to Basheba the next day and saw the windward part of the island. Had our Anniversary dinner at Champers and the railside table was the best along with the Barracuda for dinner. Of course we went to the Oistens fish fry on Friday night and had a blast. I had the Marlin and wife the Dolphin. The sides, music, and service we great. The day of departure we hit the airport early and it was very modern and clean. Cannot say enough about the friendly people of Barbados. We were allowed to wear shorts to dinner every night including Champers. They could have been nicer and said they were glad to have us. We decided to eat as cheap as possible other than Anniversary. We think the food is not the issue but wanted to have a relaxing time and enjoy the people and Bajan hospitality and we did that. Can't wait to go back
