Friday 11 February 2011, Barbados

It seems that the farther south you go in the Caribbean, the better it gets.  We sailed into harbor in Barbados this morning about 8, had breakfast on our balcony as usual, then Jac disembarked to find a Hotspot – with no luck.  I had found one on-line prior to the cruise, but it turns out it is in the Boatyard a couple of miles south of the harbor, and I didn’t feel like making the trip.  We went up to the Sun Deck and hung around at the pool – Jac practiced putting on the putting green for a bit while Sue sun-bathed.  Following lunch back on our balcony, we boarded the Tiami Catamaran and set out for Paradise Beach.  Capt. Derk and his crew (Kim, Sam and the others) were the best we’ve seen.  The boat dropped anchor and we snorkeled in absolutely clear water while Sam fed the sea turtles.  What a sight.  A member of the Princess crew came with us to film a portion of the cruise DVD and she did some underwater filming of the turtles.  After snorkeling, Capt. Derk headed the boat into shore and dropped anchor so we could enjoy the tropical Barbados beach, near multi-multimillion dollar condos and very high-end hotels.  As always, there was plenty of rum and beer on board for the trip back to the Caribbean Princess.  Tonight is a formal night, but Sue and I opted to stay casual and eat outside, poolside, with fare from the buffet.  Need to get my tux on right now, because we’re headed to a piano show.
