So how did I spend a clear day in Barbados?
I had a very nice breakfast with my colleague Jon and another captain who was flying back yesterday, taking my cabin crew home. We sat in the lovely garden of a nice little cafe called Coffee Barbados Cafe next to a small museum, and saw a monkey. It was such a nice setting, and the breakfast was good! Baked smoked salmon on sour dough roll topped with poached egg, washed down with a very nice cappuccino. I then met a friend who lives here and we had a lovely walk along the beach.
After this lovely walk, I met up again with my colleague Jon, and as he is a scuba diver and it is more than 24 hours before we fly, he went for a dive, and I went on a snorkel trip and swam with the turtles, and then swam over one of the wrecks and saw many fish. Later that day we went out to a restaurant that I’d heard a lot about called Tapas – and that is what we ate – although they do have entrees too. Great restaurant, great atmosphere and fantastic setting – right by the waves! Well, I have had some boring times in the past on trips – but – this is not one of them! In fact, this is one of the best! A nice trip to celebrate 28 years in BA.
Tasty Tapas! No wine tonight though – flying tomorrow!
My next post will hopefully have some pictures of the aircraft and flight deck, if I get time to take any.
