Finally we hit the reason for this 45 in 45 list!
About a year ago, my friend Libby suggested that a group of us go to Barbados to go surfing during the week of Veteran’s Day. She and several other friends had been there and knew it was a great place to learn. So a group of 9 of us bought plane tickets, reserved rooms at a guest house on the southern part of the island, booked surf lessons and surfboard rentals, and counted down the days.
Of course, in the midst of all this, I got a new job. Which I started 2 weeks before we were leaving. So I negotiated and still took my vacation. And what a vacation it was!
A++++++ and huge thumbs up. Would go again, in a heartbeat. Would take Amy with me next time. Highly recommended. So much fun! So much laughing! So much sunscreen! Such great hair (apparently my new hairdo is perfect for the salt-water-tousled look)! Such great friends! Can’t wait until next summer, when I get pull on a wetsuit and try again here in New England. And I’m already plotting my next trip down there…
