Boston to Barbados And Back.

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with Alpine Lakes Real Estate Inc., NHRE# 02863

I have been out of the "Loop" for this past week, as my wife and I took a much needed Vacation to the island of Barbados. Many of you know we live in the sticks so getting to the Airport takes some planning. The night before our scheduled 6am flight we stayed in a airport hotel in Boston.

 

Sun setting on the city of Boston...A picture of things to come.

A November to remember, winging in to a Caribbean island was A nice way to start our first day, 12 degrees above the equator (Hot..Hot...Hot).

The First night at our island home...warm ocean water, moist breezes and something frozen with a touch of rum

The Reef in front of our place was perfect for a little snorkeling (and I'll share some of my underwater pix later).

My wife Vonni and I at one of the Many fine dinning options. I have a deal with my wife not to publish anything about being away in any of my social network platforms. We live in the sticks but no sense in telling the world we will be away from such and such a date...and the house will be vacant for a period of time.

  Excellent trip to the Almond Beach Village in Barbados, nice vacation and I'll share a few more stories after I unpack and answer the 458 emails and 42 voice mails I got while I was away...and promised not to go on line for a week.

More to come stay tune...sorry again to my friends for dropping off the map without a word, but these days there is no other way to get out of town.

Bob...I'm not tto concerned about a car trip away for the weekend...But being out of the country for over a week...and telling the world you'll be away is not a great idea. Steve

From the looks of you photos, it looks like you had a fabulous vacation!  My husband and I have a deal of no computers on vacation...Cell phones are okay (for emergencies), but when we go on vacation, we feel that it is "Our" time.  Glad you enjoyed "Your" time.

Amy...We have tried to visit as many of the Caribbean Islands as we can, and we leave a voice mail on our cells that we are unable to retrieve messages in St.Somewhere" will call you back upon our return.

Steve...I had an idea you may be gone.  We try not to advertise when we will be gone.  Although, not quite the sticks it is rural enough to be an easy target.   Good to see you back.

Looks like a great trip.  I haven't been to Barbados  but I have been to other islands in the Caribean.  Beaches are beautiful.

Debbie, This is not s desert island like many others, if you don't like the humidity this is not the place. The Jungle like heat made for an adventure ,visiting Sea Turtles and a full array of water-sports made this "Holiday" a lot of fun.

Steve - Nice to see a picture of you and your lovely wife in the photos. As far as the reef photo, I want to just sit in front of my computer screen imagining the warm breeze while sipping on a frozen beverage mixed with a splash of rum. Ahhhh

Steve.. I had noticed you were NOT on AR for over a week.  I was plannnig on sending you an email to make sure everything was ok.  Glad to hear you and your wife were away, and not that something major wasn't wrong.

This was a good jump start for the two of you for the holidays...right?

Val...I know my friends on Activerain would wish me well on a much needed trip, But there just are too many other people that can see what you are doing...in our global media, So Alas I felt it better I not post publicly that we would be gone for an extended period of time. Good to be back, thanks for noticing my absence.
