|Subject: Barbados for the Weekend|
Just in time for hurricane season, we too are traveling to the Caribbean this weekend. I've heard that Barbados is "below the hurricane line" (?), so that we won't affected. I do hope and pray those in the path of the current storm can stay safe and see little or no damage.
On a happier note, this is a last minute quickie trip. I was encouraged by the recent National Geographic Traveler article/awards on green tourism. It is our first visit to Barbados, albeit short. We will be at the Casaurina Beach Club (2004 winner of green tourism award from NG) which I think is on the south coast. It is not one of the fancy or pricey resorts on the island. But, for just a few days of r & r, I'm hoping it will be fine.
Any suggestions for sights, restaurants, places to avoid, etc. We are primarily interested in just doing a morning or afternoon jaunt around the island, and then vegging out. We tend to travel on the economical side (I know - Barbados isn't a good choice then!), but will do a nice meal while we are there.
Looking forward to some sun and praying for others in the region, Vanessa in Sunny Wine Country Long Island
