    It's 6pm in Barbados and the sun, which has been with us since 7 this morning, is now sinking fast on the horizon like a large red rubber ball, so it's time to end my evening dip in the ocean and head home for supper.
    The undergrowth is busy with insects; the crickets begin tuning up their orchestra of night music and the tiny tree frogs start their noisy chorus which sounds like an endless squeaky wheel turning.
    Back home the air is fragrant with the scent of the wood from which my house is constructed and, with the daylight now gone, I go out onto the verandah and light some lanterns as passing neighbours call out their night time greetings.
    It's time for a sundowner and of course on any self respecting Caribbean island that means rum! Rum and cola is always good, but tonight I concoct a classic rum punch and sip slowly before heading into the kitchen to make my evening meal. (Classic rum punch has a simple formula. One of sour, two of sweet, three of strong and four of weak. The traditional recipe is published on Recipezaar as Trinidad Rum Punch. I can heartily recommend it, but treat with caution, it's strong stuff and really does pack a punch!)

    Well, for one I spend quite a lot of time dreaming of cruising in Alaska!
    One year I took a friend to visit Edinburgh, Scotland, and we did a tour of the city on an open top bus. It was the traditional Scottish weather... dreekit I think they call it.. swirling mist, grey and cold, and this in August! The guide who was to do the commentary introduced himself to everyone and then went around the bus asking where everyone had come from. When we said Barbados everyone shrieked with laughter at the very thought of us leaving here for the climate in Scotland!
    Anyway, don't be jealous, come and visit Barbados. I know you would love it!

    Wow. I can see how the people in Scotland must have thought you were crazy!
    We actually almost went to Barbados for our honeymoon, but we chose Grand Caymen instead. We'll get to Antigua and Barbados some day!

    My island would be Barbados because that is where both my parents are from and I've been there many times. The first Prime Minister of Barbados, Earl Barrow is my cousin and we loved going to Sam Lord's Castle for dfferent events he would host there. My favorite fruit are the golden apples--- you can make anything just about with them! My other favorite thing is the Mount Gay Rum distillery where the world's oldest rum distillery is located. Yummo! Red Fish and flyig fish are another staple with a corn meal dish was to die for! Just so many to list here...

    My favorite dish here in Antigua has to be "traditional Antiguan Sunday Breakfast" this is a stewed salted cod fish dish known as " salt fish " served with side dishes of boiled eggs, slices of fresh avocado, and Johnny cakes (fried dumplings) I look forward to the weekends so my family and I can enjoy this meal together. An afternoon on the beach is often in order shortly after. :0)
