“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.” — Mary Jean Irion
Some of the sand in Barbados is made up of washed up coral! Chip even brought home a large brain coral in Lilly's suitcase.
Almost immediately, off to the pool! Aafter the gut-wrenching, confusing drive to the condo where we were staying.) In Barbados, they drive as the U.K. does, on the opposite side of the road and even the steering wheel is on the opposite side! I had to clench my teeth a few times that Chip didn't hit the curb because of on-coming traffic on very narrow roads and because how easy it is to go on the wrong side of the road because of habit!
At night, we played many card games; memory match, go-fish, Uno, and 500's (but, I call its 200's since we never want to call it 500's). Lilly is doing what she does best...being silly!
