A Day in Barbados with Zeb, Soapy Smith and Bucket Duck

We step off the ship in Bridgeport, Barbados.   And the sign said we were welcome here.

It is so nice and warm here.   We walked to the shopping area.

This shopping area is just for us and other cruise passengers.   Bucket is leaving us to go with his parents for another shore excursion.   Zeb and Soapy Smith Duck are browsing with our moms.  Oh no.   We ducks have seen these stores before.   Inside we go.   After a long time, to ducks it was long, we came out.

Maybe this bag is new traveling bag for ducks. Humans get the emeralds.

We are bringing another emerald back to Colorado.   Our human moms love Colombian Emeralds, International.   The emeralds here are beautiful and the humans just have to go inside to purchase at least one item.   OK, shopping is done.   Now two ducks and two humans get a taxi and we head for the beach.

We made purchases at building behind us.

Beverages are sold here and we purchased several diet Cokes.   So cool and refreshing.   We love this beach.

The humans take turns walking along the beach, one of their favorite activities.   Here is Soapy’s mom strolling on the sand.

There were a few other humans here, but there was another visitor to our beach.

Actually, this is his beach and we are the visitors.   This curious crab has the tallest eyes we ducks have ever seen.   Our moms have been to Barbados before, so they just wanted some lazy, quiet beach time today.   Bucket and his parents took the Jolly Roger Pirate Party Cruise and Snorkel trip.   They are on a pirate ship for about 4 hours.   One stop is here in a beautiful protected area.

The water is so warm and swimming is perfect.   Back on the Jolly Roger Pirate Ship, the captain heads around the island of Barbados.   Soon there is another stop for snorkeling.

Wow!  A sunken ship wreck.   Bucket was there, but snorkeling equipment did not come in his size.  After swimming and snorkeling, they have a great lunch on the deck of the pirate ship.   After lunch there is dancing, laughing and visiting with other pirate ship passengers.   Bucket said this was a great trip.   But he wants snorkeling equipment in his size.   Sorry Bucket, but that is probably not going to happen.  We ducks and humans all meet for dinner to share our adventures.   Cruises are fun.

  2. So cool. We spent a day in Barbados as part of a cruise and spent most of it exploring the island saving beach/sea activities for the later islands. Glad you enjoyed the island and nice to see a different outlook than my own. Have written about it on the blog so have a read please. Cheers
