Democrat and Chronicle: "My husband Don and I spent a wonderful, relaxing week on the beautiful island of Barbados. Having gained its independence from England in 1966, the island still maintains its British aura. We spent most of our days relaxing by the pool or taking long walks on the beach. We explored St. Lawrence Gap, a shopping and entertainment area. We took a snorkeling trip on a 50-foot catamaran. Our trip that day included lunch on the boat, and plenty of rum punch! Another day, we took a guided tour of the island, which included the eastern side of the island, noted for its rocky coastline."
