I Beat the Barracuda

 

It’s true. Until our trip to Barbados last month, I had been bullied at every single reef we had ever snorkeled. A Mexican barracuda even charged me once. Didn’t matter what country we were in or who else was in the water, the Barracuda has always disliked me.

In Barbados, I ate that Barracuda for dinner. And he was deeelicious.

So this was our “surfcation.” After a year of dealing with an Achilles rupture, this was the carrot at the end of the stick to keep me motivated with rehab. An anniversary present to my foot. Dutch was happy to comply with my foot’s surfing demands.

Besides surfing, other highlights of the trip included: 2 puppies, 3 sunken ship wrecks, 12 fish sandwiches, infinity rum punches.

Sit by the ocean, drink coffee, and play with Patch

Serious sunscreen application

Surf!

Snorkel, swim, read

Watch sunset while surfing

Rum Punch

Eat giant plate of fish at local fish market

Fall asleep watching for shooting stars
