Last Wedding related post

Well, to finish up Kelly's Korner Show Us Your Life - Wedding Edition, I'm putting some of my honeymoon pictures up. Mr. Potts and I flew down to Barbados and stayed at the Crane Resort and Spa. It was absolutely wonderful. You'll notice in all these pictures that I didn't touch my hair down there. Pretty much 100% humidity guaranteed that there would be no straightness for me.

It was absolutely beautiful there & the highs were in the mid 80's the whole time. Once we arrived at the resort this was the first thing we saw.
We checked in & they handed us the "Island Punch". Indeed!Mr. Potts took his punch out on the balcony of our roomThe view from our bedroomThe next thing we did was change in some money for Barbadian currency.Because we had to have money to purchase what we would be drinking pretty much all week.Our first night there. We obviously found a tiki bar & more Banks beerA little cafe on the resort where we usually had lunch. Great little sandwiches & yep, you guessed it. Banks!Mr. Potts made a friend. But he wouldn't let me bring him home.
The view from our deck was amazing.
Mr. Potts & I loved the infinity pool. You notice who is taking most of the pictures, right?These were left in our room one day to congratulate us on our marriage.We found a wonderful restaurant situated on the water of a little bay in a town just one over from the resort. We were able to sit outside on the water and watch the turtles swim right under us. I tried to take pictures, but I have no skills for capturing turtles swimming at night. We also found a Mexican restaurant (more Tex-Mex) & had Coronas and Mango margaritas!
Another night we found an Irish pub. Fun little place
We spent most of our time here and at the poolsWe had a wonderful time!We for sure didn't want to leave.
Too bad I caught a very NASTY bug the last day. From eating locally caught fish. Thank God for first class upgrades or I may not have made it back. It was such a severe bug that it was tracked by the CDC & the Health Department. Yep - that's the kind of luck I have.

All in all, it was a wonderful time away for us. We'd love to go back, but maybe in a few years.

One last look
