Well, we’ve just returned from a winter holiday comprising 10 days in Tobago. We were able to take the entire family, our first such holiday in many years, so there were 10 of us. We rented a beachfront villa in Bacolet, just outside of Scarborough. You can see it here. Natasha and Malcolm were wonderful hosts and the various animals (Bongo, Pink, newly-born Honeysuckle, Georgie, Mary, and Daisy) were a delightful addition to the visit.
While not knowing what to expect of the people and the place, we found both to be very pleasant. Everywhere we went, the people were accepting and helpful. I believe this was not because we were tourists, but because that is their nature. The countryside is beautiful, with beaches and hills everywhere and anywhere.
Most of all, it was a time for our family to get together for an extended period, reconnecting as we have been unable to do for a long time. Such extended family times can be stressful, but not this one. Everyone got along extremely well and cooperated to enable each of us to have a great vacation. I was proud to be included in the family. Here’s hoping we will be able to do it again sometime.
