That’s right. The letter K. As in K for Karaoke Kruise. I know, I know. I promised you all the story of my adventure home from the Bajan Green Reggae Road Show on Friday. But first I want to tell you about today’s beach fun. I promise I’ll make the Reggae Road Show post tomorrow.
I got to the beach shortly before 4pm (the sun was really hot today so I didn’t want to go earlier. I’m not convinced there’s enough sunscreen on earth…) Anyway as I was walking down the path to the beach, I could hear lots of kids screaming and music blaring. I knew the beach was busy. When I emerged onto the sand, I could see that there were lots of families with young children and, anchored out in the water, there was a charter fishing boat. That’s where the music was coming from. At first, I thought the people on board were fishing. But no, they were just partying. I swam for a bit, listening to the music and festivities. After a while, I decided to lie on my towel in the sun. And this is where the letter K comes in. Because I heard an announcement that the karaoke was about to start. So I lay there on the sand, listening to really awful singing. Bajans love their karaoke, and I give them full kudos for trying. All in all, it was really entertaining and it made me smile as I lay in the sun in Paradise.
The letter K also carried into my dinner plans. As in Kathleen got lazy and didn’t want to cook. So I hopped on the bus and went to East Moon again. I thought about going to Just Grillin’ in Holetown, but I decided that I was REALLY tired of fish and plain rice and salad. My dinner last night was basically what I would get at Just Grillin’. And while the food there is really tasty, I wanted something different. So, for $52 bbd ($26 US), I got Vegetable Fried Rice, Chicken Chow Mein, Beef with Broccoli, and a Banks beer (to drink while I waited for my food). I’m easily going to have leftovers for a couple more meals. See?
