Free as a bird
We are in Miami today just me and the free-as-a-bird-other-half. There are plans and motives and proposals of high-end shopping, high-jinks drinking, high-life eating and high-fidelity dancing, but let’s be honest we will probably be wrapped up in bed by 8.
The reason we are on our own is because our 12-year daughter is on her way to Barbados with the Bermuda swim team, after qualifying for CARIFTA, which is the Caribbean youth games (U18).
She travelled with her team mates and will stay with them and the coaches for the whole event which lasts until next Tuesday and takes place at the Barbados Aquatic Centre in the south of the country a couple of miles from the centre of the capital Bridgetown (photo).
We will fly down to Barbados to watch her tomorrow evening and stay until the end of the competition.
She is very excited, and we are very proud of her, but first a pina colada.. 🍸
