Spent the week of the Thanksgiving holiday with my kids along with Lisa and her kids from Dallas, Texas.  Lisa found this great house for all of us with a pool and a full time cook and house cleaning staff.  And of course it was right on the beach.  We had a great week as the weather was perfect and there is so much to do on the island of Barbados.  Scuba diving, day sails, swimming with turtles, going inside caves, surfing and zip lining were things done during our visit.

If you want to go for kite boarding you can find great conditions in Silver Rock and Long Beach that are near the airport.  De Action Beach (246-428-2027) is a good place for instruction and rentals of kite boarding and wind surfing equipment.  Houses are for rent directly next to De Action and the telephone numbers are 246-424-7263 and 246-424-7910.  There is also a small hotel with pool and restaurant next to De Action.  Call the guys at De Action for the name of the hotel.

Over at Long Beach a good rental would be 246-434-9000.  www.TerraCaribbean.com.
