What I’ve been reading: May

Question of the month: What’s your favorite holiday and why?

My favorite holiday was fairly recent, October 2011. It was our second trip to the Caribbean Island but this time my sister and her husband joined us (which made the trip even more fun – wink, wink sis). 
I know I said I was going to share pictures of our trip back in October but I clearly forgot.

The highlight of the trip for me was Barbados. We went to the same beach this time around. What made it so amazing? Turtle hatching! Right next to our towels. It was absolutely amazing to see those little creatures make their way to the sea. At least 100 of them. Words can’t describe how fascinating it was to see them emerge from the sand (after 20 min of searching I can’t find the best capture of the hatching).
Here are a few pictures from the trip.

Aren’t they adorable

    I love how you interpreted "holiday" to mean a vacation. Where Skylette interpreted it to mean "National Holiday." 🙂 These pictures make me miss the beach! I need a relaxing vacation…-AJfittraveleraj.blogspot.com

      Funny, before I moved to States "holiday" is what we called vacation in Europe, so it always stuck with me 🙂

    The pictures of the turtle hatching makes me turn to mush inside. What a miraculous little thing. And the instinct to just make their way to the sea? Fascinating!
