Barbados Surfers Have Arrived

barbados-surfing

Every year just before Christmas the skies of Barbados are filled with multi colored kites that signal the surfers have arrived! Between December and April the trade winds pick up and surfers from all over the world come to Barbados to take advantage of our beautiful climate and beaches.

I was lucky enough to be at Silver Sands beach the other day at the perfect time. The lighting was just right and the beach was packed with wind and kite surfers and I was able to get some great pictures. You can find them “HERE”

That’s one of the great things about using the Mac OS. It makes it really easy to create some very cool stuff that you can share with friends and family or use as a tool to promote your business. The new Mobile Me service has lot’s of great features included. For more info on how anyone with a Mac can do it just go to the Apple Web Site.

Enjoy!

Wine World In-Store Tasting January 23rd

wine-world

Dear All,

Here we are in the New Year, full of new wines, perennial favorites and a full agenda of wine and spirits events.

Our Fridays complimentary In-store Tastings resume on January 23rd, with an exciting lineup. For this Friday we have chosen 4 impressive Pinot Gris from different wine regions: from New Zealand – Kim Crawford Marlborough Pinot Gris 2007 full and rich on the palate, and Nobilo Icon Pinot Gris 2006 with a rich oily texture and balanced acidity, Nobilo features at an introductory special price of BDS 39.99. The King Estate Pinot Gris 2006 from Oregon with concentrated flavors of tropical, stone fruits, and citrus and Alois Kracher Pinot Gris 2006 from Austria with a nice freshness to the nose but a quite richly textured palette with typical fat, spicy Pinot Gris flavours.

Pinot Gris (or Pinot Grigio as it is known in Italy) is usually delicately fragrant with lightly lemon-citrus flavors. Depending upon ripeness at harvest, vinification technique and wine regions Pinot Gris can be tangy and light, or quite rich, round and full bodied like some of the wines we will be tasting this Friday. 

Come to explore these outstanding Pinot Gris at the complimentary Wine World In-Store Tasting all day long this Friday January 23rd.
