Ship docked at Bridgeport and today's tour headed for
a mohagany carving gallery, a rum distillery and a plantation house.
We met Reggie Medford, the owner of the carving gallery who is a
natinal institution here in Barbados. He uses the reclaimeed trunks
of mohagany trees that are being removed from construction sites.
We then moved on to the Four Square rum distillery. Highest rated spice
rumbeating out Captain Morgan.
The tasting was the best part... of course...
Purchased a 12 year old rum... tastings to follow at home...
Also bought a rum liquer.
Off for lunch and tour at a 300 year old sugar plantation mansion.
The Sandbury plantation. Lunch was good but we had to ask for hot sauce.
I guess the locals figured us North Americans couldn't handle the Bajan hot sauce...
Tomorrow, St Lucia and a volcano.
