One of the standard back-to-school assignments for many is "What did you do on your summer vacation?" John and I went South to the Caribbean - Barbados and St. Lucia.

One of the interesting things about Barbados is that George Washington visited there in 1751, the only place he ever traveled outside North America. He was only 19 years old and was accompanying his half-brother. It was in Barbados that he learned about the military which changed the course of his life.

The house George Washington rented is a very nice museum and was a fascinating place to see. Google George Washington in Barbados if you are a history buff.

St. Lucia was beyond beautiful. We stayed at a working cocoa plantation, elevation 1600 ft., which had no air conditioning but didn't need it because it was cool. I brought one pair of long pants and wore them every evening.

The lush tropical plants so near the rain forest of St Lucia were exquisite. I saw a fern about the size of a VW Bug. We completely relaxed there and I managed to read four books.

The spiritual high point was standing on the balcony surveying the mountains and worshipping the God who created such an amazing planet. When God created it all, He declared it "very good" in Genesis 1:31. Indeed creation declares the glory of God. Our own slice of God's beautiful creation is pretty amazing too!
