I have just returned from the most fabulous holiday in Tobago, staying with my two grown up children in Warm Breezes. We went to celebrate my sons 30th birthday and we could not have spent it in a more beautiful place!!

The apartment is huge. More than enough room for at least six people so we three had more than enough room to spend together and also to have time alone. The veranda on three sides has two hammocks one dining area and a seated area which gave us wonderful views ( even watching a couple of hens walking up the road was interesting!! ) The lovely Peggy was there every day to tidy up etc and we loved her and really looked forward to seeing her.

There are beautiful wind chimes in every room and a few outside, the sound is lovely and if you ask, as l did, the ones outside are for sale. So now l have a daily reminder of a wonderful holiday when l look at my chime. We all became bird watchers as the variety of birds that will visit was vast, together with butterflies and the occasional lizard we almost did not need to go out!!.

Down the road is Pleasant Prospect, just a few small buildings, a couple of restaurants The Fish Pot, lovely food and a good atmosphere. Marie’s consists of one table outside and choosing to eat whatever is available on the day. This is exactly why we chose to go to Tobago, to meet the local people and spend time “liming” with them, it is a completely different way of life than we experience here in England and one that many people envy. The laid back attitude and genuine friendliness and warmth from people that have so little money but so much love and generosity was worth the 9 hour flight!!

Gill and Paul were the perfect hosts, l feel that from the moment that we met that we had come to the right place, almost like coming home. Both are genuine caring people and made us feel so welcome. They were available daily for any questions regarding the island and making the most of the short time that we were there. Introducing us to Neil who took us on a tour of the island and was quickly adopted as part of our family! Also dropping us at Ru B Lou’s for cocktails and music and Sunday School to eat at Sachas and dance to the steel pans playing Christmas carols, an experience we will never forget.

Walking down the road and visiting the bird sanctuary was a great experience as we got there at feeding time, so many beautiful birds. Also a bit further down the road was the beautiful Grafton beach and l feel that if we had gone nowhere else we would have been quite content to spend the holiday there, lovely beach, not many people, palm trees and pelicans. However a short walk in the opposite direction was Mt Irvine beach, good for surfing and great roti from a stall beside the road if you get there at lunchtime. Later on when the fishermen come back you can buy fresh fish very cheaply, great to put on the barbeque beside the pool in the evening.

It was the most wonderful holiday and was not spoiled by the delay at the airport, as it is hardly a hardship to leave your luggage at the airport to go to Crown Point to have a cocktail and watch to sunset, then pop into Bonkers for supper. Fabulous!!!!
