I just got home after a business trip to Barbados and here are some pics of the hotels I stayed in. Unfortunately, I worked the whole time and had pretty long days so I didn't get a chance to go out and take pictures of the local flavor.<p><b><u>Crane Hotel</u> - stayed here one night before they moved us.<p>The view of the patio and pools and ocean from the room I stayed in.<br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v179/clee130/photos/crane02-sm-1.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>A panoramic view of the pools an ocean from the room I stayed in.<br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v179/clee130/photos/crane01-sm-1.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>The view overlooking Crane Beach from the Zen Resturant on the Crane Resort Property.<br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v179/clee130/photos/crane03-sm-1.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Looking at one of the villas and the ocean.<br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v179/clee130/photos/crane04-sm-1.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><br><u>Accra Hotel</u> - stayed here the rest of the time I was in Barbados. My suite consisted of a small living area with a TV, mini-fridge, coffee table and small sofa and chair. There were two bedrooms: a master and a second bedroom, each with it's own full sized bathroom. The master bedroom had access to balcony with two lounge chairs and a table and a hot tub overlooking the pool area.<p>The view from my hotel room balcony. <br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v179/clee130/photos/accra01-sm-1.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>The view of the pool at night.<br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v179/clee130/photos/accra-night-sm.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><u>St. Lawrence Gap</u> - a strip full of resturants, bars and clubs that's always busy at night no matter what day of the week it is.<p>The harbor/beach near the entrance of the St. Lawrence Gap.<br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v179/clee130/photos/stlawrencegap-sm-1.jpg" BORDER="0"><p></b>

A lot of my co-workers went out after a 12 hour day to the bars in the St. Lawrence Gap and drank until the sun came up. Some of them did it the entire time we were down there. I couldn't do it. I need recovery time after my drinking.<p>We only got one day where we had half a day off and I went snorkeling. I'm getting those pictures developed today so hopefully, I have some nice underwater pics of fish and turtles and such by the end of the week.

Especially when a lot of the time, we were just sitting around staring off into space, with not a beach or a pool in sight.
