Snorkeling with @IslandRoutes and the “fish whisperer” at Carlisle Bay, Barbados. Our snorkel guide knew how to get the fish swimming in a perfect circle around him creating a fish tornado !! Photo by Mike Theiss @SandalsResorts #LiveFunner

The tropical sunrises in Barbados are simply amazing ! We have been waking up to reflecting palm trees and beautiful purple skies every morning. It’s so peaceful to sit on the beach and watch as the sky changes colors during sunrise. It’s a perfect way to start the day !! Photo by Mike Theiss. #SandalsRoyalBarbados @SandalsResorts

We are happy to announce our next assignment in Barbados !! Barbados is an eastern Caribbean island located in the Lesser Antilles of the West Indies, an independent British Commonwealth nation. Bridgetown, the capital, is a cruise-ship port with many historic colonial buildings. Around the island are beautiful beaches, coral reefs, shipwrecks, botanical gardens and the Harrison’s Cave formation. Local traditions include afternoon tea and cricket, the national sport. We are excited to have this expedition sponsored by @SandalsResorts and look forward to a having a great time as usual. Follow along over the next several days as we post photos and videos from our activities around the island. Photo by Mike Theiss

(Dashcam capture) While storm chasing in tornado alley my Garmin dashcam captured a rare phenomenon called "upward-moving" lightning, also known as "ground-to-cloud" lightning. I witnessed this TV tower get struck 3 times in a 10 minute span. The third strike occurred when I was close to the tower and it was truly incredible. The lightning shot straight up from the tip of the tower and branched out like a tree up into the clouds and flashed several times before it finally discharged all its energy.
