Back from our weeks holiday with a few photos to share with you!
We identified Barbados as somewhere to escape to together, nearly thirty years ago. This year we got there at last, the flight being only five and a half hours from New York. It’s a beautiful island and we stayed in a lovely hotel on the West Coast.
Last week we heard that seaweed was being washed up in smelly heaps on the sand, so we weren’t sure what to expect. Luckily the worst was over, although there was still some to be seen on the East Coast.
The advice was to use it on the fields so it was being removed regularly and wasn’t a problem.
I loved the brightly painted wooden houses and cafes. Apparently the government gives out brightly coloured paint to the poorer home owners, to keep the island looking fresh and clean. They also get a rebate if they plant and keep their gardens at the front trimmed and tidy. Such common sense really gets everyone pulling together.
I thought you might like to see the school uniforms for sale in the department store 🙂
It rained some, welcome respite from the searing heat and sun. On a tour of the island we discovered sheep without wool. (I thought they were goats). No need for a woollen coat here!
We were lucky enough to be on the beach when some turtles hatched out, the turtle patrol were called to oversee their safety and helped dig out the eggs.
Amazing! We also booked a fun half day snorkeling over wrecks and swimming with some larger turtles.
Such a lovely inspiring week, now back to some projects!!!!
