Barbara in Barbados- Day 6

Day 6 in Barbados.  Wow.  Geno and I got up and walked to the gym for a nice workout about 7:00am. I don’t get up that early when I’m at home working but the sun is up here about 5:30 and it is pouring through the windows.  Between the sun and the sounds of nature (chickens, roosters, tree frogs and birds) you can’t stay in bed very long.

These shots below are worth every hour I spent at the gym this week. So then we came back to the house and eat on the porch and had chat time.  Then off to Brandon Beach. We took the bus and then walked over to the beach.  Of course the beach was beautiful.

The lifeguard, Ron, was great…we saw him on this rescue surf board and he let us take a few pictures with him.  We just enjoyed the afternoon and evening on the beach.  Enjoy the pictures.

 

Barbara in Barbados – Day 5

 We were going to go to Bathsheba which is in the north part of the island however the rain was strong.  We did make it to a few beautiful spots.  We stopped at the Animal Flower Cave where the view was truly breath taking, as we stood over watching the water a storm came.

The drive over to Cherry Tree Hill was amazing as was the sugar cane I got to walk through. The area got a much needed rain and we ending up back home after visiting the Wildlife Preserve where I sat in this beautiful old tree. 

This morning as I slept the rain came through like a monsoon.  Then the sun came up like clockwork.  The weather reminds me of when I lived in Tampa for 7.5 years. Liquid sunshine (rain) one moment and real sunshine 10 minutes later, typical tropical weather.

We had a cup of coffee on the porch as we have done daily since I got here.  I tried to get used to the sound of the chickens and roosters crowing…it’s a haunting sound, and they crow whenever they want to.   I just heard one crow. I wonder if they are in pain. Okay, I’m working on figuring the video thing out… I’m on vacation, that will have to wait. Oh well.
