Barbados...my island home! 
This vacation, as promised, I wanted to share with all of you some of the sights I took in while 'playing tourist' at home!   

Just a few facts about Barbados:
  • Was a former British Colony
  • The island became independent on November 30, 1966
  • Has a population of 280,000+ inhabitants and the capital is Bridgetown
  • 'Bajan' is the dialect we speak but, also one of the names we call ourselves
  • Is the easternmost Caribbean island 
  • Consists of 11 parishes
  • Is a relatively flat island, known for its warm, sunny weather; however, we do experience a hurricane season
  • Loc'd music stars Allison Hinds and Arturo Tappin; along with Shontelle, Rihanna and Hal Linton all come from Barbados
  • Awesome beaches, wonderful food and music, beautiful people! A most precious place to be!
Soak up the beauty and relax...

  1. Gorgeous Pictures!!!!!!! Oh my goodness I can only imagine what life is like living on an island!!!!!!!!! Not to mention all the wonderful seafood!!!!!!!

  2. LOL! Thank you, A-Q! I borrowed a Canon from a friend of mine and guess it worked its magic.
    It is a beautiful, charming island. I guess sometimes, to be honest, we have the tendency to forget how scenic this little rock is; and, how precious these views are. People come from near and far to see them and to taste what we have to offer. Someday you and Rocco can come by!
    The seafood and the recipes are limitless!

  3. sounds like a plan, Gonna put that on my wishlist for travelling!!!!!!! Rocco, is going on a special secret trip next week (cant wait to 'break' him in officially. It's the kind of trip I would have loved to take Nico on ;-))

    Have a fantastic weekend!!!!!!!

  4. I keep thinking if I stare at the pictures long enough I can beam myself there. lol. Beautiful.

  5. @ FoxyLocs - If it were only that easy! But thanks. The invitation is extended, who knows someday you may get to visit.

  8. Hey Tasha! My week was busy and I'm really looking forward to calmer times. I just have enough energy to wake-up and come home and go straight to bed!
