The redevelopment of the Inner and Outer Careenage is definitely one of the projects I like. I believe it brings some beauty to the Wharf area. Seating along the waters edge along with the new walk way is absolutely wonderful.

Small and medium fishing boats used to dock in the inner part of the Wharf area pass the swing bridge. But since these improvements are in progress small fishing vessels are not allowed pass the swing bridge. It is rumored that after the project they will be allowed back. And if it so, they may have to pay a small fee to moor along the walkway. I personally do not see the Government permitting them back. Let us wait and see.

For an update on the redevelopment you can view more images at the blog site of gallimaufry.

Walking Bridgetown
Roebuck Street, Bridgetown
St. Michael, Barbados
(08-03-2006)

It was hot and humid. My hat was of some use but I was fuming. I walked along Roebuck Street towards my aunt’s floral shop. As a kid I paid no attention to this building or any other building on Roebuck Street.

But I fell in love with it that day. I began to dissect the structure in to pieces with a series of shots. Then this old man rode into my shot. I was angry for a bit but it subsided. I continued to shoot. It did not matter in the end. Hunger took hold of me and I got a Granola Bar from my camera bag and pushed on, looking for the next shot, the next subject, the next…well you get the idea.

Sea Bathing at Night

Brown's Beach, Barbados
Sea Bathing at Night

The first thing that comes to mind when you think of a sea bath is DAY TIME and SUNSHINE. But here in Barbados a sea bath is anytime of the day, particularly at night. This is such a big thing here that folk silhouette the beach at night. The water is warm at nights and you can have a good soak.

Bring lots of friends and you are sure to have a good time.

Remembering my youth…mangoes are sweet…

Directly behind my aunt’s house is the mango tree of the neighbor. I am thinking like a child again. I am itching to go over the fence and pick some. Well, maybe I should just ask for the sweet fruit.
