*Barbados Boulder Training Pebbles and Sand (Explored)

So I was standing on this secluded beach enjoying the sun and the surf and the music was just loud enough in in perfect beat with the surf, but not distracting my mind, when a boulder rolled out of the surf with a gravelly "Ahem" and accompanied with a rustling of rippling waves began a tutorial to the sand and pebbles on the beach on the merits of good posture and how to roll with the waves and wave your troubles away...

 

It turned out to be a long speech and I have heard solid evidence that it's still going on to this day! I am not totally fluent in boulder but I believe it was something like "Back when I was a pebble, I had to roll across the ocean in an ice storm 20 mountains high and the winds were cursing ..."

 

I was hungry from all that high falutin' listening so I moseyed on up to a nearby restaurant and lay in the sun that was just right...

 

Barbados may seem like a Olde Vacation Island of Yesteryear but it is still as spectacular as it has been in hundreds/thousands/millions of years and just far enough away from the main flow of travel to remain a spectacular destination.

 

Some might think it is a past paradise for travellers of long ago but it is more than just an island and the people who live here are full of adventure and Bajan logic "Cat Luck ain't Dog Luck" and "God don come, he's send". I firmly believe these are true.

 

The island is spectacularly beautiful and captivated my interest and enjoyment more than I expected and I hope I get to return and enjoy the sailing again :)
