A Trip around the island paradise of Barbados


With so many shots from last week's trip I hope I am allowed another travelogue. Last time I featured the plants in all their glorious colours. I hope some of these surprise you as much as they did me- the first one could be from an English county. Barbados = sugar in the old days and this Sugar mill stands as a proud monument to that heritage and industry.

Nowadays tourism is the industry which makes foreign exchange revenues and creates jobs, with many fine golf courses being a significant draw for those tourists.

Keeping an eye on baby
Just showing off my Hand stand
Rugged East coast
Watching me watching you....

Waterfront at Bridgetown


Not sure this roller is going anywhere anytime soon....

Have a wonderful day!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla https://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
