My Barbados B
Photos from Barbados. I took these photos while I was there in December 2003.
My Barbados A
These are just random photos I've taken on Barbados over the years.
Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary
Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary is a part of the Graeme Hall Swamp National Environmental Heritage Site - the last significant mangrove and sedge swamp on the island of Barbados. Carefully designed boardwalks, aviaries and observation points occupy less than 10 percent of Sanctuary habitat, so that nesting activity of Caribbean flyway birds is not disturbed.
Ocean Park
Ocean Park is a unique attraction bringing the spectacular underwater world of Barbados to all - without having to get wet! Ocean Park displays a fascinating collection of freshwater and tropical marine life of the Caribbean in a way that is exciting, unique and educational. What I like about this aquarium is that many of the exhibits are outdoors in the open air.

St. Nicholas Abbey
St.Nicholas Abbey, located in the parish of St.Peter, was built in 1660 and is one of only three genuine Jacobean mansions in the Western Hemisphere. Distinguishing features of this magnificent, well-preserved mansion are: curved Dutch gables, chimney stacks and coral stone finials, a Chinese Chippendale staircase and fine antiques and china.
Pelican Village
Opened in 1999, Pelican Village is an attractive, spacious shopping village offering the very best of local handicrafts, and providing the opportunity to see Barbados' craftsmen at work. Located on the outskirts of the capital city of Bridgetown, Pelican Village is the first stop for cruise visitors as they disembark at the Harbour.
Just a quick jaunt around the island. Speightstown, then cross country to Cherry Tree Hill and then down the East Coast.
Last day on the island and another visit to Bathsheba for some lunch. I couldn't resist a few more photos.
