444. Barbados #1
This beautiful postcard arrived to me from Monika all the way from Barbados. I'm very happy because it's my first card from there and (as some of you might know) I'm a huge lover of all islands. (I even moved lately on one of them - Cyprus).
Tucked away on the south coast, past the Crane Beach and Sam Lord's Castle is Bottom Bay, a wide expansive beach with smooth rolling waves riding onto the shore.
The beach is semi enclosed by high coral cliffs, providing a panoramic view of the south shore. The scene is completed by the presence of tall palm trees that add to the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere of the bay.
Always a popular picnic spot, it is also becoming a popular place to live and a number of homes are being built on the tops of the cliffs overlooking the beach and ocean. People who live there report spotting turtles and whales in the waters below the rocks.
Bathing here is not recommended, as the waves are very strong, and great care should be shown by those who choose to do so.
