Sail On, Barbados!  2009 Mount Gay Regatta

Sail On, Barbados! 2009 Mount Gay Regatta

If you’re not in Barbados, you’re missing the Mount Gay Regatta 2009, which began today.  I’ve been watching the sailboats sailing pass by all morning.  Here’s a photo of it I took for you:

This morning I received an e-mail from a guest who’s coming from “Winterpeg,” as she calls it … where it snowed last night! I can’t wait for her to get an eyeful of this.

You want to see another photo?  Oh, okay, if you insist :)   Here’s one that includes a bit of our jetty at St Lawrence Beach Condominiums.  I swear, as long as I live I’ll never get over the stunning range of blues I see in the beautiful Caribbean Sea in our back yard.

As you know, I’ve been doing a lot of grousing lately about the effects of the down economy.  Today I spent an hour or so on our jetty, enjoying the warmth of the sun on my skin and having a great time taking photos.  And you know what I say to the whiner I’ve been? “Shut up, girl, look outside of yourself … or, at the very least, just look outside …”

(Do you see the sailboats way off in the distance? They’re there, many of them in a dead heat. Exciting!)

    Another wonderful post…. what can I say? I often wish we Bajans appreciated our home as much as you do.

  2. Isn’t it true? I fail to sit in awe of the Rocky Mountains because I grew up with those in my back yard. You’re right, it’s too bad. I feel lucky I get to live in a place of such beauty, beauty I can actually recognize and value. I hope my awe never ceases. xx Thx for writing.
