The Barbados waters

Barbadians have a saying that the sea has no back door....and I think they mean the Barbados sea.The older people always use to call it living water and some still believe that it has a mind of its own....you will find that the people of Barbados have a great respect for the sea,some may even say a fear....many are surprised at large number of people living on this island who just can't swim or have no desire to swim.A visit to the beach usually means that you take a sea bath ,which is just a little dip in the most shallow area you can find....

I like to see the contrast between the waters of east and west coast.The east coast is like a semi angry monster ready to devour all living souls while the west coast is somewhat like the same monster calmly luring you into its clutches........of course they are some who would attempt in some small way to conquer the Barbados waters.

Now I explained to the customer care rep on the phone that I did all of this already(except asking for the senior person) and it didn't work.I queried as to if it would be possible for she to give me the information so that I can configure
