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.

Face to face with a vicious Akita

I came face to face today with a vicious Akita,me and my little girl, luckily I had her in my arms while we were about to walk through the West Terrace district.We came around a corner and there was this huge Akita.It was actually taller than my little girl.She would have been looking it straight in the face. Now I am naturally afraid of dogs even the smallest of Chihuahuas.I avoided eye contact with the dog although peripherally I could see that he stopped and looked up at me.I continued walking calmly as though there was no threat about. Why do I say he was vicious? That is what I am hearing from people living in the area.Maybe he was just out of his territorial zone but I hope his owners keep in fenced in a lot better.That is something that I wouldn't want to happen again. Just a few months ago a child was mauled by an Akita.There was a time when the main dogs you used to encounter was the 'lowly' salmon tot retriever;A unique Barbados mongrel.Such is not the case now.To
