Life is good on this Caribbean jewel

Life is good on this Caribbean jewel: "After this past winter of our discontent in Calgary — a cold, snow-choked, relentless trek through gloomy economic news — Barbados came to my wife Gayle and I like a life preserver tossed to floundering sailors.

This verdant, pear-shaped island nation, which can easily fit inside Calgary's city limits, sits alone on the eastern fringe of the Caribbean, 160 kilometres from its nearest neighbour, St. Lucia. From Barbados' dramatic east coast, there's nothing but 4,000 kilometres of ocean until you make landfall in Africa. And unlike many of its Windward Island cousins, Barbados is not volcanic in nature, it's a big ol' chunk of coral and limestone."
