Picture Perfect Mullins Beach Barbados
Mullins Beach, Barbados May 6,2010 (click image to enlarge)
So, I was "liming" on the breakwater after eating my lunch at Mullins Beach yesterday and snapped the above photo of what still is for this blogger what is truly one of my favorite spots on the planet. It probably has something to do with the fact that I was born just across the road from this location on a spot now occupied by a "LIME" (the main telecommunications company on the island) - no pun intended. Back then the whole area was still called Bayfield after the sugar plantation which owned the lands. But beyond being around where my navel string was buried it always brings a sense of pride when the tour buses and cabs slow down so others from all over the world can catch a glimpse of this magical location. It remains one of the last locations on the west coast of Barbados where one can peek at the white coral sands and the world famous Barbados Blue Caribbean Sea from Route 1 which was the main "highway" on the island up to about twenty years ago.
