the second port of call on our caribbean cruise was barbados. while we were in barbados, we took a coast-to-coast tour of the island. we learned about the history of barbados and admired the magnificent views.
our tour stopped at one of the highest points in barbados for a panoramic view of the island and the coastline. there are monkeys that run wild all over barbados. while we were at the lookout point, we got to see a green monkey up close. (as it turns out, even though they are called green monkeys they are not green at all!)
we drove all around barbados, visiting historic landmarks and little villages along the way. we saw old sugar can plantations, and we stopped at several lookout points for breathtaking views. we also visited bathsheba and got to see the amazing rocks that sit along the coastline. although they look like boulders, they are actually rock formations broken away from ancient coral reef. the big rock looked like it was levitating above the water! while at bathsheba, we had the chance to taste raw sugar cane and to drink coconut water straight out of a coconut too.
barbados was absolutely gorgeous. the island had such beautiful pearly pink sand beaches and clear blue water. it was lovely. here are a few of the many, many photos that we took in barbados . . .
