Barbados by boat (Part 2)

Being on a boat at sea brings a whole new perspective, and serves as a good reminder of what truly matters in life. 

There’s no traffic on the water, and aside from the constant purr of the engine and intermittent conversation, the sound of waves lapping at the side of the boat, is the only music on the playlist. From the sea, the trees and houses look peeny. Houses are built much taller than us, so we appear even tinier from the ocean.

Sometimes, a butterfly or bumblebee passes by, even though we’re cruising pretty far from land. Brilliant yellow butterflies flutter around the boat, before making the long flight over to sea


The shore after the sargassum seaweed. Now, the stones and shells can be seen sprinkled like treasures along the sand. Only a week before, none of this could be seen – the shore was a foot high mass of seaweed (a fisherman’s challenge and farmer’s gift.)

When you touch land after being on the water, it’s with a refreshed essence, renewed sense of purpose, calm soul and sometimes – some really cool photos!
