We are having a lovely time on the island of Barbados with the Cunningham Clan. The house is on Gibbes Beach, one of the few beaches that hasn't had a hotelier move in. The crystal clear water in its aquamarine glory is literally a few yards from our doorstep. We have spent hours floating, skiing, snorkeling, and sea glass collecting in the sea.
When we are on dry land, we are tooling around in our Mini Moke, what used to be the cool island car but now just pegs us for tourists. It might be the banana yellow color.
What really surprised me about the island is the variety of landscapes. One part of the island-- the Scotland district-- is quite mountainous and named thus because it is reminiscent of the Scottish highlands. There is also a cave system and deep gullies with amazing flora in them.
