Turtle watching in BarbadosDecember 24, 2017 in Barbados ⋅ 🌬 29 °C
We spent our morning swimming with turtles! Nice cruise up the Barbados coast past half-million dollar houses to a reef where we swam amongst turtles 😊 a great experience. The big ones got right up close, swimming around and underneath us if you stayed still. It was a little jarring with the number of people there, especially given some of the frentic activity when a turtle came by and some people even touching them 😕 The reef was also teeming with other aquatic life which made for fab viewing! After the swim, we returned on the boat before a wander into UNESCO protected Bridgetown.
The town itself was a little underwhelming but the walk along the promenade was very pleasant.
Unfortunately, by the time we returned that evening, I had become one of 'those' people - a beautifully punk western tourist, despite sunscreen. Lathered on the moisturiser and pledged to look for more sunscreen!!Read more
