Barbados East Coast and Harrismiths

Recently went on a photo-safari to the East Coast of Barbados with a friend and found myself taking snaps of scenes that I used to enjoy as a boy: back then taking, it all for granted, soaking up the sun and basking on beautiful beaches, actually BREATHING; now, recalling those long past days through the lens of a camera, seeing the beauty as if for the first time and not sure, really, why I ever wanted to live any where else but Barbados!  The better part of these photos are of a tiny, little-known corner of Barbados called Harrismiths where once we would go at the invitation of expatriate family friends to lime and play on moonlit nights, eventually welcoming the morning sun with exhaustion and gratitude.  Apart from significant erosion of the beach, the ruins and general atmosphere of Harrismiths remains unchanged in 35 years!
