Some odd things do happen in this little island, so sought after by droves of visitors from throughout the world. This particular scene caught me by surprise, however, deviating from anything in the standard lexicon of our island imagery: A veritable fleet of Harley-Davidsons. The location, or in this case its parking lot, was Accra Beach in Christ Church, Barbados, one of the most pristine and most visited of all the beaches in Barbados. As traffic was crawling along the small main road, I decided to stop and revel, photographically speaking, in the pageantry of engineering, industrial design and sheer numbers of the classic Harley-Davidson motorcycles seen here. No, I am not a real motorcycle fan, but some 30-odd Quebeçois are, apparently having taken their bikes along for the ride on the cruise ship that brought them to Barbados! Not a bad way to cruise the Caribbean! FYI: no cyclists were on hand to witness me with my camera; they were surely all on Accra Beach getting as much sun, sea and sand as they could before heading back to the Great White North.
