Travelogue – Barbados

The only other time I went to Barbados I stayed with my son up in the north of the island at Saint Peter.

That was 19 years ago, but this past year I was in Barbados twice, both times (first) and (second) to watch my daughter represent Bermuda swimming. Those trips centered around the Aquatic Centre, which forms part of the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex on the outskirts of the capital Bridgetown. The national football stadium Wildey Turf is also there.

Arriba Barbados

I’ll write a bit more on Barbados later as we saw more of the island in the Windward Islands this time around, although Carlisle Bay with the Kensington Oval in the distance was shrouded in darkness this morning when we left the hotel to fly back to Miami at the crack of dawn.

I said this last time we were there when my daughter was competing at CARIFTA (Caribbean Games) in April that it was exhausting and I didn’t so much as wiggle my toe in the hotel pool.

And repeat

We are on our way to Miami this morning, an almost 3-hour flight from Bermuda, and once again just like last time our daughter is on her way separately with the Bermuda swim team to Barbados.

This time it is CCCAN (Central American and Caribbean Amateur Swimming Confederation) Championships. The meet could realistically have been anywhere in Central America or the Caribbean, and selfishly it is a shame that we are back in Barbados again, although at least it will be familiar surroundings.
