This beautiful two storey limestone and timber house is elaborate with its lovely windows and hoods. The grand entry to the home is magnificent. The detail in carpentry is awesome and you probably would not see a house being built with this sort of architecture today.

Sadly on April 22nd 2008 this architectural wonder located on Crumpton Street was destroyed by fire, leaving it a shell of itself. Maybe it will be gutted and rebuilt with as it was before. At some later date I will post some images of the burnt out grand house.

A View from Worthing Beach

I exited the Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary into the beastly heat of the day. Tired from shooting views from the sanctuary, I needed to relax. I did not have to look far. Across the street was salvation, the cool waters of the South Coast beckoned. Looking both ways of the street I walked across to the white sands of Worthing Beach.

Admittedly, this beach was never on my radar as a child. Beaches like the Hilton, Hastings Rocks, Accra, Dover, and Miami were the names I knew. But I never rode my bicycle no further than Accra Beach in the early and late seventies. Accra Beach was my beach of choice as a youth.

But Worthing Beach humbled me. The views in either direction of the sea coast were awe inspiring. It seems like some place an artist would come and spend the day painting. The colors were beautiful. The blues of the water glistened and rippled. The sea was calling, but I had to settle for my feet being bathed in the cool waters of the evening. I had to consider my camera gear.

Departing from the lovely stretch of beach, I knew that my return was a foregone conclusion. So for all those who venture to Barbados for whatever reason, kindly navigate to the South Coast of the island, and rest your weary soul on the sandy shores of Worthing Beach.
