Route 2: Tapas to KFC
Rain and Clouds
In all kinds of weather. Rain and clouds create another world of effect and feeling.
In the distance behind us dark rain clouds hide the sun, it gleams through and lights the sea with a magic effect.
A fisherman is about to cast his net.
His dog digs for crabs in the sand.
Fisherman and Dog
Catch is bucketed, the dog still digs.
Into the silver light
Dog and man move with the catch into the silver light.
Rain Brings Fish
Another fisherman casts a line, 'rain brings fish' they say.
The weather changes quickly in Barbados. Today there are scattered showers as storm clouds from the Atlantic move overhead. Soon they will be gone and it will be sunny again - see a sunny day picture.
Rock and Wood Gleam
Looking back (just before KFC) . Rock and wood gleam in the mottled light.
In the distance are the South Ocean Condos.
The Main Promenade
The main Boardwalk Promenade juts out 100 feet to the sea. It is landscaped with palms and crazy stones with many places to sit.
It's right in front of Kentucky Fried Chicken, tempting to pick up a snack box and eat by the sea.
Previously on the edge of an inshore reef, KFC now has a playground at its door and an endless tide of people stopping by.
Friendly and Relaxed
Boys pose for a family who thinks they are brothers.
People are friendly and relaxed.
The Main JettyFrom the main jetty in front of KFC one can see right to Accra beach at the end of the boardwalk.
Inshore Pools and Reefs
Along the boardwalk there are many inshore pools and reefs, as well as man made reefs and groins.
Beaches and places to dip, swim and relax.
Remnants of inshore reef systems -bolstered with new groins to build up beaches.
At low tide, tide-pools trap fish and sea. Sea cats (small octopus) hide here and are much sought after by local fishermen. Walk early to catch the action!
Looking back from KFC (to Tapas Restaurant)
Not tired yet?Good because there's lots more to see!
Let's skip ahead to Accra Beach and, with the sun at our backs, make our way back to KFC! Let's go!
If you're ready to turn back, we can retrace our steps from the western end of the boardwalk at Camelot!
