So you’ve called Barbados your home for a week or so now. You’ve snorkeled, surfed, swam, shopped, ate and drank rum punch!
But, have you hiked six miles along the South Coast from Oistin’s Bay to Bridgetown?
This hike took me roughly eight hours, but I got sidetracked! Along the way I stopped off at the Hilton to frolic in a cool little cove with some tourists from New York and learned how to play beach-ball.
I didn’t start the day thinking I would be gone so long so I didn’t bring liquids. I thought I would just go for a walk but I’m the type who needs to see what’s around the next corner. No worries though, because at one point there is a hotel who allowed me at the bar for some refreshments with the staff. Funny, even the birds enjoyed the bar.
A little black bird was hopping from bottle to bottle slurping up the liquor on the rims – he did this for awhile until he got drunk and sort of fell-flew away! It was a fabulous treat to watch and there were a couple more stops along the way (do bring water though). You will most likely run into some fishermen with buckets, stop and visit and check out what they are catching!
The majority of the hike is easy. Some spots required a scuffle over some limestone, up on the road for a minute but then it was back to the beautiful beach.
There are two ways to see B’dos. From the inside and from the outside. You will be pleasantly surprised at what you have missed riding around in a ZR.
I’m not going to tell you, I will let you discover that for yourself!
