Trade Winds

I do love an international medley, and here on Barbados, we’ve found that it’s possible to have quite the multinational breakfast table.

The papaya and lime are local, as is the Barbados molasses, but the pepper was packed in the US, the yoghurts were made in France, the jams in Costa Rica and the butter in Ireland.  The coffee (not in shot…..) was processed and packaged in Switzerland and personally imported from the UK.

Our visitors didn’t seem to mind.

In fact they’ve probably seen it all before.

    -BTW loved your post the other day when you were telling us how beautiful it all was & wondering why you were in front of the computer. Hard habit to break.

    • Hi Kathy, Thanks, it is lovely here, with a very pleasant pace of life, but the point of being here is to write! So that’s why the PC is a fairly constant companion. So far just little bits of writing achieved, but I’ve been ‘settling in’!

    I thought I should check my spelling, and have just learnt that there is/was also a pawpawsaurus, which lived on earth during the cretaceous period. No apparent connection between the names. And it can be paw paw or pawpaw. Either way, tastes good. Hope you are having a wonderful balmy relaxing holiday.

    • Hi Jill – a woman after my own heart checking in the dictionary and being led to new words. The sun is shining now which I can appreciate so much more after the first couple of stormy days. The great displacement activity is watching the weather roll across the horizon.

    Great irony is that we in northern England have the hurricane; apparently worse in Western Scotland ! Glad it is all going so well .

    • I’ve seen some news reports. Hope the roof is still on. The sun’s been shining here for a couple of days now!
