Photographer's Note

The photo is taken from the pier shown in the map; it’s a part of the Grand Barbados Hotel. This hotel feels like it was once the nicest hotel on the island. When we stayed there, it was a little down at the heels, but perfectly positioned on Carlisle Bay. Just our kind of hotel; however, when I looked for a link, I discovered that it was no longer taking reservations. It is walking distance to Brown Sugar, a Bajan restaurant with excellent fresh seafood. It was the recommendation of all local people we asked. The night we were there, there was a jazz group playing.
The beach shown is in front of the Barbados Yacht Club. Once a garrison for the British, it has been a Club since 1926. It also allowed much faster internet access than the hotel.
The name Barbados comes from the island’s Portuguese christening of Los Barbados, named after the bearded fig tree, which grew abundantly on the island at the time of its discovery in the 16th century. This tree is unusual in that it sends aerial roots from its branches, thus giving the impression of being bearded. Here’s a link to a photo of a bearded fig.
