I’m not a great one for lying on the beach, soaking up the rays with a trashy novel; I tend to want to get in the water as soon as possible, and stay there for as long as possible. When I’m not in the water I soon get restless and feel the urge to grab my camera and go off exploring.
It was just such an occasion when I took these photos; it was my first trip to Barbados and my first time on Browne’s Beach, and it wasn’t long before I wandered up the beach and came across a boat being built.
The two gentlemen pictured were generous enough to pause their labours and indulge my questions about their work. After a friendly five minute chat, I returned to my sun lounger and rum punch, and they returned to their hard work.
