  • Local Barbadian Artist

    Local Barbadian Artist holding a painting of marine life

    Sadè Payne is a young, up and coming, talented, local Barbadian artist. Her art expresses a pureness of form that she says comes from within. She has an autonomy of expression using both light and dark to create atmospheric portrayals of fantasy and realism. This is a reflection of the natural, impulsive, carefree individual that she is. Sadè’s art is limitless, her vision is towards new and unique creations.

  • Sea Turtle Holiday Experience

    Sea Turtle Holiday Experience HatchingLet me tell you about our sea turtle holiday experience.  Sea turtles were something we had only seen on TV wildlife programmes.  However, during one of our holidays, staying on the west coast of Barbados, we were lucky enough to have a truly magnificent and unforgettable experience.  Around 7.45 one evening we had just taken our seats on the decking outside one of the beachfront restaurants in Holetown, when we spotted a large dark brown shape, dimly illuminated by the restaurant’s lights, on the shoreline nearby. We thought at first that it might be a large crab or a ray swimming in the shallows. As it came closer, much to our joy and amazement, this soon revealed itself to be a hawksbill sea turtle.

  • Caribbean Love Affair

    Caribbean Love AffairThe Caribbean love affair began when I first came to Barbados on my honeymoon many years ago.  Little did I know that it would be the start of two lifelong love affairs – one with the man I married and one with the island paradise in the sun.

    I could tell you about the virtues of being married to Arthur but I suspect you’d rather know what brings me back to Barbados year after year, and why it will always have a special place in my heart.

    When I tell you I come from Canada (aka The Great White North) you’ll know the winters are seriously long and frigid.  In -20 c. temperatures and deep snow, the thought of that wonderful Bajan sunshine in January gets me through the dark November days.  By December, I’m mentally packing my bag with sunglasses, sandals and sarongs and can hardly wait to leave the down coat and polar fleece behind!  I know that aches and pains will disappear and the sunshine (not to mention the odd tropical cocktail) will have a therapeutic effect as soon as I step off the plane.
