A beautiful stretch of sand at Dover Beach Barbados

It’s 7:30 on an ordinary weekday morning. All around the world people are going about their business, getting ready for work; commuting; kissing their kids before sending them off to school.

But I’m in Barbados, toes sunk deep into damp white sand, my shoulders warmed by the Caribbean sun, my hair tousled by a brisk morning breeze. Here at Dover Beach, the main beach in the tourist hub of St. Lawrence Gap, neat rows of chaises are lined up in front of Sandals Barbados. Within an hour they’ll be filled with sun-seeking guests, eagerly prostrating themselves beneath a cloudless blue sky. Runnesr and walkers will make their footprints on the sand, and the air will be filled with the delighted shrieks of children playing at the water’s edge.

But for now, I have this winsome strand all to myself. Which makes this anything but an ordinary weekday morning.
