Travel ::: St Lawrence Gap


We decided to head into Oistins and St. Lawrence Gap for a Friday night out.


Finally got a shot in front of our famous backyard palm tree.


Oistins is an active fishing town and every friday night, the Oistins Bay Garden hosts an event called the Fish Fry that brings tourists and locals together alike for a big party.


The real draw of the Fish Fry is the amazing food served by all different types of vendors. 

We enjoyed walking around and grabbing a little taste of each and not choosing to eat from just one. We had some delicious jerk chicken, coconut shrimp and piƱacoladas to go.


The seating was communal making it fun to watch all different types of people gathered around the same table to enjoy the island's food and culture. 


A row of colored kitchens.


When the Fish Fry was becoming over crowded we hopped in a cab to St. Lawrence Gap.

This place was more my scene, calm and relaxed, with live bands serenading the crowd.


Palm Trees and Christmas lights <3


I snatched this top from Forever 21 for $17!


Alien Space Island Tourist?

We ended up at a bar called Sharkey's which leered me in with it's mesmerizing colors.


Rainbow lights under the bar top.



We ordered drinks and people watched for a little. The crowd here seemed to be younger and people who return to the island year after year to get away from their undesirable weather at home.



Do I blend in?


We then ended up at a big bar lot which seemed to house the biggest party on the block.

Banks is one of the locally brewed beers on the island. It was so refreshing!


Loud reggae, hip-hop and Rihanna (of course) bounced through the speakers.

Let's just say this crowd was a bit more entertaining to people watch. 


After a quick bite (cheese burgers yum) from the street vendors we decided it was time to go home.


Before slipping into the apartment to sleep, we made our way to the ocean to decompress from the energy of the night.


So relaxing - I thought this photo almost looked like a water color.


Goodnight Barbados' moon!
