SOME YEARS AGO, upon this spot of land in Fitts Village, sat a tiny chattel house. In it lived a little old lady. To the left of the house was a view of the sea; to the right of the house was a view of the sea; over the shingle rooftop, a view of the sea. The little old lady was a faithful worshipper at St.James Parish Church. She took ill and called for a Reverend to administer Last Rites, or whatever. A Reverend trotted along to her bedside (false English accent and all). No doubt in his briefcase (or whatever Reverend fellows tote around) would have been documents galore relating to Windows To The Sea, for which donations were being requested for a fund to maintain windows to the sea in Barbados.
The little old lady died. Soon after that, the little chattel house was gone, and ….. BEHOLD! This is the mansion that sprang up in its place. ON A WINDOWS TO THE SEA! You want a view of the sea? Get a helicopter.

Barbados Free Press comments: Gosh, it is too bad that whoever that Reverend was that he was unable to convince the old lady to keep the Window to the Sea! 🙂
