Waves traveling 5000 km across the ocean before hitting the East Coast of Barbados

This picture is from the East Coast of Barbados. Also taken during my last job as a Tour Leader there in April. It is beautiful but dangerous... Really strong currents and unpredictable waves. A nice spot for topsurfers in the world but NOT a please to swim.

And one more thing - can you imagine that before the wave hit the beach it may have come all the way from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean (since there is nothing in between) and that means 5000 kilometers!

The good thing on the other hand is that up the hill you have a payphone to use if something would happen :-). Isn't this lovely?!
