On Out an About, a blog I follow, I recently read a post about a Kookaburra visiting that reminded me of the first time Mom and I went to Barbados in 2009 and were visited by some of the local wildlife.
Barbados Green Monkeys
I remember one morning Mom was in the kitchen of our villa, making coffee, when she yelled out, “Kathleen! Quick get your camera and get outside!” Not knowing what she’d seen, I grabbed my camera and raced out to the yard. I was immediately greeted by monkeys – specifically Barbados Green Monkeys.
There were so many monkeys! At one point, there must have been 15 or so, of all different ages. They were in the street, climbing on the cars that were parked there.
Some of the younger ones were REALLY curious and came right up to our gate.
On our last day in Barbados, we had a really close encounter. Mom and I were packing up and Mom went out to our porch to collect our towels. “Hello, Mr. Monkey!” she said. I walked out, and there was a monkey sitting on the ledge, just as chill as could be.
Have any of you had any neat wildlife encounters? I’d love to read about them!
