A Coast To Be Ashamed Of

It is usually entertaining whenever one of these environmentally themed days rolls around to read the ads coming from the Corruption Zone Coastal Zone Management Unit in celebration of that day.  Their ad in the Advocate last week (pictured above) celebrating Earth Day is yet another duesy.  Only the genii at the CZMU could come up with the tag-line "Ensuring the Shoreline is a Coast to be proud of" given their record here on the west coast and especially in the Mullins Bay area where they have presided over the destruction of some of the best beaches on the west coast of Barbados.  Exactly who is to be proud of our coast when Conde Nast (one of the leading travel-related companies on the planet) recently described west coast beaches as "eroded little coves with no room to walk and mostly rocky?"

  1. hmmmm...quite an intersting description by Conde Nast, considering that I have had similar thoughts. I remember when i used to love going to folkstone and we could run up and down on the beach there as children (and i'm no where near 40)
