FFFF Pigeon Point Tobago

FFFF Pigeon Point Tobago

After exams and a few days off from work, my daughter went to Tobago for a couple of days last week. We have lived in Trinidad since 1992 but never made the time to go over to the beautiful holiday island where the eccentric Sir Norman Parkinson (Parky), photographer extraordinaire of royalty and famous models made his home long before anyone other than Tobagonions lived there. He set up a pig farm in Tobago and marketed "Porkinson's Bangers' supposedly because he missed real British sausages commonly known as 'bangers'.

However this is not about Parky. This is about the foto my daughter's took of the spot that is used all over the world, to market the Caribbean. The famous Pigeon Point.

Pigeon Point Heritage Park is often considered Tobago's most beautiful beach and is home to the famous thatch-roofed jetty which has become an internationally recognized signature of Tobago. The resort includes a long stretch of white sand beach with warm aquamarine waters.

The photo below (not taken by my daughter) is how it is portrayed on many a brochure.


Hope I haven't broken the rules of FFFF

  1. Should we start a Foto Friday here on Blogger? No links but just all post a favorite photograph on Friday. I like what Frani began and find myself unwilling to let it go totally.
