Ceramic Sunday, wash bowl.
This suitably palm tree-decorated wash bowl sits on its homespun yellow stand in the folk museum on the island of Tortola. I suspect that it will have been manufactured and shipped out from England at some point and regret, now, that I wasn't sufficiently nosey at the time to look underneath in search of any trade marks.
Main Street is a jumble of vibrantly coloured clapperboard houses
and, judging from this photograph in the museum, it has changed very little over the years.
Another museum photograph shows a woman collecting salt just by scooping it up with her hands.
Main Street is all luxurious plant growth, joyful colour, warmth and sunshine - just what we Brits are starved of!
Not to mention the aromas wafting from the spice shop!
