THE PEOPLE OF DRUNK BAY


The Drunk Bay Trail is .3 mile beginning on the left (east) at the end of the Salt Pond Bay beach.
It follows along the north side of Salt Pond, and over to the shoreline where waves are always crashing.

The entire beach area is a spectacle in and of itself with rock art scattered across the entire beach.




Apparently, it’s become quite a tradition to create people and animal art out of coral, shells, driftwood and anything else washed up on shore.






The name ‘Drunk’ is taken from the Dutch Creole word for ‘drowned’ 











I could not find anything about the origin of this popular art form,just people expressing themselves with flotsam and other debris washed ashore...





A bientôt,
Pierre Candra
