Caribbean Queen | Barry Bowe

If Captain Jack Sparrow and Will Turner are Pirates of the Caribbean, doesn't that make Elizabeth Swann a #CaribbeanQueen ?

I thought of Zarite (Tete),born a slave in Haiti when it was under French control as San Domingue as a #CaribbeanQueen 👑she is purchased for Valmorain, a Frenchman who inherited his father's sugarcane plantation there. It's been a decade since I read this book while on an Allende phase.

Cinfhen Allende just doesn‘t jive with me 🤷🏼‍♀️ 5mo

#wanderingjune @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB #CaribbeanQueen I immediately thought of the fascinating Marie Laveau. Although based in New Orleans, she practiced Voodoo which always makes me think of the Caribbean. Her grave is now one of the most visited in New Orleans. Some even say she‘s not really dead.

Cinfhen Cool!! And I love the pineapples 🍍💛 5mo

Several years ago I went to Barbados for a work trip. Beautiful place! We took a tour around the island and got to see the school children going home in the afternoon. #CaribbeanQueen #WanderingJune

#thechaseis10 @Cinfhen @TrishB you know my obsession over Anne Hegerty? She will always be my #1 Chaser lol - look at her statistics! 🤣🤣🤣

She may be the queen of quizzes but she isn't a #caribbeanqueen, however, as she's like me & doesn't like the heat! #wanderingjune @BarbaraBB

TrishB Cool 👍🏻 5mo
Cinfhen Hahaha!! U and Anne can run away to Alaska together ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️ 5mo

#WanderingJune One of my favorite Alice Hoffman novels is the story of Rachel Pissarro, mother to Camille Pissarro, a 19th century impressionist painter. Set on the island of St. Thomas we learn about Rachel‘s life as a refugee from Spain and the small Jewish community that formed on St.Thomas following the Inquisition. It‘s a captivating story of a #CaribbeanQueen and her future generations.

GlassAsDiamonds ♥️♥️♥️Love Alice Hoffman!!! 5mo
TrishB And another stunning cover ❤️ 5mo
BarbaraBB I know Camille Pissarro (a contemporary of Van Gogh) but not that his mother was so interesting! Are you having a happy birthday💃🥂? Cheers to many more 😘❤️ 5mo
