Antigua Is A Great Place for Visitors in January!

Air Canada and WestJet both fly directly to Antigua from Toronto for fairly reasonable rates. Starting in January friends came to visit.

We had several projects to get done on Moorahme, so we stayed in Jolly Harbour Marina.

A hike up the hill side, gives you a great view of the anchorage at Jolly Harbour !

One of the first places we like to take visitors, is Jolly Beach. The sand and sun are gorgeous…

And of course, the sunsets are spectacular!

The surf and the sunset.

 

It was great to meet up with friends we’d met in Grenada –  The crew on MickBeth! (Santa knew Gwen & Robin needed mermaid’s tails)

We got to know the local mermaids !

Going in to St Johns is always fun but Saturday is market day. The sights and sounds are kicked up a notch or two!

Our first visitors were Tim and Mary Brown. A day at the beach; another day to St Johns and the Market.

Our friend Mary wasn’t too sure about the fish with the head still on – It’s staring at you, Mary!

 

One of my favourite days was when we took a tour of the Island. Antigua is rich in history!

Island Tour -Partialy restored sugar plantation, Betty’s Hope.

Tim and Randy – checking out the machinary at the sugar mill.

Devils Bridge where dispondant slaves would through themselves into the sea.

The tour took us to Shirley Heights where you can get a stunning view of both Falmouth and English Harbour s.
