My Favorite Island: Antigua

The coast of Antigua from Shirley

This past Sunday afternoon Betsy and I were watching DVDs of our grandchildren when we decided to watch a DVD of our honeymoon cruise in the eastern Caribbean.  We visited several islands — St. Thomas, St. Maarten, Antigua, St. Lucia and Barbados.  It was a wonderful cruise.

Betsy asked which island was my favorite.  That wasn’t an easy question to answer, but I finally had to say Antigua.  The coast of Antigua was absolutely breath-takingly beautiful.  The ocean was a gorgeous blue in contrast to the rocky cliffs.

In addition to rocky shores Antigua also has beaches and history.  In 1784 British Admiral Sir Horatio Nelson established a base on Antigua for use against the French.  We were able to visit that base, Nelson’s Dockyard.

Our day in Antigua began with a beautiful sunrise and ended with a gorgeous sunset.  To see more of our visit to Antigua click HERE.
