Without Further Ado

I'm really tired tonight, so you get Antigua without much commentary.

Of all of the places we visited, Antigua felt the most like a third world country. There were small cars and what looked like miniature minivans everywhere. Everyone drove like maniacs - including our tour driver. He even gave himself a scare at one point.

Tourism is just about the only industry. The shopping district is right off the piers.

Until the mid 1900s there was some sugarcane production. The structure at the end of this lane is a remnant of the last sugar mill on the island.

There were mountains and cliffs with wonderful vistas. This is one of the harbors.

A view from the cliffs.

A sailboat underway. I don't think I could ever tire of the views in the Caribbean.

I'm thinking of your posts this week as a virtual vacation!
