Today in Antigua I did a Photographic tour. I thought there would be major instruction, but it was more of a “Here is a pretty area. Take a pretty photo and we will tell everybody how great they are” type trip. At least we stopped at a few interesting places.
The first stop was Fort James. It was built in the 18th century to protect the British from French invasion.
Betty’s Hope was one of many sugar plantations on the island. It operated for a couple hundred years. It had as many as 393 slaves at one time. Six of them would be housed in these seven-foot square huts at one time. Ugh.
Twin windmills were used to crush sugar cane.
The most scenic view was at Devil’s Bridge National Park. The breaking waves were quite mesmerizing.
Lastly, we made the obligatory beach stop at Long Bay.
Allyn, on the other hand, made the wiser choice just to have fun. She and her friends went for a catamaran sail on this beautiful day. They said it was the most fun tour they could remember.
They sang and danced the day away.
And then they even were treated to barbecued lobster for lunch on board.
