Antigua – an iconic yachting destination

Antigua’s most famous attractions include more beautiful protected anchorages than most other islands – English harbour and Falmouth harbour are just lovely and Nelsons dockyard has been beautifully restored. Two very old friends from N. Ireland joined us for a week. The island is certainly more sophisticated than many we have visited and we did our best to make the most of this and had a great week. We enjoyed snorkelling and pelican watching on the remote north east of the islands off Great Bird Island. Sampled the local cuisine in particular the excellent smoothies. Studied the super yachts and their accessories. Tim and Julian went diving. All in all a lovely week. Tim and Sally return to a cold Northern Ireland with a bit more colour in their cheeks.

  1. I think the last time I saw Sally was at Saintfield Show, her daughter was showing a Connemara, I’m sure you all had a great time together. I saw baby Pelicans in France, in the Camargue, they really are big babies. Enjoyed your photos, the brain coral is especially intriguing stuff, didn’t realise it was so large.

  2. We had an amazing week! I am already missing being lulled to sleep by the gentle rocking of the waves. Thank you Patricia and Julian. Keep living the dream xx
