Back in Antigua

May 2, 2008

After a month in St. Martin we waved goodbye to new friends Margie, Lindsey Nikki and others as we went through the bridge at the St. Martin Yacht Club. Kristen must have been blinded by tears in her eyes, because she tried to put the main up without untying the sailties... why won't the main go up?!?

We're back in Antigua after island hopping from St. Martin to St. Barth's, St. Kitts, Nevis and then to Antigua. Today we caught the last of the races at Antigua Race Week. Yesterday on our way over we caught four (4!!) tuna! Yummy. Last nights dinenr was sashimi of tuna and tuna tartar. yummy!

Mr. Tuna Catcher!

Kit Kat gets her share of the booty.

Whisper at anchor in Dieppe Bay, St. Kitts. Absolutely gorgeous! In the background you can see Statia (St. Eustatius).

Sugar cane field in St. Kitts.

Palm trees in St. Kitts.

Kristen walks along the railroad tracks that circle St. Kitts. It is the oldest surviving railroad track in the Caribbean and was used to transport the harvested sugar cane. Now it is used to shuttle tourists around.
