This is graffiti from back in the day 1700's to be exact. This might seem a bit nerdy but I think it's quite amazing that it's still so clear to see. This is a water Catchment the seamen would come here to collect water and take back to the ships ....

I had a trip to Antigua and stayed in English Harbour which is the home of Nelson's Dockyard. At the moment English Harbour is gearing up for the season that's when the yachties arrive and take over the place. The season starts around December so it was nice and quite when we arrived.
Everyone loves Sandra she serves very cold beers at Skullduggery. She makes great coffee and wonderful fresh Lemonade and really friendly as well!
This is Chanee she works at the Dockside Liquor store. She looked so good I had to take a picture, this picture was her favorite
This pretty Church is in fact on the way out of English Harbour.
Another Bar to visit
The Rasta Shack ... Love it!
We had a lovely evening at Hamilton's
Cool lounging area at the Bar
Fantastic menu using lots of local produce. The highlight for us was the bread and butter pudding!
Emma was gearing up for the season at Hamilton's which is a wonderful Bar restaurant on the
Dock Yard. I have a feeling Hamilton's gets real busy. Fun place, great food, fab music ....
On most of my travels around the world usually always find a good old English telephone box
|Reminds me of London ...|
There where times I felt like I was in the Cotswolds ...
There were some grand houses ....
The signage below gives you a little history of the place

We recently went into Cafe Ole' for a fresh juice and found Charlie having some quite time which is rare. Charlie and her husband Ben run and own Cafe Ole'. Charlie is usually behind the counter with the Cafe Ole' crew serving juices and fresh coffee. Cafe Ole' is a great meeting place at the IGY marina where you always bump into someone you know. Charlie has also been my beach work-out partner and I can tell you she is hard to keep up with because she give it all she's got ....

There are lots of artists, singers & poets on the island and I look forward to introducing some of them to you. There is an artists house on the Vigie roundabout on the way to Castries which I have always been intrigued about but somehow I have never been able to stop but after taking this picture I figured I will have to so I can let you know who lives in a house like this..... interesting?

Bonny and Marlie are at the vets as I write this post getting spayed. But before we took them down to Dr Scotland they had a great time at the beach. And for the first time they both jumped in the sea without persuasion. There's so many stray dogs on the island in poor health so it's irresponsible if you don't take them down to the doctors for the snip, sad but true.

Oh I forgot to mention we stopped off at Elena's for ice cream and coffee which is also on the marina. Best in town ...

The coconuts are sold roadside all over the island sold by men with big cutlasses. Coconuts are sold at $2 a nut much much cheaper than you would pay in a health shop in the UK. This could be the only livelihood these guys have, so next time your in the caribbean buy a coconut!

There are some great places to have lunch in Rodney Bay. One of my favourite places is the Starfish on the marina ....
