Good morning! We leave Antigua for Guadalupe today, as we start to head south for hurricane season. While in Antigua, EW and I took 4 of the 5 hikes available out of English Harbor. This is a beautiful island country.
We hiked from English Harbor to Falmouth Harbor along a shore trail. The point behind me is the entrance to English Harbor. One of those boats out there is ours.
When our friend Amy visited, she noticed a yellow bloom on the distant hillsides, and was interested in seeing one up close. She would love the hikes we took in English Harbor for many reasons. I took about 20 photos of the plant in her honor, so Amy – these are for you!
Here’s a close up of the flower. These are Agave plants or century plants. They look like a giant aloe near the ground and only bloom once – then they die.
Here’s a whole agave plant, nearing the end.
And of course, here is the Officiant Bag with a young Agave bloom.
We saw beautiful boats in English and Falmouth Harbors …
In case you are wondering, EW is having a good time.
I love the colors of Antigua.
Heck .. I just love Antigua. We’ll be back next year.
