Volcano in Montserrat
11 January 2009 | Antigua
Andy's daughter, Barb, Dan her boyfriend and the Highly-Gifted Grandson are staying with us so not much time at the moment to write on here. We are having the best time, relaxing on a variety of beaches and experimenting with rum recipes.
We took them up to Shirley Heights where the steel band play on sunday night. Took some great photos which I'll put on here. This one is of Montserrat which is probably 30 miles away. They have just had a volcano and the island has had to be evacuated. All the boats here are covered in ash from it. Luckily no-one was hurt and I don't think any buildings have been damaged luckily. Makes you realise how little we have to worry about at home. No volcanoes or hurricaines to wipe our homes out!
Hope you're all keeping warm (for the UK) and cool ( for the Aussies).
