Falmouth Harbour, Antigua
22 March 2010
We left Jolly Harbour and made our way down the west coast of Antigua. On the southern end of the island we passed between the island and some very large reef structures to our south that actually stick up out of the water. The water here was an amazing color of blue and very clear. We motored into the large anchorage of Falmlouth Harbour. We spent several days checking out the sights on shore and eating at some of the restaurants. We did have a very enjoyable dinner on Pigeon Beach with several other boats in the anchorage: Lady, Elyssium, Estrella Del Mar and Fairhaven. One of the couples was from New Port Richey, Florida. Wow! To come all this way to meet someone from 30 minutes from Wesley Chapel. We also really enjoyed the Mad Mongoose. The prices were reasonable and everyone enjoyed their meal from a vegetable plate to fish. We were also able to use the internet. We spent one afternoon walking around Lord Nelson's Dockyard. This location on English Harbour was very picturesque and restoring of the old buildings seems to be an ongoing project. One of the old buildings housed some history of the area and military battles. We plan to move on to Montserrat in the next few days. We were looking over the islands we have left to cover between now and hurricane season and decided we need to keep moving.
