So long Antigua. We’ll miss you.
Having now spent just over a month in Antigua, this island has grown to be one of our favorites. Perhaps it’s the abundance of picturesque beaches that has caught our fancy, or the great hiking that can be found all over the island. The friendly people that we’ve had the pleasure of interacting with sure hasn’t hurt our opinion of the place. As much as we’ve enjoyed our stay here though, the time has come for us to bid adieu to Antigua, and we’re set to make our way south towards Guadeloupe tomorrow morning.
We think it’s only fitting that we spent one of our final nights here watching the sun set from Shirley Heights, a prime attraction on Sunday evenings in Antigua. Unlike the countless pale-skinned tourists that also attended the festivities, Rebecca and I chose to hike to the top instead of taking a cab. To be honest, we enjoyed the hike as much, or perhaps even more, than the get-together at the top. If it weren’t for visiting with our friends on Earthling when we got there, and being introduced to some other cool people, it would have been a bit anticlimactic. As it stands though, we’re very glad we made the trip up there. It was a fitting send off from such a beautiful place. We’ll miss you Antigua!
