Hello Antigua!

Today we docked in St. Johns, Antigua. We booked the excursion “Amazing Antigua” in order to see the island and learn about it. We scored on both accounts. Our bus tour and tour guide Mikeela took us all over the island, showing us old forts and telling us about the island’s history.

Of course, my first thought when getting off the boat was, “IT’S HOT!” Because it is hot. But several times we found a spot in the shade and the breeze was quite lovely. The hot – not quite so lovely.
The view from our place - from where the Magic is docked.
The view from one of the old fort sites.
Another view of Nelson's Dockyard down yonder.
Even though the tour included a rum drink, we behaved, thus preventing a night's stay here ...
Once our tour was over, we headed back to the ship for our usual plans – eat and then pool/nap (you guess who did what).

Tomorrow we’ll be in St. Lucia – never been there either!
Today is a gift because: fun and exciting excursion on the island; tour guide Mikeela; seeing our KY table mates on another tour
