    I'm Martin.

    Default Antigua & Barbuda

    A couple of snaps from my recent hols.

    First the obligatory 'view from the hotel balcony':



    Eric Clapton's House (you have to zoom in to the end of that peninsula to see it. I don't think he was home, musn't have realised I was coming...




    Can't remember if this was a runined fort or a ruined platation. Ruined, anyway:




    Hotel beach:



    And again



    Got the 'ferry' to Barbuda which is a small coral island about 40 miles north of Antigua. Like spending 2 hours on a mechanical bull, i would not recommend this trip if you get seasick:



    Frigate bird sanctuary on Barbuda. They breed here and on the Galapagos islands, apparantly:



    Deserted beach on Barbuda. They used to wrek ships here in the good old days:





    'having it large' on the beach on Barbuda:

    You didn't even get them out yourself Martin by the look of it, don't you like the sun?

    Looks like a nice place to visit, I take it you enjoyed the break.

    I love Hendrix for so many reasons. He was so much more than just a blues guitarist - he played damn well any kind of guitar he wanted. In fact I'm not sure if he even played the guitar - he played music. - Stevie Ray Vaughan

    Brilliant Martin! Make sure you do some snorkeling. Oh, and by the way, don't start any cable discussions with the locals.

    Nice pics, Martin! Not too dissimilar to Stoke, though……… On a Tuesday…… On acid…….. If you’re blind……………….

    I see you decided against the gingham shorts

    yeah - packed 'em but never wore 'em

    Seriously though the sun is merciless out there especially in the middle of the day. I burn in minutes if I'm exposed, even with loads of factor 30 P20 slapped on. Hence the cap and the tracky bottoms
