Day 12 – Exploring Antigua
Posted: Sun, Jul 20, 2014
Location: English Harbour, Antigua
This morning we woke up with a nice cold boat and pancake smelling aroma. After cleaning all the dishes and organizing the boat, we took our sailing exam and went to the laundromat. It ended up being closed along with almost every store in Antigua on Sundays. Alex C., Alex H. and Billy headed off to look around town and the rest of us headed back to the boat to go snorkeling, while Jane relaxed on the boat. When we got back from snorkeling we quickly rinsed off with fresh water and went out to lunch and looked around the dockyard and town. At around 3 we were all back on the boat, playing cards, showering and getting dressed for the night. Everyone put their best clothes on for the night. At around 4:30 Brit drove us in the dinghy over to a dock where everyone except Brit, Alex C. and Jane, started a quick and easy hike. Halfway up the trail everyone started to get really hot and sweaty. At the top the view was incredible and looked over the dockyards below. The view was definitely worth it and at the top there was a nice restaurant with great music and delicious food. We all ate dinner and danced until around 9:30. We got a taxi back to Squeaky Brat, we got back exhausted and ready for bed. We had an awesome day exploring Antigua, meeting new people and dancing.
