ENGLISH HARBOR ANTIGUA – Maria spent the morning on a couple of dives from here so I had a chance to walk around and absorb some tourist color at Nelson’s dockyard. This was the home of the British fleet in the Caribbean in the 18th century. Nice Georgian architecture and some good local faces. Here’s Maria’s scuba instructor and a guy who has just arrived with three teammates from having rowed here across the Atlantic from the Canary Islands in a specially built boat in 59 days. Quite a feat. I’m also providing a sample of Georgian buildings.

Day 1,571 of one photo every day for the rest of my life. I didn’t managed to get it down to one images today. What I really mean is at least one photo every day.

ANTIGUA – We haven’t been to Antigua for years. Actually decades. This was one of the stops on our Caribbean tour on our honeymoon. We’ve come down here for a week to escape the unpleasant weather in New York and Connecticut. Here’s some foam in the surf in the very late afternoon. Don’t expect much from me here. Remember that I fall apart visually in the tropics.

Day 1,568 of my long-running on photo a day project.
