Beach Day

We've had a lot of rain lately but yesterday was sunny and warm so I hit the beach with my friend, Annee.

Coming around the western , Caribbean Sea side of the Island, we breathed deeper:



We swam, walked and lounged at Turner's Beach with its incredible turquoise water:



We plunked our lounge chairs in the dual shade of palm tree and wood umbrellas:



A house next to the beach with amazing views of  it all:



Sugar used to be king here before it could be made cheaper in another country. They still make rum from the sugar cane, though. We saw this restored sugar mill on our way home:



This is my last week at Crossroads so I'll grab all the Island opportunities I can.

    1. When I first round the corner on that side of the Island it never fails to take my breath away.

    1. I think of it as an embarrassment of riches!

  5. The photos take me back to when my dh and I lived on Nevis-St. Kitts years ago, and the restored sugar mills and white beaches there.

    1. Antigua is not far from them and had a huge sugar/ rum business at one point. Now, tourism and therefore the beaches are tops.
