The Islander: Home Sweet Home

The Islander: Home Sweet Home

Happy to be Home. After Basically a year away from all the things I grew up around and which have been apart of me for so long, It's nice to be back and to reconnect with things that have been so distant. Basically this post is some nice words about home accompanied by some beach photos my brother took of me. 

Sundays : Windward Bay

IMG_4366

 As usual, Sundays are filled with salt and adventure for me. This Sunday was no exception. True to the spirit of summer, my friend and I went to the beach to soak up the Sun and get a few shades darker. 

Our feet took us to Windward Bay located in English Harbour in Antigua (the wonderful island i live on). The beach isn't really made for swimming, there are a few spots you can wade in, but its a nice place to go when you want to relax and clear your head. 

We decided this time that we wouldn't be content staying on the beach, and took the initiative to climb the hill and get a higher view of the landscape. It took a while, as the hill is fenced separating beach from private property. We climb the rocky hillside, and tried but failed to climb over the wire fence. Then as if God himself put it there, we found a gap in the bottom of the fence on the hillside with ample space for us to pass through. 

We climbed through and up the hill and like we guessed, the view was spectacular. The hillside was a garden of cacti and riddled with footpaths that led to intriguing dig ins and boroughs that we pledged to go back and explore.     The view of the coast line from the hill was amazing and made for an excellent afternoon.  The water was clear, the waves were friendly and the sun was happy in the sky which made the atmosphere even better for the Sunday of adventure.

Sundays...

Sunday is my favorite day of the weekend.  I get to bum and sleep in a bit later,  and on a good day like today, i get to call up my friends and go to the beach.  Quite frankly,  i think more locals  need to get up,  go outside, and enjoy what's free of charge right infront of them. 

Today my friend Jhodonna and I decided to visit Galleon Beach.  It's one of my favorite places as it has breathtaking scenery and awesome chill spots.  Plus not alot of persons know where it is so it's perfectly quiet and excellent for relaxation. 

  At the beach, there is also a pretty neat restaurant called Roxy's. We ordered Coconut Crushes and barbecue chicken wings and fries.  We had an Awesome time.

  We had invited a few more persons (2) but they weren't able to make it.  They sure missed out on a great day at the rock pools.
