Day 152- Nonesuch Bay, Antigua

We're back to our circumnavigation of Antigua.  Quite a daunting task considering the island is about only 20 miles in diameter.  Nonesuch Bay is interesting in that we are looking out at the windward side of the Atlantic Ocean but protected by a reef.  Amazing how protective a reef can be wavewise.  Pablo is happy that the wind generator is humming away charging all electronics.  We treated ourselves to lunch and a swim at Harmony Hall, an historic sugar mill turned into a restaurant.  It sits atop a hill overlooking Nonesuch Bay, with a gorgeous view. 

The Christmas spirit has been in full swing here since we first arrived in Antigua.  There is non stop Christmas music on every radio station, reggae versions of ones we're familiar with and one about a sweaty Santa.  It is hard to even consider Christmas when it is 90 degrees and we're spending more time in swim suits than not.

The girls made friends with local kids yesterday.  There was a group of  Antiguans who work together enjoying Hero's Day (similar to our Veterans Day) holiday with a day at the beach.
