Antigua 112 Finally we got into Antigua, this spring when we were suppose to dock here the wind was too high for us to dock.  This time we got in and now it was easy to see why we couldn’t last spring,  the entrance is extremely narrow and with a cross wind it would be nearly impossible to safely navigate the ship in.  We finally made it and were extremely impressed with the beauty of the island.  We took an island tour that eventually got us the Nelson Dockyard, the oldest dockyard in the world still working.  The harbor was beautiful, the old buildings intriguing, and the rum punch exceptional.  We even talked about using our timeshare here if the air flight was not too high.  Now two days at sea, and both sadly and happy to be home.  Sadly because we love cruising and happy because we will see our friends.
