Antigua… not just beaches

We all know really well that Antigua got so many beautiful white sand beaches! I never counted, but they say should be 365 – a beach per day and you got busy all year round… On one of the trips, after visiting one of beaches my attention was taken by blooming plants. I then got to my camera, and here are some of the flowers I found… Frangipani. Frangipani flowers are highly scented during nights and are used in bouquets used in wedding ceremonies.

Below is the one we know as Azalea, also called Desert Rose. …

In Soufriere we got some local food from “Skippers” and drove to the beach to enjoy a calming picnic. I really liked the cassava root… and the leftovers we saved for the fish. The water was so clear that I could see the bottom! Even before we jumped into the water I could already see the crabs, the corals and the fish swimming around. It was so beautiful! My dad took his underwater camera to take pictures, I took the cassava and started to feed the fish – you would never imagine that so many fish actually lived in this …
