Day 5: Barbuda!


Day 5 we made a day trip to Barbuda.  This was about 2 hours away by catamaran ferry.  Barbuda is part of the same sovereign nation as Antigua.

I am not up on my hurricane history, and my guidebook is apparently more than 3 years old; so I was unaware that Barbuda was devastated in 2017 by Hurricane Irma.  So it was a little bit bleak.

Nevertheless we visited a cave, boated right up to a large colony of frigate birds, had a delicious local lunch, and went to a beach, which is legally required.  Above, a view from just inside the cave.

I am feeling more and more grateful I made this trip while it was still possible to go anywhere.
