The Antigua region
Antigua with sister island Barbuda received independence from Britain in 1981. It was discovered by Christopher Columbus and was named after a church in Seville, Spain. The system of government follows the British Westminster System which is a parliamentary democracy.
The island sits in the Caribbean chain with an average annual sunny climate of 85 degrees. Fand has tourism as its main industry. Its music is calypso and soca.The official musical instrument is the steel pan made from oil drums. The main dish is Fungee and Shad which is finger licking.
This small island (108 square miles) has produced great Calypso singers such a Short Shirt, Swallow, and Obstinate along with cricketers such as Sir Vivian Richards, Andy Roberts, Richie Richardson, and Curtley Ambroose. Places of interest are Nelson's Dockyard, Shirley's Height, Betty's Hope, Fig Tree drive, museum, St. John's Cathedral, Green Castle Hill,and many more.
Cedar Valley Springs is a special designed gated community with a limited number of homes. A golf course is just over the fence. Two ponds sit in the community and are encircled by a jogging path as shown in the photo.
The beach (Fort James) shown is just 4km away. The community is quiet and is good for a casual stroll or a bicycle ride. The shopping Mall is just down the hill and further along is the capital city of St. John's.
On the other side of the island, is Nelson's Dockyard. A visit is a must. It's an old British naval site and museum reflecting the great British Admiral Horatio Nelson.
Above the Dockyard is Shirley's Height. There is entertainment on Sunday afternoons. A breathtaking view of the sea below creates the crave for a longer stay.
Betty's Hope, an old sugar estate should not be missed. The Museum and St. John's Cathedral in the City is also a must. Island Safaris and horse back riding are available for a fee
Antigua's carnival is from the last week in July and ends on the first Tuesday in August. It's that time of the year when cultural talents explode particularly calypso, soca, and steel band music.
