Setting Off For Barbuda At Sunrise

This was the scene yesterday at sunrise in St. John’s Harbour, the dramatic skies overhead presaging what would turn out to be one of the most perplexing, eye-opening, and, ultimately, inspiring days of adventuring I’ve ever experienced anywhere. Our destination: Barbuda, a dream destination for me for as long as I can remember. Those dreams never involved Hurricane Irma, of course. The Cat-5 storm dealt Barbuda a severe blow last September. What would we find there? Had all of the residents that had evacuated in Irma’s wake returned? What about Barbuda’s stunning beaches and other natural wonders? Looking out at the St. John’s skyline as the sun climbed steadily into the sky we could really have no idea what to expect. I can scarcely ever remember being so anxiously excited to go anywhere…

Stay tuned for a special week of stories dedicated exclusively to Antigua and Barbuda coming soon…

Up Next: Antigua and (Hopefully) Barbuda
