As a writer and photographer I travel between my life in Toronto, my life in Antigua, and anywhere else my wanderings may take me ... writing my books and enjoying local arts and adventures along the way.

Ted the Photographer

Eric snapped a picture of Ted while Ted and I were chatting.

While in Nelson’s Dockyard I saw a sign advertising the services of a photographer. Hoping to meet a kindred soul I wandered into Ted Martin’s store where he sells clothing, books and assorted other items often required by the yachting enthusiasts who appear to be his primary customers.

Chris on the Grill

These fish are known locally as shellfish. When roasted on the grill they are something special.

I asked one of the cooks what makes his barbecue so good. He laughed, and said “I love what I do. You can taste that in the food”

Sweet T’s

The ice cream cone on the sign promises refreshingly cold and sweet treats which they without question deliver.

Not far from Nelson’s Dockyard, we found Sweet T’s, a restaurant that a number of locals had enthusiastically referred us to.

More Artist Interviews Interspersed by Butterflies

History lessons about Nelson’s Dockyard can wait … there is wish to me made and a butterfly to carry the wish away.

The historical significance of Nelson’s dockyard was beyond my capacity to render in any way that was meaningful to my five and seven year olds, who were intent on chasing butterflies and finding other reasons to run until breathless.

Ya-So So Bakery

This bakery was a fortunate find for us.

I’m not much of a person for sweets these days, but I do love bakeries, and I local Antiguan bakeries even more. I love the sweet heavy bread of the raisin buns, and I love the thick pastry of the coconut tarts.

Dennis Bar & Restaurant
