Early Morning KiteSurfing at Jabberwock Beach in Antigua

Lee Richards from Cadillac Michigan on the right and Stuart Saffer also from the US on the left, both talking a little shop. Lee came to spend his vacation in Antigua from Cadillac Michigan where he owns an automotive supply company. Stuart is enjoying the vacation from his job at Volante POS software company back in the US. Meeting these two was a pleasant reminder that the US automotive industry and the economy in general are still alive an kicking.

This morning I met a couple of kite surfers from Cadillac, Michigan while at Jabberwock Beach in Antigua doing my daily yoga, stretching and calisthenics. The two, Lee and Carolyn Richards from Cadillac, Michigan, told me that if I’d gotten there just slightly earlier I would have seen a number of locals (mainly older folk) who gathered there at daybreak to exercise every morning just as I did. I was fascinated to hear bout old Caribbean people exercising at daybreak just like Chinese people the world over do early morning tai chi exercise in public spaces.
