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.

Snorkeling in Antigua

For me snorkeling is one of the best things about a beach vacation in the Caribbean. The warm salt water is so buoyant that if you just relax and lay back you’ll float with no effort. With the bright water and gentle waves it could not easily be more enjoyable and relaxing. It’s like lying on top of a comforable see through bed or couch and very lazily watching all of the colourful little fish swim by in a great big HD screen below. This year I had the good fortune of being able to introduce my kids to snorkeling. So far they’re LOVING  it. But being right in the middle of the 2010 Antigua Carnival this week has lots of other good things about it as well. The kids loved the opening day parade. On a totally different track they also loved the opening of the brand new Epicurian grocery store. This shiny new store rivals top-end luxury supermarkets anywhere in the world. Going there was a social event where we must have seen have the entire island … no exaggeration given the large size of the store compared to the smallness of the island. The kids eye’s were completely bugged out with the huge array of goodies all around them and even though we only bought a few treats, something about the experience made us feel entertained by the time we left. After the visit my daughter Anisa counted the visit among the really cool things we got to do on that day, and concluded “this is the best day ever” in Antigua.
