Memories Of The West Indies

Antigua is one of the Leeward Islands, part of the Lesser Antilles chain in the West Indies - specifically, where the Caribbean Sea meets the western Atlantic Ocean. In October, 1999, Hurricane Jose visited Antigua, and from Hawksbill Bay, its approach was clearly visible as blackening sky over Montserrat. 500 homes were destroyed and power was out for 90% of the island. These boats were photographed on the northwestern coast in the hurricane's aftermath. They were more recently painted in acrylics by my daughter, good company both in and out of hurricanes.
