St. John’s Antigua

St. John’s is the capital and largest city of Antigua and Barbuda, a country located in the West Indies. Not much to see. Our walk into town should encompass a visit to the St. John’s Cathedral. If we are able to visit the Nelson’s Dockyard named after Horatio Nelson that would be good. I don’t know how far it is.  It seems they have a sea of sailing vessels from mini to mega yachts. There also is a cool windmill on Betty’s hope. Betty’s Hope was a sugarcane plantation in Antigua. It was established in 1650, shortly after the island had become an English colony, and flourished as a successful agricultural industrial enterprise during the centuries of slavery. It was the first large-scale sugar plantation to operate in Antigua and belonged to the Codrington family from 1674 until 1944. Christopher Codrington, later Captain General of the Leeward Islands, acquired the property in 1674 and named it Betty’s Hope, after his daughter.
