Venturing out into the sun and scrub beyond the resort to see what was common. From the top: White-Crowned Pigeon; Ruddy Turnstone (same bird as ours); Gray Kingbird (a large flycatcher); Mongoose (an introduced species); Silver Spider (argiope argentata); Bananaquit; Magnificent Frigate Bird (immature); our friendly cabin lizard and Antillean Crested Hummingbird.

7.30 in the morning at Gatwick saw Ann and I, plus Peter and Holly, having breakfast after checking in our baggage and negotiating security. Less than twelve hours later were in Antigua, W.I. and finding our cabin, the beach and the cocktail bar. Welcome to Paradise, as the passport officer said to me.
