Our travels took us next from Antigua to Nevis – a 50 nm – or about an 8 hour sail in early March. Beautiful weather.
When Glenn and I were sailing in Antigua about 4 years ago, we were having a few problems with our charter boat, and things got a bit tense. I remember distinctly saying – I just want to go to the Four Seasons on Nevis and lay on the beach!! 😔 Needless to say, I didn’t get to go, and here we are on Mira today – on Nevis! And, I am so happy for that!
Abba, our well-versed and stoic guide for the day, toured us around his island for more than 5 hours. “Gingerland” is the area of Nevis just south of the Mountain. Many large, old plantations have been converted to small, luxurious hotels with magnificent grounds and views.
