On the Road With Gerard Mc Keon
Photos: Blacktiemagazine/GMK, Kareem Gore

Had the opportunity to take a quick busmans holiday and with the able
assistance of  Kareem Gore from the Ministry of Information, Broadcasting, Telecommunications, Science & Technology enjoyed an afternoon between meetings exploring the beauty of the Island.

Anupam Govil, a fellow guest on the trip only got 5 minutes at the beach, before he had to leave to catch a plane, and as you can see by his smiley face, he was in no rush to leave.

Strangely, given the lush tropical plants and the warm trade breezes, I kept thinking the" Ring of Kerry".
It took awhile but eventually the penny dropped and eureka like I understood
what my mind was trying to tell me.

It is remarkably unique to experience such a wide range of climates, foliage and magnificent scenery in such a short drive.

The beaches are majestic, straight from central casting tropical splendor.
The jagged remains of ancient volcano's seem placed for maximum scenic effect, and the odd goat ambling along the roadside, creates a sense of local color.

Shirley Heights is one of the most beautiful places in the world. As fine a place to reveal in the beauty of creation as I have ever experienced. Some think god is a great architect, I think he's a marvelous landscaper. I could have just sat and
contemplated existence and lost myself in the beauty of it all, all day.

We drove back through the Rain Forest, only a stone throw from
a much drier beach area. again strange how the topography can change so rapidly. I pondered whether or not to venture on the canopy ride, and traverse from tree to tree at a hundred plus feet. I'm not great with heights but I'm game for adventure. Any way it was late and it was closed, so another
moment of doubt and choice, removed.

I did get to go to town later and visit some of the Mas Clubs,
 preparing for
The Antigua Carnival.

But that's a tale for another day.

Or in the modern vernacular
