Yup, still living in Antigua.  When will you be here?

Bequia -- yes, that's a keeper. Still living in Antigua? I'm going there for a few days next month.

Sorry, but having lived in the Caribbean, on one island or another for the past 30 years, I don't think that anything can compare to Bequia !!

Tripadvisor Readers' Choice lists St. John, USVI, as the 2nd best island on earth. There are no other islands from the "Caribbean region" -- that is, including the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, and Bermuda -- in the top 10. You agree?

Puerto Ricans love dominoes

Thanks, Hal and Debbra. No need to search around, Hal; I'll just head off for that cheesburger. Nice tip re the cherries; think I'll take a detour into La Cave.

Ed: Try to make it to La Cave (wine cellar) for a tasting and (if they still have them) bring home a jar of the cherries, marinated in a liqueur. Amazing over vanilla ice cream! They used to have cool t-shirts, too... And, of course, everyone has to have a "Cheeseburger in Paradise" where Jimmy Buffett supposedly was inspired to write the song...

Have a safe trip, Ed. A little worried for everyone I know who are in or traveling through the region this week what with Hurricane Isaac passing through also.  You didn't mention, if it's work or leisure - but if it's writing related, I can search around my own list of contacts and notes and email you some suggestions.

I'm heading to St. Barths today (yes, very last-minute). Any thoughts on things I must see, do, or avoid?
