Here's a write up with lots of pictures from our May trip to Antigua and Barbuda aboard a Lagoon 50, and later a Bali 5.4.

Quick summary:
- Really enjoyed this as a new charter destination, but it probably doesn't make it into the regular rotation
- Had great weather and easy passages to Barbuda. Reminded me a lot of Anegada but you can anchor right off the beaches.
- Fishing was pretty mediocre, just really hard to keep lines clear right now with the sargassum
- Had a small electrical fire we were lucky to catch, requested a new boat they had to deliver from St. Martin. Spent 2 days ashore at the wonderful Carlisle Bay Resort over Mother's Day which kept me out of the dog house.
- Yes, Shirley Heights is a bit touristy, but it was one of the highlights of the trip.

I'd been wondering how Barbuda was following the hurricanes, so it's good to hear/see that it's still a beach paradise and a good stop on a charter. Thanks for filling us in!
