Locations: Little Bay, West Side of Island
Highlights: 2nd Maui Maui Catch, Rose Plums, Volcano Destruction
Description of Highlights:
•2nd Maui Maui Catch – This fish was even larger than the first one, it weighed in at 22lbs and we caught it while sailing from Jolly Harbour, Antigua to Little bay, Montserrat. There was fish everywhere but we had more than enough with this one and so we shared our catch with two neighboring boats.
•Rose Plums – We discovered this delightful fruit on our Island tour. It taste like a rose smells but has the texture of a pear/plum. Very yummy and something we hope we can find again once back home.
•Volcano Destruction - Montserrat was once a thriving tourist destination but was recently affected by several major eruptions from the Volcano. The town of Plymouth suffered the most devastation and has been closed since 1995. It was really incredible to see how much damage a volcano can cause. Our guide told us that most of the still abandoned homes have cars in the garages and furnishings in the house.
