#1: Looking back on Montserrat, very close to confluence

(visited by Maia Weinstock)

13-Jun-2002 -- It's possible I did go through the actual confluence, but forgetting the GPS receiver at home will forever keep me wondering - and will keep this an "attempt," no matter how close I got.

The confluence is located in between the West Indies islands of Antigua and Montserrat. Montserrat has been severely devastated by volcanic activity of its hills but they're trying slowly but surely to pick back up the tourism front. At least one ferry each day makes the roughly one hour trip back and forth from Antigua's capitol, St. John's, to a makeshift port that's been serving as one of Montserrat's only points of entry since the complete ruin of its captiol city, Plymouth (first closeup image), and its airport (at far left in second closeup image).

The ferry basically makes a direct bee-line through where the confluence *should* be, so the main image here is a rough approximation on my part of about half-way out to the confluence, looking back on Montserrat.
