    This was the next place we visited, Shirley Heights. It was the officers quarters for the British navy when they were stationed in Antigua. Lord Nelson was stationed here 200 years ago. It became known as Nelson's Dockyard. This harbor was probably the most important in the Caribbean. It was easy to defend and was a natural harbor that never needed to be dreged. What a gorgeous view.
