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
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.
