Saba 2002

Pictures taken in Saba, West Indies. This was part of a Caribbean trip I took at the end of January 2002. See corresponding trip journal.

1: Approaching Saba. The airstrip is down by the water in the front right. Hell's Gate is above it in the center. And Windwardside is the cluster center-left.

8: A panorama taken from my seat as I was waiting for breakfast. Exposures weren't very consistent! I guess when I was taking the pictures I wasn't planning on stitching them. Be sure to scroll to the right. It's better than the left.

9: I found some wood sorrel growing in the rocks. It's the one with the heart shaped leaves. Very tasty.
