This morning we took the local bus to McDonalds in Simpson Bay to start our trip to Anguilla. Of course, we had a Macdonald’s breakfast too to set as up for the morning. From there, we took a 12 seater fast speed boat across the water to Anguilla that took about 20 Minutes. This was a very exhilarating ride. Thankfully George was not adversely affected by the boat ride as he has been a few times in the past. On arrival in Anguilla, we went through their immigration / customs and got another stamp on our passports. This island is just 16 miles long and 3 miles across at its widest point. It is a very expensive place to live. Like most Caribbean islands, the main industry is tourism and construction. From the dock, we took ... read more

Hier, je suis allé à la maison de mon ami. À ma grande surprise, j'ai trouvé sa garde-robe plein de belles choses, des sacs, des vêtements, et beaucoup de chaussures sous la garde-robe. Parce que, elle avait l'habitude d'être économe et n'aiment pas à acheter de belles choses. Parce que tu sais, si tout le monde veut être beau, les belles choses sont toujours les plus chères. Donc, je lui demande pourquoi elle a tant d'argent pour acheter ce genre de choses, elle m'a dit que le secret qu'elle a acheté en ligne. J'avais l'habitude de Untrust les choses en ligne. Alors qu'elle achète, et heureusement, c'est bon et pas cher, oui, pourquoi ne pas essayer? Alors que, je peux économiser beaucoup d'argent pour acheter beaucoup d'autres choses. En tant que dit le proverbe, tuer deux ... read more


April 26, 2011 – Sandy Beach Harbor, Anguilla We arrived in Aguilla the Saturday before Easter Sunday, April 23, 2011. After anchoring in Sandy beach harbor, 4-8 took the rest of the watch again which makes a long day for us. This means our day started at 3:30am with our first watch. Then after 8am we went to all hands to prepare for our arrival. I think we must have been anchored/cleared thru customs by 1 or 2. The rest of the watches jumped for shore while the 4-8 stayed to do topsides (riding in a little skiff around the boat using “ospho”-osphoric acid- to remove rust stains and fresh water rinsing afterward then doing any touch up paint jobs to the sides of the ship and repainting the water line). Luckily they did the big ... read more


Anguilla's history has been quite a story to tell. In 1967, Britain granted Saint Kitts and Nevis full internal autonomy, and Anguilla was also incorporated into this, against the wishes of many Anguillians. This led a rebellion with a boat full of Anguillans heading to St Kitts with an American mercinary. There was guns fired with noone injured and since then Anguillan achieved what they were fighting for and were allowed to secede from St Kitts and Nevis and is now a British Overseas territory. It is said that they took particular umbridge to the Governor of St Kitts publicly stating that the Anguillans will do as they are told and that St Kitts is not a nation to be messed with. It's quite a flat island and is quite pricey with large exclusive resorts. It ... read more

Oh my, my, my! What a wonderful summer this is! So far, the weather has been just as gorgeous in Kentucky as it has been in the Caribbean! We have many beautiful lakes and mountains to explore, but I still have to constantly have my fix of palm trees and magnificent beaches! Not to mention-my sinus and allergy issues completely disappear in the Caribbean! It's so wonderful to be able to breathe! : ) We just returned from Anguilla, and, as usual, I have tons of awesome information to share with you! There is no way I will be able to squeeze everything into one issue, so you will get at least two issues out of this island! Anguilla, which rhymes with "vanilla', and means "eel" because of the eel shape of the island, used to ... read more
