Sitting here in my apartment in New York, it’s hard to believe that exactly 4 months ago I was in the beautiful waters of Anguilla celebrating K and P’s birthdays. These photos are proof that I was there but it really does feel a bit like a dream. For one, we were so well taken care of and pampered by the staff at Ani Villas (thank you again to Felix and his team, who sent us home with gifts ranging from candles to canvas bags) that I know it’s unlikely I’ll ever have another experience quite like it. And I suppose it’s also because I had a few more adventures over the summer that make it feel as if our stay in Anguilla was a lifetime ago. I did pack a lot into the last few months. Funny how malleable our concept of time can be…
Well, let me go back to Anguilla now for the last part of that trip before moving onto my summer. Our group of normally quiet and peaceful folks put in one crazy fun night before we settled down to our easygoing Caribbean pace again. That meant more delicious meals from chef Sweets (coconut shrimp! West Caribbean curry and homemade roti!), morning yoga lessons, lazily floating around and swimming, more cocktails, and naps.
I didn’t take many photos so here are some of A and V’s as a final roundup, including some from A’s drone and other cool camera equipment. Sadly the drone and the underwater equipment had a mishap on the very last day on the beach and they’re no longer with us, but they gave us these amazing images…
Victor’s photos below, my room was on the second floor with the two chairs outside.
Beach picnic day.
That wraps up K & P’s birthday celebration trip to Anguilla. Tomorrow, it’s Costa del Sol España and the start of my summer of fun in Europe.
One last photo from Anguilla before I go… This one is mine.
