Lion King in Anguilla

The Play Last week a little girl came up to me and said ‘Nash, I am selling tickets to our Lion King play.’  Of course I said yes to attending but at the time I had no money in my pocket. She made sure I promised that I would be there. Shortly, after I came home, Shelly told me that we were going to see the Lion King play, with Xavi, as a family. There was no way I could get out  of it now. By the next day, I found out that our trio had grown and some...

May Fitness

It’s all about May fitness. There have been a bit of buzz and a number of activities this May surrounding fitness challenges.   Tough Mudder A group from Anguilla challenged themselves and took part in one of the Tough Mudder series in Atlanta last Sunday.

Hike to Windward point

My brother dropped by my house and says ‘we are going to Windward Point.’ Windward Point? Yes to Windward Point. So we hopped into his jeep, my brother at the wheel along with his girlfriend and my mother. It was a rainy afternoon and we started the trip towards Island Harbour which is on the eastern end of Anguilla.  The good thing about being in Anguilla is that 90 percent of the time it doesn’t rain long enough for it to be too much of an inconvenience. Between the laughing and the talking and the drops of water running...

First time Father

I can’t believe that I am now a father. If anyone knows me then you know I love children. When Shelly and I decided that we should have at least one of our own, I mean what could I say other than ‘let’s go right now!’ That was about a year ago and now we have this little person that is always staring and smiling back at us. I can’t say having a child and being a first-time father is hard because I find it fascinating to see Xavi grow.  From the moment Shelly told me it was happening...
