Whelking at Mimi Bay

Is there anything more perfect than a Sunday Morning? This past Sunday, Akio and I woke at the crack of dawn as we prepared for the Sunday Funday adventure that awaited us. For several weeks I had yearned to go whelking, a pastime I thoroughly enjoyed in my childhood. Whelks are edible sea snails generally found  along the edges of the sea rocks. Readily Akio agreed to this outing, however our plans were temporarily suspended while we waited for the rough seas to subside. Finally, the day was here and I was super excited! Whelking Tip #1 – The...

My Anguilla Experience #DiscoverAnguilla Challenge

We are already one month into the new year! Can you believe it? Time is definitely moving quickly. Recently I was driving with my boyfriend through West End and we travelled down a road I had never driven on before or even noticed. Please note that this was not a new road. Although I have lived in Anguilla my entire life, there are many roads I have never explored, places I have never been and cultural sites I have never visited.  I’ve realised that we spend so much of our time working to build a great life or consumed...

To Windward Point! – My Anguilla Experience

Exploring Windward Point Area   Anyone who knows me knows that I hate exercising. Unlike Shelly and Nash, I do not find any kind of joy in running, jogging, gym or any traditional forms of exercise. The most “exercise” I usually get on a daily basis is watching TV marathons of all my favourite shows (I’m currently loving ‘Suits’ at the moment– Hilarious!) However, somehow, one of my friends was able to persuade me to go for an afternoon hike to Windward Point last Wednesday and I must say it was quite enjoyable. Our journey  to Windward Point Bay...
