The day began cloudy with some rain showers, so we made a decision to spend the morning stocking up on snacks. The hunt for three particular items required us to three different grocery stores, which might cause you to believe that the grocery stores in Anguilla are not extremely well-stocked. But stocked they are, with a variety of interesting things.

I know what you’re thinking: Just how popular are soy chunks to warrant their own aisle? Why possess I never tried a tropical soy chunk smoothie, or the isle grilled soy chunks? I must be taking in at all the wrong places.

One of the right eateries is at Lucy’s, where, despite the insufficient soy chunks on the menu, the meals is quite delicious.

At Lucy’s we shared a crab fritter appetizer, accompanied by two orders from the snapper through the dinner menu, which really is a salty, garlicky, fried fillet so excellent that apparently I couldn’t even pause to have a photo before digging in.

Right because the appetizer came, Ronnie Bryan showed up – we’d called earlier to tell him which the trunk on our local rental car wasn’t shutting properly. (You understand it’s a small island when somebody can track you down at lunch time in the space around two hours.) While Angel chatted with Ronnie within the parking great deal, I of course ate the complete crab fritter appetizer. Afterwards, when Lucy brought out our entrees and noticed that Angel was still out talking to Ronnie, she quickly took his dish back into your kitchen so you don’t eat it all!” As if I would do this twice.

Lucy continues to be working on a fresh special drink, that is approximately 1 oz. of lime juice, 1 oz. of mango puree, 1 oz. of amaretto, and 48 oz. of rum. Either that or our eyes are this squinty all the time.

After fainting napping for the whole afternoon, we were still as well exhausted through the Lucy’s Foodapalooza to accomplish much for dinner, therefore we drove to Part best keto granola bar for a few pizza. You may already know, the laws and regulations of physics dictate that no matter how stuffed you are, you can often eat a slice of pizza.

The very next day was bright and sunny, which could only mean one thing: Rendezvous Bay.

Later that night was Blanchard’s for supper, which is where the high and famous hang out when they visit Anguilla, and the poor and infamous get to wait 20 mins for the table despite having a reservation. Not really which i am bitter or anything.

Blanchard’s is known for its “Cracked Coconut” dessert, which really is a chocolate shell dusted with toasted coconut and filled up with coconut ice cream. It was very tasty, however, not even a giant ball of coconut-shaped delicious chocolate can make up for the good-but-not-great meals and $200 tabs. Boo.

The next day we drove over the island to Shoal Bay East, with a quick stop in Island Harbour.

Remember once you were a kid and you thought a watermelon would grow in your stomach if you swallowed a watermelon seed? Caribbean kids must be terrified of coconuts.

Shoal Bay is gorgeous, but do not be fooled.

To begin with, there are tiny, curious tropical fish here, that will swim around your calves whenever you enter the water. I personally discover this sweet and charming, and could view them dart around my feet all day long. But Angel, who is a robust magnet for sand fleas, gnats, mosquitos, rabid canines, and virtually every various other loathsome creature around, does not recognize. Those legless bastards want to obtain me,” he explained, exiting the water. I laughed and asked why a fish how big is an anchovy might want to obtain him. Because I am sensitive and tasty,” he clarified. Of course.

The second cause to be on your guard at Shoal Bay is that a large stingray lives here. That alone is not therefore terrifying, until you understand that he’s cleverly disguised to look exactly like an integral part of the reef. God help us all.

love everything you wrote as well as the pictures are a feast for the eyes! I especially trust your summation of Blanchard’s. We have felt it’s been a “rip-off” for a long time.
