Dear Anguilla News. . . .
|2000/06/11 - Click to enlarge pictures|
This was our first trip to the Caribbean and we were advised to stay on Anguilla at CoveCastles by our travel agent Molly Sumption at Caribbean Concepts. We decided to take the chance of going to a place we knew nothing about and booked our trip.
We then found your website before we left Seattle, Washington. It was wonderful to see where we were going for on our vacation before we left. It prepared us for what turned into the most relaxing and comfortable trip.
I just wanted to thank you for maintaining such a wonderful website. I have attached a few shots that express what we found to be the beauty and hospitality of your island. The one above shows the beach on Scrub Island and the one below shows our captain, Junior, on his glassbottom boat. You have our permission to use them on your site if you so desire.
We look forward to going back next year, if not earlier.

Folk Wisdom. The "cedar" trees that grow in Anguilla are currently in full bloom with white or pink flowers. It is very attractive. Folk wisdom says not to eat barracuda or Old Wife fish while the cedars are in bloom or you might get food poisoning. Makes a lot of sense since the trees bloomed after 3 weeks of passing rain storms and these same storms stir up the ocean bottom, causing the fish to ingest more of the bacteria that causes fish poisoning. That is the theory.

Guest Director from New York. This summer the Apple Theatre Company’s production of Children of Eden will be directed by volunteer Tony Rust from Brooklyn, New York. Tony has worked in theatre for over twenty years in many areas other than directing; he has worked professionally as an actor and a technician among other things. He is very enthusiastic about working with students in the company this summer, and hopes to produce a piece of art that everyone can enjoy. Also joining him on this venture are his wife Janet, a drama teacher in a New York public school, and their two-year-old son Glenn. Janet will be working in a workshop with teachers from Anguilla regarding the use of Drama as a teaching tool in the classroom. For more information on the summer program, email Eleanor Stacey at email@example.com. P.S. Eleanor is still looking for a villa or apartment for this volunteer couple to stay in.
