Anguilla is delightful; everything you could want for an idyllic tropical island. Jewel coloured water, loads of wildlife and friendly people. In fact as our name is Brookes, we have been welcomed especially warmly everywhere we go, as this is an old Anguillan name! So customs, immigration and even the restaurant on the seafront where we ate our dinner treated us like old Anguillans returning home!

Too good to be true?  Well there is a hitch. Only two bays on the whole island permit an overnight stay. And if we wish to venture out of this one, Road Bay, then the cruising permit is a lavish 950 East Caribbean Dollars a week. As we are well aware that the next few weeks in the British Virgin Islands could be quite expensive, this is one luxury that we are going to have to decline! Hard decisions, even in paradise!!!
