I just finished reading "A Trip to the Beach. Living on Island Time in the Caribbean" by Melinda and Robert Blanchard (c. 2000). How can you pass up a title like that? A memoir about a middle-aged Vermont couple that falls in love with Anguilla and opens a 4-star restaurant there. I highly recommend it. (Liz liked it too.)

We were in Anguilla in January and had hoped to have lunch at Blanchards (I read the book a couple of years ago) so off we go to the beach only to find Blanchards is only open for dinner! They had a very informal family restaurant open for lunch but it was give your order at one window, pay at the next window and then wait to be called up when your food was ready. Not quite what we were looking for so we had lunch at the French restaurant next door. Would loved to have been able to go back to Blanchards in the evening for dinner but alas it was not to be!
