Postcard from Crocus Bay Beach, Anguilla

It doesn’t matter what time of year it is – don’t you want to walk the soft sands of Crocus Bay Beach?

Anguilla - Crocus Bay beach

After a boat ride along the coastline of Anguilla in a glass-bottom boat to spot fish, turtles, starfish, conch, jellyfish and other sea creatures, we were dropped off at this beach, for lunch and some time in the sun.

As we sought cool drinks, sustenance and shade, I noticed these cement partitions, perhaps the foundation of a former pier, now idly letting the sea surround its posts.

But instead of an eyesore or something that would be considered dangerous or harmful, the cement is now considered just another part of the island, now used as a refuge for kids off-shore:

I was jealous of their perch – and wished I could swim out and join them in their conversation and to learn the secrets of how they actually climbed up there. Ahh the sweet life of summer spent at the beach….
