Get ready for Anguilla Red Cross’ Second Annual 5K!…

 

Taking place April 11th 2015 together with Saint James School of Medicine, the Anguilla Red Cross Response Team will be hosting its second annual 5K marathon.

 

A fun event for a worthwhile cause, all funds raised go directly to transforming an ambulance box with chassis into a mobile, solar-powered mobile First Aid Center. A tremendous benefit for the community, this will allow the Red Cross to attend to emergencies and injuries in a quick, efficient manner.

Artisan’s Misto Salami

My Mom and I dropped into Artisan this week for a little savory bite of something special.

 

Owners Juergen & Indra did not disappoint. Juergen explained each selection, specially imported from Miami: Mortadella, Speck, Bresaola, Coppa, Salami and Spicy Salami.

With homemade “Artisan” bread, olives and a glass of Chianti, it was exquisite (especially the Bresaola, a cured beef) and well-priced, too!

Artisan is located in Island Harbour.

Adorable White-Cheeked Pintail Ducks in Anguilla’s Wetlands

Waterfowl continue to dominate the scene at many of Anguilla’s wetlands.  White-cheeked Pintail ducks like these are a resident breeding species found island-wide.  Often called Bahamian ducks, these birds are busy caring for their young at this time of year.
