Reporting by Jamel Lake,
My wife loves their food. One time we bought Pate de Provence, Greek pate, hot Italian sausage, 4 huge steaks, goat cheese, dry salami, aged asiago cheese, St. Andre triple cream cheese, gorgonzola cheese, and balsamic vinegar in a small recycled bottle so we didn't have to buy a gallon. Arista foods provided us with ice packs so we could get the food back to the other end of Anguilla without it spoiling.
Telephone: 1-264-497-6506, fax 1-264-497-6507. PO Box 797.
Directions: Arista Foods is located in the South Hill Plaza on the main west end road between Anguilla Trading and the turn off for Anguilla Great House. From the airport parking lot, take the only exit and turn left, then turn left again and drive past the airport, through the roundabout, straight down the island, through the Sandy Ground roundabout and into South Hill. Stay on the main road; when you reach the speed bumps ("sleeping policemen") at Anguilla Trading, watch for Arista on the left.

One of Anguilla's premier windsurfers, Richardson closed down his last watersports venture "Hook'd on Watersports" on Cove Bay to move to the United States in 1997. He recently returned to Anguilla and decided to start a new business on Shoal Bay.
Other activities offered by Second Wind Watersport include windsurfing, sailboating, kayaking, snorkeling and paddle boats at a cost of US $50.00 per session.
For more information, drop by Shoal Bay East any day between 9:00am and sunset. The beach hut is located to the east of Uncle Ernies, in front of Shoal Bay Resort.

Feedback on "No Mercy" Charter Boat:
Visitor W.D. Hale (
We had the good fortune of being the first day charter onboard NO MERCY.
While seas were running 10 - 15 ft. the boat had a comfortable and stable
Our fishing adventure took us out to DOG Island. Even with the rough seas we
managed to catch several large barracuda..always fun to catch. Captain Shaun
is very knowledgable of the local fishing HOT SPOTS and a day on NO Mercy will
surely result in a great fishing experience.
"No Mercy" also offers charter trips, water skiing, and tubing!

It grows wild in many parts of the island. In the old days, Anguillans used the sticky sap of the Pigeon Wood to seal envelopes. This was especially useful because the glue on envelopes gets moist here and sticks before you can even use it!
To conserve water in the dry season, the natural Frangiapani plant drops all of its long thin leaves.
By coincidence, a giant, voracious caterpillars with very distinctive yellow and black bodies appear on the scene at just the right time and eat all of the leaves just before they drop off. Then the Frangiapani trees go into a dormant phase and the caterpillers turn into hawk moths.
A visitor sent us a digital picture of the wild frangipani
this month and asked what it was:

Hello Bob, I just thought I would send you a note and thank you for the wonderful web site. I check it out at least twice a week just wishing we were back on the beaches. We spent most of Feb just beach hopping and loved every minute . We are coming back again all of Feb 2000. It is a long way off and I will be checking in regular for the latest.
Can you help me identify the picture I took [see pix to the right]. It came out quite well and some one asked me what kind of tree it was and I don't know. If you know I would appreciate it.
Thanks again, Butch
