Lloyds Guest House

Click to visit Lloyds.ai Looking for a cultural experience in Anguilla with old-fashioned hospitality? Lloyds Guest House has updated their web page at lloyds.ai

Frequent visitor Rita Dispensa (tmf@mcione.com) explains why she keeps coming back to Lloyds Guest House, several times a year:

...I have been coming to Lloyds for 6 years. I first heard about the place because as a woman traveling alone I needed a 'safe' place to stay. One of the best things about Lloyds is that it's like being in an Agatha Christie novel - you never know who you will meet at the dinner table.

PC Hardware Training Program

[Click to read about the course] The Anguilla Computer Club attraced 12 students to its first computer hardware training program. Ever wonder about that mysterious "CMOS" you are always setting in your computer? The students now know that CMOS stands for "Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconducter", and more importantly, how you set it and what to do when the CMOS battery is dead!

The course was taught on a volunteer basis by Griffin Webster, an Electrical Engineer and Project Manager at Beachshack. The students each paid $150 US, which will help the club buy new computers and received a toolkit, reference book, and derelict computer of their choice to take home and work on!

The Anguilla Computer Club had a computer hardware training class, covering upgrades and troubleshooting. The 12 attendees learned a lot. See the web page for the course with everyone's pictures, and the club's newly refurbished home page as well.

I just read your recent newsletter, and I cried... right there was a picture as big as day of 'my beach'. Rendezvous Bay, right there, Pirate's Pier. My husband and I visited Anguilla in June of last year for the first time, and definately not the last (we are planning to return for our 10th anniversary in 3 years - a long time I know -- BooHoo) and we stayed at the Seahorse. I just can't tell you what your pictures did for me... I feel so overwhelmed by my urge to return to "Heaven on Earth". If you ever need pictures of that area again or any others, I have tons. Thank your for bringing me to a place that holds such a large part of my heart each month.

Thanks for the updates over the last year or so. You do a very good job and the pictures are great. My wife and I are returning to Beautiful Anguilla in Feb. In fact this month you show the beach where we stayed last time at Seahorse. This time we are staying next door at Cedars Villa. We are both just counting the days. Thanks again for the wonderful job you do.

Fishing Trip With Junior

Fishing news story

Here is an email from a visitor who went fishing with Junior:


From: Tom Ligis (tom_ligis@nih.gov)
To:   fishing@news.ai
Subject: Fishing from Scrub Island with Junior Fleming
Date: Tue, 27 Oct 1998 07:42:13 -0500
Thursday, October 22, 1998, we booked Junior Fleming and his boat for a private day of fishing and snorkeling. He first took us to Little Bay, which was extremely scenic. We fished a short time, but only caught one small reef fish. Junior next took us to Scrub Island for what he mentioned would be shore fishing. We weren't quite sure of fishing from shore when we had paid for a boat for the day, but it turned out to be a great experience.

Upon approaching the island, pelicans were diving on tremendous amounts of baitfish all along the shoreline. Once we went ashore, We were astounded by the size of the fish in the surf. There were HUGE tarpon just rolling throughout the gentle waves tearing through the baitfish. I hooked one of the smaller tarpon, about 36" long, and it gave me a great fight on light spinning tackle. I was almost spoiled twice by the fish on the light line, and had to run along the beach to keep up with the fish. It performed several spectacular jumps right along the beach before it finally broke off after about 15 minutes.

We had several other hookups, but lost all fish because of their size. The only other fish that was landed was by my wife, as a bonita grabbed her offering and proceeded to take her up and down the beach until she finally got it in. We gave the fish to Junior who was planning on giving it to Smitty, of the World famous Smitty's.

It was a memorable day for us on Anguilla.

Just Got Back

[Click to enlarge] The email brings reports on Anguilla every day, even someone's visit to Blue Waters on Shoal Bay Beach West, not East.

For example, here is a recent Internet posting by Dave Sanders (davesanders@fuse.net)

Subject: Just got back
Date: Wed, 28 Oct 1998 19:41:01 -0500
We just returned from a relaxing week in Anguilla. We stayed at Blue Waters and were 'very' satisfied. Being off-season, every time we went out to eat, we were the only people in the restaurant. It was great! Oliver's Restaurant opened right before we left. To me, it had the best view of anywhere we ate.

My favorite spot was Johnno's. It is everyone's idea of a Caribbean beachside bar. The food is excellent and as reasonably priced as anywhere on the island. Our first Saturday night there we listened to the Mussington Brothers. They were outstanding. Our last Saturday night there, we had an excellent dinner. (Johnno even pointed out the fisherman who had caught our meal that morning.)

Being off-season, it was hard to find a decent breakfast. We stumbled upon the Pepper Pot in the Valley which had as good a breakfast as I've had anywhere. The best dinner we had was shrimp at the Old Caribe Restaurant at the Anguilla Great House (try the coconut meatballs, mmm good). ...

... All-in-all, it was a "very" relaxing week. The people there are on "island time". Nothing happens quick, so just slow down, relax, smile and cancel all your appointments.
