Folk Wisdom. The "cedar" trees that grow in Anguilla are currently in full bloom with white or pink flowers. It is very attractive. Folk wisdom says not to eat barracuda or Old Wife fish while the cedars are in bloom or you might get food poisoning. Makes a lot of sense since the trees bloomed after 3 weeks of passing rain storms and these same storms stir up the ocean bottom, causing the fish to ingest more of the bacteria that causes fish poisoning. That is the theory.
Private villas for rent.

Sur La Plage. This private villa is directly on Mead's Bay in the West End of Anguilla. The 2 acre site has 2 villas and a studio to handle up to 8 guests: Click Here.

Guest Director from New York. This summer the Apple Theatre Company’s production of Children of Eden will be directed by volunteer Tony Rust from Brooklyn, New York. Tony has worked in theatre for over twenty years in many areas other than directing; he has worked professionally as an actor and a technician among other things. He is very enthusiastic about working with students in the company this summer, and hopes to produce a piece of art that everyone can enjoy. Also joining him on this venture are his wife Janet, a drama teacher in a New York public school, and their two-year-old son Glenn. Janet will be working in a workshop with teachers from Anguilla regarding the use of Drama as a teaching tool in the classroom. For more information on the summer program, email Eleanor Stacey at P.S. Eleanor is still looking for a villa or apartment for this volunteer couple to stay in.
