One Last Look

At the risk of becoming one of those tiresome people who make you look at endless pictures of their vacation, Im doing one more post dedicated to my trip to Anguilla. Between the lounging around on the beach and the drinking of much rum, I did manage to do a fair amount of site seeing. We had a few cloudy days, so I spent them driving around the island with my head hanging out the back seat window taking pictures, periodically yelling "Stop!" at my father and making him pull over on some back road so I could jump out and take a shot (of the photographic varity).

Animal Life
Goats, they're everywhere, you notice them the moment you start looking around. They are a main food source for the locals, and they let them run wild. Im not sure how anyone tells which goat belongs to whom, but they are a big part this island's charm. Although you have to be careful when you're driving around, they tend to wander out into the street.

Drive by Goats

A stroll by the ocean.

There were other types of animal life popping up to pose for their close up. Some were beautiful.
Others? Well,let's just say they had character.

Big Ass Hermit Crab

Flora and Fauna

Around the Island

The rest of the pictures are just shots taken around the island throughout the week. These below are the ones I hope capture the flavor of Anguilla. It is beautiful in that Carribean island way everyone expects it to be, but there is also beauty in the daily lives of the people who live there.

Okay, okay, Im hearing the desperate cries of Uncle from the aether so I will stop torturing you with vacation photos. Well, maybe one more. This was the sunset on the last night we were there, and seemed a fitting end to a beautiful vacation. Thanks for letting me share it with you (Like you had a choice).

I personally love the photos of vacation, at least yours! That last shot of the kids in the water is my personal fav.

Okay...I DID post a comment earlier - WTF?
I think I said something to the effect that I never grow tired of looking at pictures, and these were some really nice shots - very professional.

The second-to-last one, of the kids in the water, is priceless. Really, really beautiful.
