Solomons in Paradise – The Anguilla Trip

I’m back from the #SolomonsinParadise renewing of vows. What a great trip. The ceremony was moving and the company was spectacular. I’m thinking these destination weddings are really something special. You get to hang out with your friends, bond with acquaintances and make new friends on these jaunts. Fun.



The Port. Anguilla basically has one road that goes North and South, and then little roads jutting off, some paved some not.

but it was memorable


St. Gregory’s , the only Catholic Church on the British controlled island with 37 churches_DSC0696 (Custom)

The smaller one above was the original church, the larger one was built in 2008.
There are no windows, just brick and screens on the right side allow light in and ventilate the church.
The opening door on the right next to the Alter is the Saint Mother Theresa Chapel

In Anguilla people can’t always afford the 2nd floor when they build their houses, but they make their intentions known
This is a common site all over the island.3-1-2017 8-38-12 AM (Custom)
