Today we joined in the celebration of Anguilla separating from Nevis/St Kitts in a bloodless revolution in 1967. It is a day for all to gather and enjoy this lovely island and their self rule. The day begins early as old and young assemble in the Valley for a parade and civic awards. We skipped the parade, but headed directly to the Sandy Ground for the annual Anguilla Day Sail Race. The harbor was hopping at 8:30 with race time still 90 minutes away. I was in heaven – Blue Skies, Lots of Sailboats (9 meter), and great people shots.
