Just a short hop to the island of Anguilla. We had a wonderful time in St. Martin, and truly enjoyed the gastronomic pleasures there. There is a morning radio chat for cruisers that is organized by one of the service providers on the island (a laundry), and that is a great way to find out more about the island from a cruiser's perspective.
Anguilla is a very different kind of island, low hills and very dry. We were here briefly several years ago, and plan to take the time for more land explorations this trip. It is expensive (in fees) to venture out of the main harbor, so we will base the boat here throughout our stay.
