There is only one cure for baldness. It was invented by a Frenchman. It is called the guillotine.

Thanks very much.Hope you find some property soon.We walked all the way up to Robles,about an hour and 30 min. walk from Basil.Pretty neat up there but the beaches are different.A lot more coral chunks instead of sand on most of the beaches.Not new coral but old coral.We almost made it to Rocky Point but had to turn back to meet our boat.A neat adventure.Some poor soul's sailboat was washed up on the beach.looked like it was large as it was in several hunks.No name was on the boat.But it had a dark navy hull.there is lots of property for sale up there but few good beaches and difficult to get there by boat because of this big ol' reef in the way at Robles Point.Guess it could be made at high tide in shallow draft boat.
Any way read the book you will get a kick out of it.Smooth sailing mon.

My son is getting married on Anguilla in July so in November I traveled to the island to look at the hotels and restuarants. I had the privilage of meeting the Blanchards and seeing their beautiful restaurant. They used to have a speciality food business in Vermont called Blanchard and Blanchard when they decided to move to Anguilla. They have created a gem of a restaurant in a garden setting overlooking a quiet beach. Their book is an interesting account of all their adventures starting their restaurant bisiness.
Anguilla is very different from Ambergris Caye. The resorts are very beautiful but also very upscale and exclusive. So the restaurant patrons are rather upscale too.
That said, many of the problems and triumps experienced by Bob and Melinda would be the same on any scale. All in all it is a good read for anyone considering relocating to a tropical island.
