I am excited to announce that five-star luxury resort, CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa has joined Anguilla-Beaches.com as a Site Sponsor!
Set on the sparkling, smooth crescent beach that is Rendezvous Bay, amidst swaying royal palms and blossoming bougainvillea, CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa surpasses the term "Anguilla luxury resorts."
We have, of course, been covering CuisinArt's many strides forward in recent years. It was time to archive our previous articles and experience how it all ties together in 2016.
As you know from the website, Sponsorship is not advertising. Our Sponsors enable us to grow the increasing number of ways that we expose Anguilla to the rest of the world. That said, every Sponsor must live up to our high standards. We experience each in-depth.
When I explained that to the good folks at CuisinArt, they didn't blink. "The resort is open to you, Nori," and that is how the whole family ended up taking a mini-vacation "away" (10 miles away!) from home.

I have been experimenting with Vine, a new company that enables publishers to create 6 second videos that loop endlessly (or until you decide to stop it, of course!). At first, I didn't think it would be possible to do much in 6 seconds.
Was I ever wrong.
It's amazing what can be done with this exciting new medium. See for yourself. Here is the link to the newest Anguilla Beaches channel (opens in new window).
Naturally, there are quite a few beach vids. I try to come up with a different idea for each. The Little Bay vid is the most popular so far, with more than 5500 "loops" (viewings) so far (click the video to stop it)...
There is a lot more fun to be had with Vine, though. From the "horror vid" Snake in Paradise to my own underwater close-up encounter with a huge Manta Ray, to the first of many funny "Coconut Chronicles," there is nothing that we won't do and cover!
There are 6-second vids of cliff-diving, a "dinging" pelican, a flash contest at Twitter and there is even "a vine" of Justin Bieber playing drums at Viceroy just 9 days ago!
This new Anguilla channel promises to be one heck of a lot of fun! We plan on adding some off-beat directions. I hope you join us. We'll be having flash contests, and our annual big contest may be all about vines.
HINT: Film lots of footage while you are here!
