#AnguillaPostcards 3/2/13. The first anniversary of Dad's passing. We had walked the beach, tossed flowers into the sea, and said a silent prayer. We were rewarded shortly afterward with this sight.

We love your photo of life under the sea. The combination of blues took our breath away... the clear water, your snorkel, bathing suit, even down to your nail polish! A beautiful capture of "Tranquility Wrapped in Blue." And, that's the biggest starfish we have ever seen! We were "star struck" by your photo ;) :)

"Postcards From Anguilla": Contest Background

Over the years, through talking with different residents of and travelers to Anguilla, one truth emerges from all of the stories shared...

"That could only happen in Anguilla."

Perhaps it is our endlessly sunny days (thanks to our desert climate), or the clear, blue seas and cushiony-sands, or the kindness of the people. Whatever the reason, Anguilla's tranquility has a disarming effect on the people who visit its shores, and an ability to align and deliver magical situations.

"Our car was stuck in the sand, and who helped us dig it out? None other than the New York Giants!"

"On a clear day, all alone on one of the most beautiful beaches, he proposed."

"I finally learned to let go and jumped from 'The Rock!'"

"I was walking by myself on Prickly Pear when a man in a yacht invited us to his private beach party. His friends called him 'Leo.'"

As for me? One of my personal favorite memories was a day in October, 2014.

Memories of Caribbean Dream Waves Post-Gonzalo
hurricane gonzalo surfing in anguilla

Catching the surf-perfect, aquamarine waves that Hurricane Gonzalo left in its wake, with just one friend in the water, and not another soul out on the beach!

Another favorite memory was on a trip to Sandy Island...

Dad's Sandy Island Struggle
dad snorkel struggle at sandy island

Flapping around in the surf, my Dad struggled to put on his snorkel flippers at Sandy Island. It took him at least 15 minutes to realize he was trying to put on MY fins!

With all of the warm personal memories and second-hand stories out there, I present our latest contest...
