We owe a debt of thanks to those who maintain an Anguilla webcam. It's work, it's expensive, and it sure is mighty nice of them to think of us lovers of Anguilla. After all...
When we still lived in Montreal, there were times when I just couldn't stand the dismal winters. January was so cold. And February was still brutal, but we would be getting close.
Close to what?
Close to our family's March Spring Break to the best of all Caribbean islands!
But what would we do when we couldn't get away to the warm, welcoming Anguilla beaches?
Let Anguilla come to us, live through the Anguilla webcams situated on the island!
It's not easy to maintain a quality webcam in Anguilla. Sea salt would "eat" the video cam if it was placed outdoors. So it needs to be placed inside a glass enclosure, mounted in a safe place, hook up to fast enough bandwidth to give us all a good show, and maintain it!
So my profound thanks to those who maintain Anguilla webcams.
Four Seasons (formerly Viceroy) provides a magnificent, live, streaming video of magnificent Meads. You can see the entire sweep of the beach, all the way to Malliouhana Hotel, at the far end of the beach.
Outstanding Anguilla cam! (If you cannot view below, click here to see the cam.)
NOTE: To view Four Seasons' webcam above, view in a desktop browser (this webcam is not compatible with mobile devices).
The most popular webcam of all is BACK! Yep, once again we can take in the view from Roy's in Sandy Ground.
They had maintained an older webcam for years before. The second webcam was lost to Hurricane Gonzalo, and then the third to Hurricane Irma. Now, they are back up! Their new, modern cam streams in real time, letting you check out the weather, the sun, sea and sand and you can see who's on the beach ;-)
One look at this webcam and you feel like you're sitting on the rail at Roy's!
Active X... ADSL... Axis... MJPEG.. video.cgi.... it's a geek's dream. Somehow, they bring this technical magic to our computers.
Our thanks go out to those who take the time and expense to keep webcams of Anguilla.
We know it's not easy keeping us warm!
