That's a wrap!
Since launching our "Where's YOUR Anguilla Card" contest a few weeks ago (with a $150 dinner for 2 at AXA Seafood House as the prize!), we've received so many terrific submissions. We tried narrowing them down to the "top 5." But, alas, we were unable to choose just 5.
We selected 7 finalists. From there, it was up to you to choose the winner :-)
Based on your votes on this page (by way of Facebook Like and Comments), Abbi (the owner of AXA Seafood House) and I are excited to announce the winner.
Robert's photo, "I'm going to Anguilla!!!"...
... with an impressive 104 Likes and a comment of support on this page!
In addition to that terrific entry, Robert had shared two other fun photos..
Super submissions, Robert. Congratulations!
Now, for your prize...
Redeemable on your next trip to Anguilla, dinner at AXA Seafood House is outstanding!
New and highly-acclaimed, AXA Seafood House is our good friends over at Dolce Vita, Abbi and Christopher's latest restaurant.
The island's only seafood-centric eatery and the menu is oh-so-enticing. Think: tartares of the day, carpaccios of the day, crab cakes, tempura, lobster mac and cheese, seafood paella, yellowfin tuna prepared Mediterranean style with rosemary and chick pea puree...
The food is indeed fresh, AND delicious!
Inside AXA Seafood House
All in a laidback and cool yet upscale setting, with down to earth and accommodating service, Abbi and Christopher have "done it again!"
Since launching the Anguilla Card, we have received many emails from happy Card Holders. Some have lovingly printed out their digital (PDF) version of the Card. They have posted them to office walls at work, framed them and placed them on their mantles, and up on their fridges, reminders of good times to come.
Inspired by their enthusiasm, I wondered...
"Where's YOUR Anguilla Card?"
In early January we asked you to snap a photo of you and your Anguilla Card, either at home or here in Anguilla. Then, either post it to our Facebook page or, email it to me.
After 3 weeks of collecting submissions, we set out with the mission to narrow them all down to the top 5. But, it was impossible to just choose 5 out of the number of clever, heart-warming and fun entries.
The result? 7 finalists. :-)
"It has been snowing in northeast Ohio,
hence the salt and snow on my truck.
But my license number and Anguilla card will
always remind me of the
beautiful beaches of Anguilla.
Counting down the days 'til our next
visit as we keep warm.
Maybe I need to fly to AXA, which is a goal.
Fly a Cessna 210 to AXA." -Donna
"My wife and I had our bedroom done
over to look like a room in an Anguilla
A huge mural of Rendezvous Bay is painted
and framed out
with sheer drapes in our
bedroom on the wall infront of
our bed so that every night
before we go to sleep and every
morning when we wake up it looks like we
are looking out our window
onto our favorite beach.
If you zoom in to the middle of "the window sill"
you will see that's where
we keep our card:)" -Jeff
