Our Anguilla Day Trip

St. Gerard's Church
My husband and I visited Anguilla for a day while we honey-mooned in St. Martin. We instantly felt like we were in paradise. We spent the entire day relaxing on Shoal Bay (which is heaven on earth!!!) and ate lunch at Gwen's.
Our driver gave us a quick tour of the island and one thing really caught my eye... The beautiful and unique front of St. Gerard's Church in the Valley.
I thought it would be the perfect addition to our travel photo collection that we have hanging in our hallway at home. Unfortunately, I was too shy to ask to get out of the car to snap some photos. I completely regret not taking any pictures in that moment now! I thought we would have an opportunity to come back, but sadly we didn't.
That was a hard lesson for me on speaking up!
Anyways, I am scrounging the Internet for someone who has a high res photo of the front of the church, who would be so kind enough to send it to me for our collection.
I don't know when I'll have another opportunity to visit beautiful Anguilla again. If anyone can help, I would deeply appreciate it!
Thanks for your time.
Nori's Reply: Thank you so much for your lovely story, Darlene! St. Gerard's Church definitely is unique, my favorite Anguilla church too. I added the photo just for you. :-)
P.S. Check your mail box!
P.P.S. Anguilla has so many pretty churches of true architectural interest, it makes it hard to believe that there are only 12,000 people or so on the island! Here is a page with many church photos.
