A Trip to the Beach book.
A Trip to the Beach book. As the Blanchards learn to adapt to island time, they become ever more deeply attached to the quirky rhythms and customs of their new home. Until disaster strikes: Hurricane Luis, a category-4 storm with hour gusts, devastates Anguilla. Melinda and Robert Blanchard, after selling their business at far below what they should have, decided they want to live on the island of Anguilla.
For the Blanchards the secret of "island time" is a life of breathing deeper and walking slower. The Blanchards are truly fascinating people, and I have found myself desperately pondering planning a trip to Anguilla, JUST to eat at Blanchard's a story. Along the way we meet the locals against a background of palms, bougainvilleas, frigate birds, blue skies, and sandy beaches.
