Tuesday morning, up early. No black out shades, remember? Going to head off to Geraud's to surprise my family. Hop in the rental, turn the key, and ...... nothing! Sh!t. Call Ronnie Bryan and he is at Turtles Nest in 30 minutes with a new battery. What a great guy, super customer service!
I'm in sales so I know good customer service. He exemplifies it. Anyhow, off to Gerauds to load up on danish, banana bread and a sticky bun. With 2 coffees its like $15. Delicious.
We head off to Shoal Bay East and park ourselves near Madearimans. We rented fold up beach chairs from Ronnie, too, and were glad we did.....the cushions were nasty looking (btw chairs from Ronnie are $3 each chair per day). Spent a great day at SBE, walked to both ends, and had lunch at Madearimans. I had the crawfish for the first time (3 for $39 I think?) wife and kids split a pizza, we each had 2 rums punches and the girls each had a mocktail...$115 I think. The pizza is great and the rum drinks were STRONG! Saw both Zemi and Manoah and they are both beautiful.
Not sure about the negativity surrounding Zemi location as the hotel is stunning and can't be more than 200 yards or so from Manoah. Is the beach as nice as at the point? No, not quite, but it's still a nice stretch of sand.
Tired from doing nothing all day so dinner at Blanchards Beach Shack. Bunch of odds and ends and some milkshakes....$75. Really a decent meal and a fabulous value for Anguilla. Highly recommend for at least one dinner for those staying on Meads or anyone with kids.
Heading to dinner, gotta scoot. Wednesday review coming soon ......
