Today is the first day of the Festival Del Mar in Island Harbour in the east of Anguilla. It runs over the Easter weekend.
It is truly a celebration of all that the sea offers. There is a culinary exhibition, local boat racing, model boat racing, a fishing tournament, optimist and sunfish children's boat races, triathlons and lots of music.
Joe and I are off to visit this event and are hoping that the weather does not spoil all the work that has gone into it. The sea has abated somewhat but it is not completely quiet. At present, the weather is cloudy and overcast.
I am covering the event for a magazine so I am hoping that all the events get to go on. Fingers crossed.
