A day on SBE for us will always mean setting up camp at Elodia's (at least, when they're open), and weekends at Elodia's generally mean grilling, so it was with an eager step that we unloaded the car and headed up to greet Carole, one of the ladies who runs it. We also love the fact that they offer small pavilions with chaises instead of just the usual umbrella -- as we so often seek the shade, this is the perfect set up for us. The fact that it's the prettiest and quietest part of SBE? Well, that's just gravy.
Not long after we'd settled in, a pair of girls and their younger brother came by and asked if I'd be interested in purchasing any of the jewelry. Looks like the Rainbow loom/rubber band jewelry craze was going full tilt on Anguilla, just like back home in the States! I picked out a colorful handband that must have taken some time to make, and they offered to throw in a complimentary bracelet in the colors of my choosing.

We had another round of drinks and then decided to head home without dessert. We remembered to use our Anguilla Card this time (we forgot on our first night that Mango's honors it!) and thus saved 10%. Once back home, we had shared a big bowl of ice cream and tried to watch television, but we couldn't find anything that didn't look, well, stupid. So it was off to bed with a book, which turned out to be much more satisfying.
