Honeymoon Trip to Anguilla – Wednesday, July 24, 2013
For the Baldo reader’s out there who are interested, I thought I’d document our Honeymoon trip to Anguilla. We had a great time for sure. We ate great food, lounged on incredible beaches, met some wonderful people, and walked hand in hand down our new journey of love and life with each other. I hope you enjoy these journal notes as much as we enjoyed living them.
Viceroy Anguilla, Ocean View Suite and Aleta Breakfast Buffet
The day started with me being up and Sadie being completely crashed in bed. I took some pictures of the room, our balcony, and our view.
I let Sadie sleep for a long while, but then did my husbandly duty and teased her until she awoke so that we could go to breakfast at Viceroy’s Aleta. What a beautiful little restaurant with amazing decor. The breakfast spread was beautiful as well, and everything was pretty good, especially the peach and amaretto Danish I had.
But as good as my fruits, yogurts, granola, and danishes were, I wanted a couple eggs to go with it all. What a mistake to order them! My breakfast cost $30 and Sadie’s $22. $8 for 2 eggs. Stupid. $65 for breakfast…. ridiculous! We wouldn’t be doing that breakfast again for the rest of our trip. After Aleta’s ridiculously overpriced breakfast, we went back to our room and lounged all morning. It was nice just to chill.
Tasty’s Restaurant, Anguilla
Around noon, we showered and dressed to head out to lunch at another highly recommended restaurant, Tasty’s. What a tasty place! We had the Coconut Curry Chicken, and the Steamed Whole Snapper. Both where quite good. The fish was served with its own amazing steaming broth, which was incredibly flavored. Served with root veggies and cooking bananas, this was a great dish. The curry was sweet and sour from lemons and pumpkin, and had a strong Indian curry flavor. Good stuff!
Rendezvous Bay Honeymoon Fun
We then drove around and went down a new road which landed us right on Rendezvous Bay. What a gorgeous beach! We went straight in the water and spent a couple hours looking for seashells on the shallow watered shores. We had a blast together picking up shells and corral chunks with our feet and hands. The sand was super soft and a joy to play in. We were like little kids playing all day in the surf. I think that’s what a honeymoon is all about, isn’t it? Just playing with each other without any concerns in the world like a couple of love drunk kids.
Viceroy Anguilla’s Sunset Lounge Beautiful Sunset View
We got back to the hotel around 5:00, cleaned up, and got ready for dinner. We decided to go out to the very nice, fine dining, Veya restaurant. Sadie wanted to get especially beautified, which I welcomed wholeheartedly. While she was getting ready, I went out and took some pictures of the sunset at Viceroy’s Sunset Lounge. The sunset and view was spectacular, and so was my wife.
Veya Restaurant Serves Spectacular Food on Anguilla
We got to Veya at 8:00. Sadie looked amazing, and the restaurant was very cool in a tree house type setting. What a perfect evening together. The food was incredible. We had an awesome conch carpaccio. Neither of us had eaten conch before, and we both enjoyed its mild and sweet flavor.
We also ordered Veya’s Shrimp phyllo dough “cigars” as our other appetizer (not great, and total waste of time). My Grilled Local Lobster with Passion Fruit Mustard Sauce entree was divine, and Sadie’s Jerk Spiced Tuna on Grilled Pineapple was also very good.
As we were eating our Coconut Cake with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (very delicious), we struck up a conversation with the couple at the table next to us. They were from New York, and had only been married for about 8 months. She was a school teacher, so her and Sadie had a good chat. He worked in finance, and I’m sure they made a pretty good living. Very nice people, and they happened to be also staying at Viceroy. We figured we’d see them again at the hotel during our week stay, but never did.
We closed our day in each others arms back in our luxury Viceroy accommodations.
Another awesome day in Anguilla.
