Rendezvous Bay, Anguilla

Sun + Sand at Rendezvous Bay

After weeks of planning and anticipation, my parents finally made it to Anguilla. I was a ball of nerves before they arrived as they were connecting in New York on their way from California. Watching flight after flight being cancelled, I wasn’t overly optimistic that their flight would depart as scheduled. Fortunately, everything went off without a hitch and they arrived in St. Martin ahead of schedule. After a quiet first evening in with a home cooked meal, some rum punch, and Bachelor gossip, we called it a night.

Today we made it our mission to get some sun and see a different side of Anguilla. My parents spent the majority of their time on Meads Bay during their last trip to the island so we decided to show them Rendezvous Bay for an equally beautiful beach with a totally different perspective. Armed with towels, magazines and custom Tervis tumblers, we claimed chairs at the Sunshine Shack where we spent our day.Nana had her BBC as per usual, Atlas splashed around in the water, and my parents soaked up the sun. A perfect start to a perfect day. Tonight we’ll head to Dolce Vita to toast to my mom’s 60th (a bit prematurely, but we’re having an early celebration while she’s here)!
