Personal Journey | Anguilla, with the Clintons

Philadelphia Inquirer : "Though we are confirmed Caribbeaners, we had not been to gorgeous, sophisticated, yet disarmingly friendly Anguilla, and were both excited and disappointed to learn it is a preferred haunt of some of the rich and famous. The name-dropping was constant: It was supposedly Joan Rivers' yacht anchored offshore, Denzel Washington's villa that the Clintons were staying in, George Clooney's jet that had just touched down. Katie Couric and Penelope Cruz were also said to be 'on island,' and did you know that Brad and Jen had broken up right there on our beach! But with some of the Caribbean's most remarkable beaches and all those parrot fish in the deep-turquoise water, we were not about to spend our vacation star-searching. At least not all of it."
