A Trip to the Beach: Living on Island Time in the Caribbean - Paperback

Paperback. New. Scotland's Heritage is a unique book. It combines John Hannavy's stunning and original photography of Scotland with an engaging narrative on the country's evolution from 4000 BC to the present day, using both the author's own account of his travels with those of the great travel writers of the past who have explored and been moved by its landscape, architecture and people. Scotland is a country steeped in history, and blessed with a rich and varied heritage set in a stunning landscape. It is a photographer's paradise with light which can change a hundred times a day, each revealing a new aspect of the place. Throughout the country, marks reveal the lives of those who have lived before us over past millennia, while today's landscape is dotted with the remains of buildings erected, enjoyed, altered and abandoned over the past centuries. Scotland's Heritage illustrates some of the country's often-turbulent history by offering a view of the places and the buildings where that history was played out. The text and pictures in the book are arranged thematically with sections entitled The marks left by men; The land of the mountain and the flood; Great houses and humble dwellings; Churches, rituals and monuments; The land of a thousand castles; One thousand years of industry and Living and working by the sea. Travel writers from the last 400 years such as William Camden, Boswell & Johnson, Thomas Pennant, Daniel Defoe and H.V. Morton have all contributed their views on what Sir Walter Scott called 'the land of the mountain and the flood'. The land they journeyed through and the experience of travel then was very different to what we know today, and quotations from their erudite, informative and often amusing observations are used to contrast their Scotland with ours., Three Rivers Press. Paperback. 060980748X Book Description This is the true story of a trip to the beach that never ends. It's about a husband and wife who escape civilization to build a small restaurant on an island paradise -- and discover that even paradise has its pitfalls. It's a story filled with calamities and comedy, culinary disasters and triumphs, and indelible portraits of people who live and work on a sliver of beauty set in the Caribbean Sea. It's about the maddening, exhausting, outlandish complications of trying to live the simple life -- and the joy that comes w hen you somehow pull it off. The story begins when Bob and Melinda Blanchard sell their successful Vermo nt food business and decide, perhaps impulsively, to get away from it all. Why not open a beach bar and grill on Anguilla, their favorite Caribbean is land? One thing leads to another and the little grill turns into an enchant ing restaurant that quickly draws four-star reviews and a celebrity-studded clientele eager for Melinda's delectable cooking. Amid the frenetic pace o f the Christmas "high season," the Blanchards and their kitchen staff -- Cl inton and Ozzie, the dancing sous-chefs; Shabby, the master lobster-wrangle r; Bug, the dish-washing comedian -- come together like a crack drill team. And even in the midst of hilarious pandemonium, there are moments of bliss . As the Blanchards learn to adapt to island time, they become ever more deeply attached to the quirky rhythms and customs of their new home.

ID: 3823514

On a vacation with the family in Barbados, Mel and Bob Blanchard (of the Vermont-based Blanchard & Blanchard specialty foods company) stumble upon a tiny restaurant/shack on a Caribbean beach: I marveled at the ingenuity of the set-up. A secluded spot, sand like flour, customers arriving in bathing suits. The guy barely lifted a finger, cleared at least $35.00, and gave us a lunch we'd remember forever.... The man had sold us a frame of mind. So begins the Blanchards' 10-year pursuit of the illusory notion of "island time." In a literary heartbeat, they abandon the "concrete jungle" that was Vermont and open a restaurant on a little-known island in the British West Indies called Anguilla ("rhymes with vanilla"). Narrated by Mel Blanchard, A Trip to the Beach dispels tired notions of the Caribbean--the steel drums, the lush landscapes, and acres of swaying palm trees--and instead focuses on the understated elegance and easy rhythms of the sublimely "flat, and scrubby" island. Though lacking the richness and finesse of Frances Mayes, and the wit and wisdom of Peter Mayle, Mel Blanchard nonetheless forges a new path in travel writing as the Martha Stewart of the Caribbean. A remarkably intuitive and inspired chef, Mel writes poignant passages on running a kitchen in Anguilla. Here she exposes the meat of the story, sharing her many outrageous adventures--how to cater to pampered and demanding guests, how to cook for a ful americas,biographies,caribbean,caribbean and west indies,culinary,general,history,memoirs,politics and social sciences,professionals and academics Travel Writing, Three Rivers Press
