Gumbs in Anguilla

Gumbs in Anguilla

This is Hutson Gumbs, the taxi driver called him a Historian. He is the owners of my Guesthouse the Casa Nadine�s here on the Island of Anguilla. My 20 dollars live with the locals or live more with workers that came from other islands guesthouse.

Hutson Gumbs

I have met Hutson, I met a man in St Martin called Fatso Gumps or Gumbs, I am getting confused,  that rents cars, I seen a road near Blowing point here on Anguilla called something Gumbs.

(Mistake in spelling)
 I just realized Forrest Gump is the name of the Tom Hanks movie where I have heard this name.

Nonetheless, Hutson is a class act, can tell you the skinny on the island of Anguilla, I do not think he cares about money. He is just a good man enjoying life and hanging around.

I walked over to the graveyard close to the guesthouse, and look at some graves.

The first one I look at is a Gumbs, what a big name on this Island. I really enjoyed learning about the Gumbs, as this is a culture of it owns, a family, been here a long time. Make sure he tells you the story about William Gumbs, the Sharks, and the decision of William Gumbs in 1850 to marry Catherine Flemings while swimming to save his life.
