Anchor at Hurricane Hole

About six weeks ago I posted some photos and the location of a old large anchor now resting in Hurricane Hole. There is a similar sized anchor lying just off the old pier at Denis Bay, but in this case only one of the flukes is exposed.

St. John Film Society Presents: “The Milagro Beanfield Wars”

The following is a press release from the St John Film Society. I’d just like to add a little note of local interest about one of the film:

The Denis Bay Connection
Some illustrious St. Johnians have lived at Denis Bay either as renters or caretakers. St. Johnian, Thomas Thomas, served as one of the first caretakers and Robert and Nancy Gibney were among the first renters, having leased the property in 1947. The late Carl Frank, the founder of Holiday Homes was also a caretaker. He passed on the enviable job to Peter Griffith and family. One of the Griffith’s daughters, Melanie Griffith, who is one of the stars in the Milagro Beanfield Wars, spent much of her childhood at Denis Bay.

“Milagro” is the Spanish word for “miracle”
THE MILAGRO BEANFIELD WAR
by Robert Redford (117 min) 1988
“Whimsical, yet credible”

This enjoyable tale of a small village’s fight over water rights is told with magical realism and humor. The residents of a small humble New Mexican agricultural community are threatened when big business appropriates their water rights to supply a posh housing development, thus depriving them of their one source of livelihood, crop raising. One man courageously stands up to fight the usurpers and causes division within the community.

Stars Ruben Blades, Sonia Braga, Melanie Griffith, Daniel Stern and John Heard.
” … a populist fable set in some beautiful New Mexican landscapes about one stubborn Chicano’s battle against an uncaring system.” The New York Times
