He was undoubtedly the youngest known visitor to Montserrat, only weeks old when he arrived here with his parents in December, 2011 for the Christmas holidays.

Now at 18 months-old, Felix Reuben Louis Davis, grandson of Governor Davis and his wife Sujue, was back in Montserrat for a second visit. Felix crawled into Montserrat’s history books as the island’s youngest ever visitor at just 9 weeks old when he came to spend Christmas 2011 with his grandparents. His parents, Amy Davis, a diplomat with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Daniel Davis, a doctor specialising in Geriatric medicine are delighted to bring him back to Montserrat and have been enjoying the same warm hospitality they did on their first visit.

“It’s nice to escape the cold of Switzerland,” Daniel told The Montserrat Reporter “and Felix is loving his time in Montserrat, discovering new places and visiting some familiar ones too.”

Felix arrived on March 16, just in time to join in the last of the St Patrick’s Day celebrations. In addition, unlike his last visit, according to his parents, he managed to stay awake for most of the events! He particularly enjoyed the African musical festival and could be seen dancing along to the music at the front of the crowd. He also went to the Salem Slave Feast and enjoyed the local food and drink.

And even after festival Felix has been very busy. He visited the residents at the Golden Years home, took part in Auntie Madge’s sports day, kayaked around to Rendezvous Bay, attended a reception at Government House for the crew of visiting RFA Wave Knight and helped his busy grandma to give out prizes at the MSS sports day. Even at  his tender age he seemed particularly impressed with all the developments at Little Bay since his last visit, especially the new m

“Unfortunately this is only a short visit” said Amy, who is expecting another baby boy in August, “but we hope to come again with Felix and his little brother – though I doubt he will break Felix’s record as the youngest ever visitor!”
