Escape (to the BVIs)

Here we are, winging our way to the Caribbean. Above, clouds; below, sea.

Welcome to the Moorings!

Life aboard, with clothes on the line.

We’ve escaped to one of the top ten sailing destinations in the world…

The Baths

There was one special place in the BVIs that I missed on previous trips. It’s an unusual geologic formation known as “The Baths” and it’s located on the southern end of Virgin Gorda. The beach is littered with huge granite boulders that form grottoes.

We were dropped off near shore at one end of The Baths, and our party of four “first timers” explored the caves and the boulders and hiked through the brush on the trail to the other end of The Baths. It was beautifully breathtaking, and the pictures below barely do it justice. It’s one of those “must see” places for anyone visiting the British Virgin Islands. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Culture–Caribbean Style

I love the use of vivid colors in the Caribbean culture. And it is very evident at Cane Garden Bay, one of my favorite places on earth. There, you will find great restaurants, great music, and spectacular sunsets. The colorful buildings in the photos below are Rhymers Beach Restaurant & Hotel, Quito’s Gazebo, Stanley’s Welcome Bar, the Big Banana and Myetts Garden & Grill. With all that vibrant color and so many choices for food and beverage, can you tell me what’s not to love about Cane Garden Bay? To top it off, this is a great spot for watching a spectacular sunset.

We’ll be heading that way one week from today, and I can’t wait to step foot on that sugar white sand after a day of sailing the turquoise waters of the British Virgin Islands.
