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!

Fear of Flying? Obviously not Me!

The last time we went to the British Virgin Islands, we took a puddle jumper from San Juan to Beef Island (Tortola). While it was an exciting ride with amazing views (I got to sit in the co-pilot’s seat!), we’re trying something different this time. Stay tuned and I’ll let you know how the new method of getting to Tortola works out for us.

If I have any sort of internet connection on Saturday when we arrive, I’ll tell you how we got to Tortola! Hope to see you back here soon!
