On this last night in the British Virgin Islands, I feel relaxed and in a blissful state of mind. I feel fortunate that this is my life, and am very thankful for the experiences that I have had. So here’s to life! You gotta live it, to dig it!!!
My week on Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands is coming to an end. I am thinking back to what an amazing time it has been here, from the boat ride over, to getting lost a few times driving around on the island, to beautiful scenery found no where else on this planet, smoking hookah under the stars on the beach, drinking lots of BBC’s (Bailey’s - Banana - Colada’s), staying beach front in a private villa, swimming with all sorts of creatures including a baby sea turtle (yes its ok to say “Aww”) and yes figuring out how to work with bad internet connection.
I am including a photo taken of me at “The Baths” which is an amazing granite boulder formation of caves, tunnels, pathways, pretty much the ultimate playground for beach lovers!
After a very successful day working from the villa today, I decided it was time to get in the water. As you can see from the photo, my sunset swim was absolutely amazing! With the orange sky above me and the clear blue water below, I darted around the water on a search for the unknown, I tried to scare up a lobster, went face to face with a baby sea turtle and Foot to ? with some Fire Coral. A little gash but I’m not complaining, because Virgin Gorda has left her “Mark” on me and I am proud to bear it!
This place has stolen my heart and I could stay here forever!
So I promised myself that I would be better about blogging, so I am going to really get myself up and going on here. I originally intended for this blog to document everything from my decision to move to an island in the Caribbean to the planning, the moving, the chaos, the fun and so on and so on. But now it is just going to be a day to day (when I get around to it) blog. If you like it you like it, if you don’t, you don’t. But I hope you do!
I spent New Year’s Eve at one of the biggest party spots in the world! Foxy’s Bar, Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands! What an amazing experience!
Hanging with my girl Toya at Big Bamboo on St. Thomas, watching fire dancers! Love when we have a chance to hang outside “The RW House”…
Trav just made me a new hat, snowing like crazy. 10 more days til Paradise!
