Welcome! Tally ho!

Our B.V.I. Adventure is designed to give our family, friends and any other interested followers a look into the life of two expatriates making their way on the island of Tortola. Tortola is the largest island in the British Virgin Islands.

So, why did we move 2,000 miles away from our home in Knoxville, Tennessee? Michael accepted a position as the director of retail and international sales for a Caribbean clothing brand.

Cheers!

Day 13: The Baths

This has to be one of my favorite experiences thus far in the British Virgin Islands.  The Baths are located on the island of Virgin Gorda.  Experiencing them is one part rock climbing and one part swimming. 



The Baths is comprised of natural rock formations made from volcanic eruptions.  These boulders {official term: batholiths} are magnificent.  Here is one of my favorite shots taken inside one of the caves, looking out to sea.



I was so proud of my parents.  They are in their mid-sixties and they trusted us enough to lead them through the Baths to reach our final destination: Devil's Cove.  It's spectacular!

 

To reward ourselves for reaching Devil's Cove and making our way back, we enjoyed a cold Carib while soaking up some sun.


It was a full day!  The ferry ride to Virgin Gorda is $30 round trip, and when the taxi drops you off at the Baths, the BVI Parks Department collects a $3 fee.  Not a bad price for the experience of a lifetime!
