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.

Day 40: The Dove

One of the best expat bars is The Dove, in Road Town.  Known for its wine selection and French/Asian cuisine, it's located on the second floor of an old building on Main Street...has a very tree house feel, doesn't it? 

Michael and I went early and enjoyed a delicious dinner.  He had sushi and I had the monkfish. 

Mine was amazing!!!  That's a lobster cream sauce on the left of the plate there, and perfectly fried plantains in the center.  The highlight of the dish was the single oversized ravoli stuffed with ginger braised beef.  To.Die.For.

We still made it to the pub on Friday night, where Charlie T was serving up his sand bucket!  {Sorry for the drunk goggle setting...}

We had a great time hanging out with Lorna (of the Naked Lorna drink) - she is essentially the Michelle Obama of the island.  Her husband was the longtime prime minister here, which made her first lady.  His party lost the last election so he is the leader of the opposition. 

She is so beautiful!  Can you believe she's also a grandmother?  Anyway, Lorna invited us to a fundraiser for Haiti on Virgin Gorda for the following night.  Michael gave me the nod, we accepted her offer, and then it happened...we exchanged phone numbers!

I'm so star-struck by this woman!
