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 171: St. John

It was no Soccer Taco, but on Day 171, we headed over to St. John and had lunch at Margarita Phil's.  It was completely worth the ferry ride!  Just look at that margarita!!! 

Monday was a holiday here in the BVI - Whit Monday actually.  What better reason to get off island and "back to the states," well not technically, but at least to a US territory??  Ha!  The shopping is really great on St. John as we discovered a few weeks ago

We found a local brewery there, appropriately named St. John Brewers.   Michael and I tried the tropical mango pale ale...it was delicious! 

The company's microbrewery, the Virgin Islands Tap Room, is in Mongoose Junction in Cruz Bay, if you're going to be in the area soon. Apparently distribution is spreading through out the United States - none in Tennessee yet, just Florida, New Jersey, and a few others...

With my parents in town, it was the perfect day trip after a few days on the boat.  It wasn't necessarily any less wet though...

As we prepared to head back to the ferry, the skies opened up and there was a torrential rain!  In almost six months, this is the first time I've been caught in the rain like this.  My dad and Michael made it to the dock just before the worst of it; my mom and I were not so lucky... 

Getting soaked was completely worth it though - found a great dress at Nell!  :)
