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.

Go Hermit Crabs! Go!

What has to be one of the best executed fundraisers in the BVI was held on Saturday night at Peg Leg's at Nanny Cay.  "Gaming Night", as it's called, benefits the Humane Society of the BVI and involves classic gambling games like black jack and roulette (all for a good cause remember!)

One of the most popular games?  The hermit crab races held on the hour.  That's right, we were betting on actual live crabs and their ability to expeditiously move from the center of the ring to the outer edge.  First crab to touch the wall wins!  This video is of the last race of the night...

What a fun night!  We had some luck at the roulette wheel and won a few hands of black jack too!  I haven't heard a total just yet, but with 200+ attendees there had to be quite a lot of money raised for the Humane Society!
