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.

Playing the Part of Tourist

It's amazing to me how drastically the weather changes around here...

For the most of December, and even into the first week of January, the waves on the north side of the island were consistently BIG.  Remember the video from Smuggler's Cove???  When we were "body surfing"???

Well, imagine our surprise when we went to Smuggler's over the weekend and saw this:

It was so calm you could SUP!  I went out in the water to get a closer shot, when Michael and I were approached by a tourist who asked if she could take our picture. 

I wasn't really up for explaining the story about living here, why we came, how we like it, etc...so I said "Sure! Where y'all from?"  She said "New York. And whatta bout yous guys?"  We said "Tennessee.  Thanks for the picture!"

Part of me felt badly for misleading her, but figured I offer to take photos of other people all the time, it was just some good karma coming back our way...

That is a flat calm sea. That's what our Gulf Coast looks like here in the Naples/Ft. Myers area. I wish we had some waves so I could learn to surf. Great photos guys! cheers!
