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.

Whale of a Tale!

We have yet to see one with our own eyes, but we've heard the tales of whales (yes, whales as in Free Willy) splashing about in our Caribbean waters. 

On Tuesday, one such whale was spotted and better yet, photographed by the first mate on a local charter boat.  The photographer's name is Joe Zachary. 

Check it out!

That's Jost van Dyke in the background, where we spent our Saturday.  Unfortunately, we didn't see any whales...  But when that day comes, you can bet I'll have my camera ready!

The only similar spotting we've had is a few dolphins off of White Bay on Jost van Dyke.  This photo was taken about a year ago...

Thanks to IslandGirl over on StThomasblog.com for sharing this whale of a tale!
