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.

Beach Baby

We spent much of Thursday and Friday running around the island trying to reconnect phones and internet.  So far, we're one for two...  Still no internet at the house.  We're working with our neighbors to find a solution that works for both us! 

On Saturday, we were determined to get to the beach!  We met our friends, Paloma and Scott, for lunch at Islands on the West End of the island.  They too have had a baby recently!  We were so excited to meet their bundle of joy, Jude.  He is a doll!  He and Anna Drake are just a month and a half apart. 
After lunch, we lathered Anna Drake in baby-approved SPF 50 lotion and headed to Smuggler's Cove, our favorite beach.  She LOVED it.  Here are some photos of our beach excursion. 
Her yellow swimsuit is too big for her, but the smaller ones haven't arrived on island as of yet.  We shipped one box of baby things, and of course, her swimsuits and hats are in that box.  
She liked the way the water felt on her legs.  We didn't take her all the way in...maybe next time.  We want to make sure the water is warm enough. 
 And the last one...
This will surely be one of MANY baby beach days!
