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.

Frogs and Lizards and Scorpions, Oh My!

It's been much like the Wizard of Oz around our house lately.  Picture this...

I'm confronted by a different creepy or crawly creature each time I'm go in or out of the front door it seems.  Not surprisingly, I let out a cry for help as if I'm the cowardly lion asking Dorothy (in this case, played by Michael - sorry babe) to come help me find the courage to cope.

On Tuesday it was a massive frog hanging out above our front door.  I hope it wasn't the poisonous kind!  The next morning it was a scorpion that dropped onto Michael's shoulder as he left the house to walk Milly.  Apparently, he had a friend; I stumbled across him on Thursday as I went to slip on my flip flops.  Throw in the dozen or more lizards we see through out the day hanging out on our porch and we have it all here at Gecko Manor II.  Yikes!

I found your blog through Mamapundit; we, too, are from the States (Colorado) but are spending one year two blocks from the beach in Australia while my husband participates in a teacher exchange program. I just posted a couple of days ago on my blog (www.tunheimfamily.blogspot.com) about the massive spider we found--I'd much prefer frogs!
On a side note, I've been to the BVI (Norman, Peter, Cooper, Cane Garden Bay, Tortola), and it's absolutely gorgeous. I hope you enjoy your time there!
