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.

Mystique Day Sail

On Tuesday, we headed out for a fun day of sailing on the Mystique - a beautiful 45' catamaran.  We headed over to Jost van Dyke for a snorkel around Diamond Point.  Our captain, Nico (sp?) suggested we look under a particular rock on the south side of the point.  There, he said, we would find lobster!  And sure enough...

Do you see the tentacles sticking out from underneath the coral?  We dove down to see it better, but unfortunately our accuracy with the camera while diving was not so good.

Our next stop was the always beautiful White Bay.  The water was the perfect shade of blue.  Here's Whitney on the bow of the boat:

Nico escorted us to shore via the dinghy, which was really great since we had Anna Drake in tow.  She wore her sporty life jacket!

Before having a Painkiller at Soggy Dollar Bar, we had to decide where to have lunch!  There's One Love on the far end, Jewel's Snack Shack for hamburgers, among other restaurants.  We knew we wanted lobster and this looked too good to pass up!

We ordered the lobster pizza plus half pepperoni and half jalapeno.  It was delicious!  We highly recommend it!

After lunch, Whitney snapped this family photo!  Christmas card, maybe?  :)

Here's the crew in line at Soggy Dollar Bar!
By three o'clock it was time to get back on the Mystique and return to Torotla.  Anna Drake loved it aboard the boat.
We will absolutely choose the Mystique again!  It was much easier than renting our own boat for the day, especially now that we have a little one!
