Lisa and Steve arrived on a Wednesday afternoon. Steve, who is a morning person, gotta love that!, announced that he wanted three things on this trip, fishing, snorkeling and watch the super bowl. Sadly, on Thursday morning Lisa decided that she was sea sick. Ugh it was not sea sickness, she had a flu. God Love Her, she stuck it out sick as a dog on Thursday while we rented a car and drove from Trellis Bay on Beef Island to Road Town on Tortola to get Steve a fishing license. Then we (Kirk, Steve and Donna) had lunch at Nanny Cay's Peg Leg restaurant while Lisa slept on a chaise lounge under a palm tree at the beach. By Friday afternoon we were swimming in North Sound. We had a great time. Saw the mocko jumbies show at Leverick Bay BBQ in North Sound. The next day we sailed to Jost Van Dyke; Steve fished (no luck), we went to White Bay for the famous Soggy Dollar Bar's "Painkiller" on Jost Van Dyke, saw porpoises real close when in the dingy, enjoyed Super Bowl at Foxy's. Next day we headed over to Benures Bay for some snorkeling then to the Virgin Gorda Baths and back to Trellis.
Cool houses Lisa liked. These are on the end of Tortolla near Sopers Hole
The Baths. You have to see them to believe how cool they are.
At the BBQ at Leverick Bay. This Jumbie would not take no for an answer. Lisa said her knees kept hitting the wall in front of her.
Swimming in North Sound. I think Lisa and Steve are happy. I know I was.
Super Bowl at Foxy's. Ross and Diana sailed over from St Thomas to meet Lisa and Steve and hang out for the Super Bowl. They even came to Benures Bay. We had a great time. Thank you Nathan for letting me bring your Ravens shirt with me.
Under sail on our way to Benures. Pictures compliments of Ross and Diana.
Lunch with Dad and Carolyn
The day after Lisa and Steve left, we met the cruise ship that Dad and Carolyn were on in Road Town. Their friends Jo and Bob joined us. We got in a taxi and road up over the mountain and saw the views of Tortola and then had lunch at Cane Garden Bay. Was so super to see them.
Was a sad afternoon when we said goodbye. No more Lisa and Steve or Pops and Carolyn.
