Instead of overwhelming people with a million pictures and an insanely long blog post, I decided to break it up, so here is the rest of my trip :)
Day 4: Virgin Gorda
The first stop of the day was Leverick bay. I have been waiting all week for an island with cute buildings and today I finally got it:) We stopped for a bit and hit the bar while the crew took care of a few errands, then it was back to sailing the ocean for us. Next, we stopped a little farther up the island at Bitter End where we got to sail Hobie Cats. Haha we almost tipped it once or twice, but that just adds to the experience right? Then, we got to watch a tarpon feeding. They were jumping out of the water and the guy feeding them even got them to eat his arm. It was crazy to see how big the fish were out of the water. Then, we sailed over to Prickly Pear for the night because it was a little more secluded. It was cool to have our own space for the night with no other boats to obstruct our view.
Day 5: Anagada
Day 6: Tortola
Today, I heard banging on the hatch in our room, and when I woke up, Kenetha was poking her head in and telling us to get up and come look at the sun rise. Even though it was 5 something in the morning, I'm glad I got up because the sun rise was beautiful. I snapped a few pics, said goodnight to our chef, then went back to bed. A few hours later, I woke up to the noise of the sails going up, so I went outside, and we were off to our next island. Kenetha made us brunch, then we stopped at Smugglers Cove while they got provisions for dinner. We hung out on the beach for a bit while they shopped, then we set sail again for the next stop. We just went to the next bay over, but we were the only boat there, that meant we had then entire bay and beach to ourselves! Ryan took some of us out on the dinghy and we knee boarded and wake boarded. Then, the boys had to go to the beach and get a fire going because we asked to do a beach barbecue for dinner. Kenetha made prime rib, kabobs, and baked potatoes, and it was the most amazing beach picnic I have ever had. You would never guess that she cooked it all over a fire! After, we roasted marshmallows and made s'mores, then went back to the boat and laid out under the stars for a while. It was the perfect end to a perfect night.
Day 7: Jost Van Dyke
It's our last day in the BVIs and boy did we have a busy schedule. Our first stop was Sandy Spit Island, but it's better known as Corona Island. You know the commercial where they clink their beers together looking out to the ocean? Ya that's where we went:) The island was so small I walked around the whole thing in probably 5 minutes. Next, we stopped at a few bays at Jost Van Dyke and did some more bar hopping. The first one, White Bay, was home of the Soggy Dollar Bar who is known for their Pain Killers. At the next bar, Gertrude's, you tell her what drink you want, then she brings you the stuff to make it yourself. That way, you can make it how you like. We sat on the beach and people watched for a little bit, then swam back to the boat for lunch. After lunch, we moved to Great Harbor where we were going to stay the night. We went to the island to do some shopping, then came back to the boat and freshened up for dinner. We gave Kenetha the night off and took the crew out to eat at Foxy's (just another restaurant on the beach) When we went back to the boat, Kenetha had dessert for us, then she talked to Lauren and I about life and gave us a few words of wisdom. We honestly got so lucky because we had the best crew in the whole entire world; they made this trip a million times better, and I am definitely going to miss them and these islands.
