Putting in Some BVI Time
“Liming: socializing; hanging out; just being in a group. How any Caribbean aspires to spend their time.”
We did a quick tour-de-BVIs with Bill before he left for St. Thomas and his flight back home. Not a lot of pics – not sure why.
Bill, our number one crew (in the non-electronic category), just after the Captain threw his bags off the boat – getting ready to load up on the Soper’s Hole, BVI to St. Thomas, USVI ferry run. Heading home. It was fun, Bill!!
We did stop at the Botanical Gardens in Road Town, Tortola, where they have free range turtles and side-kick cats.
Along with caged orchids.
We did get in some snorkeling. It’s not Bahamas quality snorkeling, but it is sure nice to get back in the water.

We’re now back in North Sound, Virgin Gorda, on a Bitter End Yacht Club mooring. We’ll stay here through US Thanksgiving. We scored a Butterball while in Soper’s Hole where we dropped Bill off. Looks like we have 4 boats getting together for T-day. Fortunately Baxter and Molly on Terrapin are vegans – that should make the bird go a little further. Although I gotta say I’m a little worried about my mashed potatoes.
For any of you who are over 50, there’s a great article in USA Today – I know, they aren’t known for being the pinnacle of journalism. This article looks at the USA moments before JFK was shot. Brings up lots of memories. I was in Mrs. Howath’s 6th grade class. We had a mutual dislike for each other. She hated my penmanship and precocious responses to the questions she posed in class. I just couldn’t deal with this tall, boxy women telling me to do dumb things – and picking on my script. They didn’t tell us why, but they sent us home early that day.
