Let’s Sail the BVIs

From May 25 to June 3 this year, I sailed through the British Virgin Islands with my family. It was one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever laid eyes on. Traveling along on the 47 foot catamaran, we exited Tortola and sailed on to Peter Island, Cooper Island, Virgin Gorda, Necker Island, Anegada, Guana Island, finally finishing off in Jost Van Dyke, and returned to Tortola to fly back into Logan Airport. For those of you who want an idea of what that trip looked like, you can trace it out here (hint: start in the middle and move right, then loop back again). I can’t figure out why I haven’t posted about this yet, but I will write more on it soon. For now, I’ll upload some shots before heading off to bed.

Captain Maurizio!

Daniel filled our tank

This man’s name is Daniel. He filled our tank with gas before setting out on the trip. We chatted as I sipped on a painkiller and I found out he’s lived on Tortola his whole life. He asked me if I liked it there, and when I replied of course he offered to let me stay with him forever. How sweet an offer, but I had to decline!

storm

On the first day out on the water, we sailed by this storm. I thought it was absolutely beautiful the way it powerfully engulfed half of the mountains on the horizon. Stunning.

Hope you enjoy the view as much as I do!
