Cruise Day 1 -- British Virgin Islands

Okay, technically, Day 1 was San Juan, but we've "been there, done that" already...

As you may recall, we were on the cruise (Celebrity Millennium) with our friends Joce and Rob from the neighbourhood. To avoid confusion (or thinking I'm talking about myself in the third person, I am me, and Joce (our friend) is Joce Z. Clear enough?

Day 1 - British Virgin Islands (Tortola and Virgin Gorda)

So we arrived in Road Town the morning of March 27.

After quickly saying good-bye to Rob at the ship (he went diving), Rich, Joce Z. and I, and our snorkel gear headed down to the dock to catch a ferry to Virgin Gorda. Our destination? The famous "Baths" of Virgin Gorda.

We managed to hook up with Egbert on the docks who is a private boat operator running tourists back and forth from Tortola to the Valley (our landing point in V.G.). For $35 each, we got there and back, and Rich had all the rum punch he could handle (note: do not let Rich EVER try to keep up in the rum punch department with a former professional football player. Geesh!)

Anyhow, after a lovely 30 minute boat ride, we arrived in V.G., boarded a transfer trolley and shortly found ourselves walking the Baths. Words do not do this area justice ... the area is beautiful and the snorkelling was awesome. The pictures speak for themselves.
