Happy Tax Day 2015

Okay, so there isn’t much happy about April 15th in the U.S., so I thought I would just post a few pretty pictures to brighten your day.  Tomorrow will be here soon and you will have another 364 days to forget about whatever preparations you had to do to meet today’s deadlines.  Hope these turn your thoughts to more pleasant things…

Day’s end at last.

Nothing weighty here today. Just a wish that your April 15th isn’t too taxing. 🙂

LIB Overtaken by Women

I spent the last 9 days aboard LIB with a few good friends.  Although we received several comments about an “all female” crew, LIB was in excellent hands and we put her through her paces, hitting 9.2 knots a couple of days during our sails.

With so many women on board, the camera was quite busy catching beautiful views:

And silly celebrations:

Three birthdays…we aren’t sharing our ages!

We snorkeled or paddle boarded every day but the afternoons were reserved for relaxing on the trampoline:

Moored at Anegada

We rented scooters from Stephanie on Anegada and created our own tour of the Island. It was lots of fun and I recommend you try it on your next visit.

The sail from Anegada to the Scrub Island Resort was fabulous and actually went much too quickly.  According to the GPS, we travelled about 14nm but since we were hitting 9kn, our sail seemed really short.  Allas, we had to spend extra time at this beautiful resort, swimming in the 2 tiered pool, sliding down the water slide and swimming up to the pool bar:

Scrub Island Resort from our slip

Last year, my crew missed White Bay and the Soggy Dollar, so we knocked that off the bucket list and managed to snag a beautiful photo:

I guess the BVIs were as sad to see us leave as we were to go because our final day was the only one on which we saw rain while sailing. Here is a picture we took as we sailed back to Road Town on our last afternoon:

It is always great to be home, but I already miss the beauty and pace of the islands, and I know I am not the only person willing to go straight back to Let It Be.
