Is there more than one area of this Island where ships dock? I was reading some info about the Baths on Tortola/ Virgin Gorda and wondered if this is where we would be. I also saw that they do dolphin swims and experiences on Tortola!!
Heather, I don't remember if I ever posted this one this thread or not ... sorry if it's a repeat. Back in 1996, I was lucky enough to sail the British Virgin Islands on chartered 2 catamarans with 15 other friends. The Baths was definitely memorable. I have some awesome pictures ... wish I could post some but this was pre-digital days & I don't have a scanner .

I must say that this vacation was probably my best vacation ever. Gotta love those bushwackers!!! Someone else mentioned painkillers, but we all got hooked on bushwackers.

Here was our itinerary.

Road Town, Tortola (boarded our cats for the week)
Sandy Spit
Great Harbor, Jost Van **** (the boards "bleeped" this one out)
Soper's Hole
Monkey Point
Cane Garden Bay, Tortola
Marina Cay
Bitter End
Virgin Gorda
The Baths
Cooper Island
snorkeled over the Wreck of The Rhone
The Caves, Norman Island
The Bight at Norman Island (William Thorton)

Add on Anegada, and a couple other Islands like the dogs & Peter Island.

Tortola, is one of the most beautiful places I have seen!!!

How are the crowds? It's spring break here in ATL metro. Traffic is really light so I figure everyone is in FL. Hope you're enjoying yourself.

Ang, Jenn and Peter...I"m glad to hear that you all enjoyed Tortola so much. I had never heard of it before.

Pretty In Tink..I'm glad you are enjoying Epcot!! have fun and enjoy the flower and garden festival!!


Wow...our spring break was March 17-21. Long time ago now...(or at least it feels that way...getting up at 6:30 am again is not fun!)

Our spring break is always the 1st full week in April. I don't like that it doesn't always coincide with Easter but I do like when it falls on the school calendar. The kids will only have 6 weeks of school left & 1 week of that is standardized testing.

Heather, try getting up at 5:00-5:30 AM every morning!!! Elementary schools start at 7:50. Kids start arriving at 7:20 to begin their day. Our kids are up at 6:00 AM every morning & out at the door at 7:10. That won't change during the summer either. Both Bruce & I work at companies that allow flex hours. My day is 7:00-4:00.

Ang the weather is beautiful and the crowds were light at Epcot yesterday. It was very nice! I took a ton of pictures. I got a little red even with sunscreen so that kind of stunk. Other than that it was a great mini trip!

Peter OOOOH! I see. Well T definitly doesn't need me driving her nuts too! lol

Hope everyone has a great day!

Angie...I am NOT a morning person (or a late night person either ) I used to have to be to work at 5:15 am so I could leave in time to pick up ds from kindergarden. I was lucky that they worked with me that year.

Ds school starts at 7:45 am..the bus gets here at 7am. (sometimes at 6:50 am or 7:10am...) I get ds up at 6:30 am, out of shower no later than 6:42..and downstairs, lunch made, breakfast made and meds taken and outside by 6:55am...and let the dog out somewhere in there. We have to rush most days...but we love our sleep too much!!

I used to have to get up that early at my last job..but since I"m not right now, I don't have to get up except my ds has issues getting up..the alarm blaring in his ear will not wake him up.

Brandon is going through his 2nd week of testing at school. But the good thing with that is 2 weeks of no homework!!

She's already there! No internet, cable or phone yesterday (except 4 hours) or all morning today. Ended up checking into a hotel this morning to get some work done for the internet and phone access I needed.

Cyndi, be glad you are going south - 80 is a mess around here with all the blowing snow and slick roads. I cancelled an appt this morning, because I did not want to have to drive. We are supposed to drive to Denver this afternoon, hope conditions are better by then!
