    if the area that you explored was private no one was around, it would have been all birthday suit city.

    Wow, that does look like an adventure!!! How beautiful and interesting it all looks!!

    You look great...I completely agree, that color is great for you AND the trip!! :goodvibes I had to laugh at your bringing 5 bathing suits. :rotfl: Do you have even more that you didn't bring? I know every summer, I look and I'm like "I don't remember having this many...where did they all come from?" Then of course, by the end of summer, I probably have a few more!

    :laughing:

    Well I seem to get a new suit every year, I think it is due to living in Virgina Beach where I was in a suit nearly every day and thus they wore out quickly. It is programmed into me that I must get a new suit every summer! :laughing: Also I like to have variety so that I am sure to have something that I am in the mood to wear each day. I am the same way with my trip clothes, I always bring more than I need so that I have a variety to chose from. ;)

    Thank You! I wish I was there right now as well instead of sitting in front of my computer writing up an outline for my term paper. :headache:

    I get one every year too! And I don't even wear them as much as you do!! But I like the whole variety thing too!! I don't like the idea of being tied down to a different outfit each day...I'd probably pick one out two choices for a certain day and then get there and be wishing I had the other one!! (And of course, if they were both there...I'd probably picked the one I had thought about bringing by itself!)

    :rotfl: Well ever since moving back to Canada I hardly ever have use for my swimsuits, only when we go on vacation. For some reason though I keep buying new ones. :rotfl:

    Everybody always makes fun of me for how much clothing I pack. I usually pack as much as my mom and brothers combined! :lmao:

    Wow Lessa! The Baths looks really cool. We would enjoy a place like that. Great pics of the grotto. It does look like the perfect spot for pirates and hidden goodies.

    That's funny. What is it about summer time that makes you HAVE to buy a swimsuit regardless of how many you already have or how much you will be in it?

    That's hilarious about how much you pack!! I'm pretty sure I brought enough clothes for a 2 week stay when I was only there 6 nights!! :rotfl: Always be prepared right? :confused3

    It is definitely a great place to go if you want to go to the beach but also want to be active and explore.



    That's my philosophy! ;)

    Hi Lessa! I'm enjoying your TORTOLA pirate: pics! The bath area looks really interesting to explore - I can't wait to see what the beach actually looks like!

    :thumbsup2 I saw, that's great that you are no longer going solo.


    I loved exploring the little grottoes and "caves" created by the boulders, it was so much fun. :thumbsup2

    We continued to make our way through the rock formations taking everything in.

    This is one of the bridges that they had to help you cross the really tricky parts. As you can see it is pretty narrow so it was one-way traffic. If somebody else was crossing in the opposite direction you just had to step aside and wait for them to cross before you could start to cross.

    We came to a more open area where tons of tidal pools and coves were formed between all the rocks.

    I perched myself on a boulder overlooking one of the tidal pools and watched all the colourful fish swim around. The water was so clear that we could see them perfectly. Here are some pictures I took of the fish while I sat watching them from my seat.

    I also went down into the water to get a closer look at the fish.

    We stayed at the tidal pools for quite a while. We eventually decided to move on as we still had to make it to Devil's Bay.

    Well lucky us not even five minutes later we were exiting "the caves' and seeing our first sight of Devil's Bay.
