Back to the Land of the Living...

So we made it back safely to the U.S.  Which means back to the land of busy schedules, chores, and constant Internet access.  I hope to catch up with the posts in the next couple of days.  It gets a little tricky/time consuming when you work with two cameras.  I took time last night to insure that I have all of the pictures from one camera saved to the computer.  Tonight I hope to move the remaining pictures from the smaller camera.  I am also patiently waiting for the pictures that Jorge took on the Little Boat Sailing adventure that we took.  That was a great trip...after I completely lost it on the trip leaving the Reef.  I was so embarrassed!  I do not have strong sea legs yet!

A Worldwind 5 Days

This has been an amazing five days!  We started out early in Memphis on Friday morning, three flights later, and one crazy taxi ride later we were sitting down to dinner at the Bananakeet.  So thankful that they made us a late reservation.  It was amazing.

We had the Crab Sushi as an appetizer, Jason had their Seafood Pasta, and I had the Coconut Rum Shrimp.  It was a wonderful meal.  Christina at The Heritage Inn was a wonderful host.  She grew up on Jost Van Dyke so she helped us in making some last minute arrangements. 

This was the view of Jost Van Dyke from our room at The Heritage Inn.

A view of Tortola from our room.

More views from the room.

I love the pool and bar combination.

Smyrna was kind enough to take us to the Ferry and then she came and picked us up on Monday to take us to the Airport.  She even played some classic Country Music!

Waiting on the Ferry to Jost.

Loading the Ferry (lots of beer)!

And we are off to Jost!

Being with out Internet service has caused a backlog of pictures and post to put up.  So needless to say I am a few days behind!

2012 Caribbean Trip So Far...

We have been having a blast!  Tortola was an eventful stay, Christina at the Heritage Inn was full of lots of advice for us for our time on Jost Van Dyke.  She helped us arrange a ride to get a few items, a ride to the Ferry, a ride at the Ferry once we got to Jost, and a rental car.  We made it through security twice with no problems (the TSA Blog is a wonderful tool), the flights were all on time, they even showed a great movie to make the flight time go faster while flying to San Juan (This Means War is a cute movie)...more to come later...Jason wants a beer!
