LOL for sure. Pay to ride ??? Make money ??? That must be a new concept that I had not heard of yet. LOL I don't mind a bit and am glad to share the fun. For some it is pretty special and even a once in a lifetime experience they will never forget. It's all good.

BBB, I don't think Jay saw your question so will answer on his behalf. That is the new Scrub Island Resort. It is just a mile or so north of Beef Island / Tortola airport. It was the first card stop and they were a major sponsor of the poker run. They dropped Jay of at the heliport and he rode with us the rest of the day. A gorgeous place but quite a departure from what you will normally see in BVI. You can pick up a 2 bedroom condo for just $ 2.5 mil LOL.

Default Peter Island, BVI

This mornings scenery pics are from Peter Island. Peter Island has to be one of the best if not the best in the BVI. Later in the day I will post some more fun pics. Surely some others have some pics they would like to post ?? I'm sure I'm not the only one to visit the islands with a camera. Lets see your stuff !
Bob

For those of us not as fortunate to be able to island hop, may I ask why you feel so strongly about Peter Island? Obviously I have not been there...

Thanks. Actually the closest Bahamian Island is Bimini and does not show on your map. Bimini is only 55 miles from a point half way between Miami and Ft Lauderdale. Good launch point is Haulover Park. Good ramp and trailer storage there. The new Bimini Bay Resort is absolutely gorgeous and worth visiting. From Bimini east for about 50 miles is the Bahama Bank. It is only about 8 to 15 ft deep and that beautiful aqua colored water. Really nice. Then from there another 50 mile deep water but somewhat protected crossing to Nassau.

Here are a few Bimini Bay Resort pics. Laptop goes where Bob goes. LOL Gotta stay connected.
