Default An afternoon with OSO Expat exploring Anegada, BVI

It was OSO Expat who first interested me in the BVI two years ago with his postings here on OSO. Some will remember Team PREDATOR going down and doing the Leverick Bay, BVI poker run in May of this year. Since then David ( Expat ) and Chrissann have become great friends and invited me back to the islands. I had a bit of a hole in my fun schedule, so I flew back down on the 15th and will leave tomorrow afternoon the 20th to go back north. Thank you for your hospitality this last several days, David and Chrissann. For a few days now we have been running around familiar places in the BVI in his Tiger and today the seas settled down enough for us to make the trip out to Anegada. That was pretty special. Much of the BVI is volcanic and most have seen Jay and my pictures of the picturesque mountains rising out of the sea. Anegada is different and is more like what you would see in the Bahamas. The island is low lying and made up of coral and sand. David, Chrissann and I enjoyed exploring the island and an unbelievable lunch of fresh lobster on the beach today. Enjoy the pics taken with my Lumix point and shoot since I wanted to travel light and left my Canon at home.

The return to Saba Rock. There was a 29 Fountain, 36 Spectre and a 40 Hustler at Saba Rock when we got back. Locals out of Road Town, Tortola.

End of a great day and another memorable boating experience. Thank you, David.

You're killing me.

Did you play the ring game at Cow Wreck?

Is the Mercury outboard display still at Saba?

There is nowhere I would rather be that running between islands in the BVI's......
