60th Birthday BVI Trip

Am finally getting this posted!

A week before my 60th birthday, John whisked me away for four days at one of my favorite spots in the world...White Bay on Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. It's a beautiful bay with a white sand beach that looks out on the BVI as well as St. John and St. Thomas. We stayed at the Sandcastle which is rigt on the beach and has about 6 cabanas. Oh, and did I mention they have a famous drink called the Pain Killer at their famous Soggy Dollar Bar?

It was just a beautiful week. I'll let the photos speak for themselves.

Heading over on the ferry to Jost Van Dyke. A flight change caused us to miss our connection that would have gotten us to the beach for the sunset, so we settled for seeing it off the ferry.

This was our cabana just off the beach.

After a nice dinner and drink at the open air bar, we went to sleep to the sound of the surf. We got up early the next morning and took a morning walk on the beach.
