Stroll on Virgin Gorda

Every time we stop at Bitter End on Virgin Gorda, I take this hike and post beautiful pictures to the Let It Be Facebook page.  I thought I would show you a bit about the hike itself:

The initial and steepest assent is a driveway that leads to the actual hiking path.  While the “path” is easy to see, it isn’t exactly easy terrain:

                                  Fortunately all of the boulders are deeply embedded.

The climb is steep and usually pretty hot but it leads to fabulous views like this one:

And some unique foliage:

This tree bark looks like pieces of orange tissue paper.

The walk does have some easy sections that are also shaded:

Plus the backside offers a bird’s eye view of Deep Bay:

However, this time, my favorite part of the walk was the pictures I was able to take of Frank while he was kiteboarding!

The water is so clear and the bottom so well defined, it almost looks like he begins on gravel.

Can you imagine how fun it is to ride across this crystal clear water?

 

Looking East at Sunset

Sunset on Cam Bay of Great Caminoe was behind the hills, but facing east we were treated to this beautiful reflection in the eastern sky.

Serenity? Tranquillity? Namaste?

Serenity?  Tranquillity?  Namaste?

Beginning or ending a day with views like these – no wonder so many boats have names like those listed in this title. Can you feel your pulse settle when you look at this picture? I think that anyone who loves water, sailing or fishing owns a soul that thirsts for scenes like this one.

Our next visit to LIB is only days away and it can’t come soon enough. The pace these last few months has been so hectic that even sleep is restless and dreams seem to include “To Do” lists.

I long for the rhythm, sounds and views of this other home.

I hope this photo brought you at least one calming breath.
