Bondi and Don Winstel Come a Callin’

IMG_0737

When dreaming of the perfect guests on board, you can’t get much better than Don and Bondi!

Frank and I managed to dock LIB only 3 hours before our guests arrived, which meant that we weren’t quite ready when the taxi man dropped Bondi and Don off.  But that didn’t deter these guys! Bondi immediately helped unload provisions and Don grabbed a brush and started swabbing the decks with Frank.  UNTIL – SCREECH!! Our sound guy, Don, noticed a problem with the speakers and that just couldn’t remain with our pro music man on LIB.

I wish I had a picture of the Winstel’s first hour on LIB; the bags were not even unpacked and Bondi was shuffling groceries in the galley while Don had the tool box out and was attacking the sound system.  HOW can guests get better than that?

Once the provisions were settled and the speakers were properly tuned, we were off to the usual BVI hot spots:

Sundowners, of course!

Bondi and Don, we are SO glad you came to share some time in BVI paradise.  Next time we will get our 4 missing musketeers there too!    We missed you Lisa, Dave, Iain and Jean!

Cow Wreck Beach

P1020040 This beautiful beach on Anegada has an ugly name: Cow Wreck. Cow Wreck earned its name long ago when a ship carrying cow bones, which were used to make buttons and other items, wrecked off this beach.  Legend says that for years afterwards, cow bones would wash up on shore, thus the name. P1020020 I have arrived at Cow Wreck Beach Bar by sea, as shown above. I have also arrived by land via rented scooters: P1020031 And once I arrived at Cow Wreck Bar, the seating was plentiful… P1020209 and the views were beautiful… P1020027 Regardless of how you get there, Cow Wreck Beach Bar is a fun place to land.
