West End
The pretty pastel buildings in West End, Tortola (also known as Sopers Hole).

The little church at Great Harbour, Jost van Dyke.

The world famous (if you are a sailor) Foxy's bar and restaurant, also in Great Harbour.

The main seafront road (!!) in Jost van Dyke, leading from Foxy's.

Here I am on the beach by Foxy's. No shoe is too loud.

A monster Great Blue Heron on the dock at Jost van Dyke.

Benares Bay
The south east corner of Benares Bay, Norman Island. There is nothing in the bay except good snorkelling and easy diving. Many of the BVI anchorages have been filled with mooring buoys and if you stay on one overnight it costs an extortionate USD 25. Benares has no buoys and is a great place to hang out.

Dive boat
The dive boat we went on to dive the RMS Rhone wreck.

Rainbow taken at Cooper Island.

Cooper Island
The restaurant at Cooper Island.

Marina Cay
Marina Cay.

Fuel dock
The fuel dock at Marina Cay with a red telephone box. Perhaps the prettiest setting for a fuel dock in the world? Pelicans fish where the dinghies are tied up.

Marina Cay reef
This was the view to the east south east from where we were parked in Marina Cay. With three colours of blue water (two inside the fringing reef) and the blue sky it was stunningly pretty.

Close encounter
The close encounter with the cruise ship. Taken with a wide angle lens the ship is much closer than it looks.

A much more pleasant close encounter, the lovely little gaff rigged ketch Pluto. With jib, main, topsail and mizzen already set the skipper is on the foredeck putting up the staysail.
