BVIs: Part 2

Sailing trip continued...

We successfully sailed to Jost Van Dyke on Day 2 of the trip where we had to check in at customs.  St Thomas and St John are both US Virgin Islands, the rest of our trip was spent in the British Virgin Islands so we had to make our presence known to the officials.

Jost Van Dyke was beautiful.

Customs was on the beach and very easy - really just paying a fee and getting our passports stamped. 
After checking in with went to Foxy's for lunch, a cute little outdoor restaurant famous for the delicious chicken roti and pain killer drinks.

We rode the dingy back to the boat where we took a dip in the water before cleaning up for dinner.

The next day we sailed on to explore around another small island, Guana then ended up at Marina Cay - a beautiful little island off the coast of Great Camanoe.  It was very small but had a general store, restaurant, small huts for rent, and a happy hour bar with live music.  We spent the whole day and night on Marina Cay and really had a great, relaxing time.

Looking for a mooring - you can see Marina Cay in the distance.

 We walked around the island (which didn't take long) and discovered the Happy Arr Bar on top of the hill

  Good music, great view, and delicious cocktails before dinner.

 We watched as the sun set then went down by the water for dinner.
