“I say, that mooring is taken!”
We were about to pick up a mooring ball in one of our favorite spots in the BVI, ‘Cane Garden Bay’. On the north coast of Tortola, it features a very fine beach in a pleasant village setting surrounded by high hills. It’s a great place to spend a few days, beaching, swimming and generally ‘hanging out’. We had made an early departure from Jost Van Dyke. Foxy’s, and the red-lipped swooner, drooling over the crooner were behind us, together with the loud verbal bric a brac and guffawing reverberating into the late tropical night had ‘filled our cup’, so to speak. It was time to move on, chill out, and Cane Garden Bay was just the place!
On the way, we had stopped at the delightful islet of Sandy Cay, a little ‘desert isle’, the size of a football pitch. With the token central palm tree surrounded by a sprinkling of bush and a beach of powdered coral, it is pure ‘castaway’ material. We anchored in its lee, loaded up the dinghy, went ashore and spent most of the day there, swimming, snorkeling, snacking, sunning, and daydreaming!
