This is all of us at Duffy's Love Shack the first night.


Beautiful Coki Beach, great snorkeling.


The Indians, good snorkeling, fast current.

This is a dig that Syracuse University students are doing on your way up to Blackbeards. Originally owned by the Magen

Family ?a=4" alt="" />

Notice the name of the boat above the head of our friend Larry....not staged and he's a really good guy. This was at Foxy's on Jost Van Dyke.

Marina of the most beautiful places I've seen. Water is the color of a pool.

The Soggy Dollar Bar. You jump off the boat and swim to shore, hence the name Soggy Dollar.

The view from Mountaintop and Magens Bay below. Other Islands in the background. Beautiful view!

This is the sunset view from our villa. It was gorgeous every night.

This is another view from our Villa. There were people actually camped out over on that island and they had a boat to take them to shore.

Nice Pics! I have never seen Soggy Dollar, can you believe it? Quite busy!
Laughed at the name of the boat above Larry's head! Too Funny!
My fault, I know, but I didn't even know that dig was taking place! What are they finding?

Problem with "getting back" is going to be the unavailability of, and exhorbitant price of, the plane trip. Watch tourism on these Islands drop by about 60-70%. Unless something is done about the ridiculous oil prices there is no relief in sight. A "trickle down" effect if you will. Permeates all aspects of our society. With tourism substantially down, so goes the economy of the Islands, real estate prices will crash and poverty will greatly increase. Most people are in denial, like ostriches with their heads in the sand. Difficult to swallow, but oh so clear.

Wow ocean, pretty depressing. Understand what you're saying, but I'm looking foward to better days.

Well, there's always that bridge from Florida that somebody asked about in another thread a couple weeks ago.

Nice pics. Can't wait to be there, just over a week to go!
