Comment of the week: “We caught lobsters!”🦀

BVI (British Virgin Islands) – we just love it here! It’s so easy to cruise around, do some island hopping, explore and just enjoy all the fun things you can do in the water.

And what do we do in the deep blue? Here are some of the fun things we like to do in the water!

🏊‍♀️Swimming: The kids can do it for hours! And they are inventing new games whenever needed. And yes, of course it’s so much easier to be in the water for hours when the water temperature never goes below 26.

🤿Snorkeling: In almost every bay there is a good spot for snorkeling. For example one of the snorkeling expeditions this week was The Caves at Treasure Point at Norman Island.

🏄‍♀️Paddleboards: Put all the paddleboards together and then you have a perfect platform for even more water games.

🦈Diving: Unfortunately Alma hasn’t been able to dive again after she got her dive certificate. We are trying to book dives for her here in the BVI. But this week Jonas did one dive together with friends at the Indians, Pelican Island.

🌊Free diving and catching lobster: Anegada is world famous for their big lobsters. And YES! A bunch of kids and adults caught several really big ones. And if that wasn’t enough, what do you do with lobster here? Of course you have a bonfire and barbecue them. Thank you so much Dragonfly for that!

🦋Wing foiling: Jonas keeps on practicing wherever the water and wind are in favorable conditions. Unfortunately many of the bays that are great for anchoring aren’t perfect for winging. But if the water is flat you can always practice foiling behind the dinghy.

🌴Exploring: One of this week’s highlights was exploring the Baths in Virgin Gorda. The Baths are characterized as an unusual formation of large granite boulders. Where the sea washes in between the huge rocks, large pools have been created. The kids couldn’t get enough, they had so much fun.

⛵️Sailing: Oups, almost forgot sailing. Here in the BVI we have had some nice legs of sailing with no waves and perfect conditions. Let’s hope that continues.

Next week – starting to feel lika a broke record, but yes, we are just gonna continue to explore the BVI.
