From Soggy to Bubbly
Yesterday Rebecca and I got a chance to do what we do best: play tour guide and entertain. After spending the night in Great Harbor on Jost Van Dyke, we moved the boat around to White Bay, her port of registry in the BVI. This reef-protected bay is an extremely popular cruising destination with numerous bars and restaurants lining the white sand beach. The most notable of these bars is the Soggy Dollar, named for the state of the money that one would have in his/her pocket after swimming to shore. We tested this out and sure enough, both the cash and the credit card were wet when we arrived. They didn’t seem to mind though.
After a nice lunch and a walk on the beach to see One Love’s namesake bar, we cast off the mooring lines and moved around to the other end of Jost Van Dyke to anchor by Little Jost Van Dyke. Once the boat was secure, we wasted little time in getting the tender in the water so that we could make our way to shore. Our destination? The Bubbly Pool. I have written about this special spot on a couple of occasions and it’s well worth the visit, especially when there is a bit of north swell running as there was yesterday.
