I also caught a rainbow...
Despite the clouds we were optimistic about today's new adventure on the Island of Tortola. The boys decided to stay back and hang on the ship while Mark, Diane and I headed out for a day of Island fun.
Once again we had decided to make our own excursion rather then rely on the Cruise's plans (added expense and more people.)
We found a taxi and a not nearly as nice as George; (our driver in St. Thomas) driver and asked him, what is the best beach? Smugglers Cove was the answer....although
the skies didn't make a day on the beach look so promising....
I'm not sure what kind of bird he was. I thought perhaps a pelican, but then I think they have larger necks.
As I watched him sail over the skies I noticed the clouds were moving in ....
These clouds did not keep the people away and soon own nearly private beach was overcome with people from the Cruise ship.
Back on flat port we enjoyed some music and checked out the small shops before returning to the ship.
The boys had patiently awaited the ropes course to open. (It was closed earlier due to the rain) and took their turn at it.
