My Island!

Peter Island, BVI, November 18, 2007 - Is it really so odd to be online while on a beautiful tropical vacation at an awesome private-island resort? The computer room is in a beautiful glass-walled hut overlooking the pool, so it's really no different than sitting by the pool reading...

Yesterday morning was my first time ever windsurfing. The guy at the watersports hut gave me a couple minutes of pointers on the beach, then a couple more minutes of shouting instructions from the shore while I floundered around (it was harder on the legs than I expected), but I did eventually get some sort of idea of what to do. After a few hours, I was good enough at getting up, going around, turning around (not very gracefully), and going back, although not really ever to a place where I intended to go. But at least I didn't end up flying out-of-control across the channel to Virgin Gorda or Venezuela...

(Today I'm not even that sore, which might be due to my first-ever massage yesterday afternoon!)
