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...

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!)
