ABC WEDNESDAY


Well what the F?!! It's time for ABC Wednesday again. As I am feeling fed-up, frozen, funky and very full of February I decided instead of doing a F is for Frigid or Frozen or F***ing Cold I would look on the bright side and dredge up some warm memories. So this weeks ABC is F is for Fantasy! As you may have guessed, my fantasy is as far away from here as possible right now and what better than my favorite spot in the British Virgin Islands?


This is a view from the plane flying into Tortola, the largest and most populated of the BVI's. As soon as you get off the plane a wonderful warmth pervades your body and suddenly your shoulders drop an inch and everything starts to move at a slightly slower place - just heavenly. From Tortola you take a little boat to the island, Guana Island, a tiny little speck covered in trees and bordered with beautiful beaches. The manager of the only accommodation on the island drives down to meet the boat in a golf cart and takes you up to the lodge at the top of the hill, which, of course has a fabulous view.


After checking in you are shown to your room and left to relax..........


And from then on the only really hard decision to make is which beach to walk to each day!


Actually no, that is not the hardest thing, the hardest thing is having to leave at the end of your trip, that is truly tough!

I think I don't like you very much: posting such gorgeous pictures while it's extremely dreary where I am at the moment!
I'll have to fantasize a bit more now...

Aaaaah ... that does look nice!!

I love the way the chairs are arranged to look out at the view, instead of at the TV, as they are in so many places.

Looks hazy - is it often like that?
