Puerto Rico – otherwise known as the Spanish Virgins.
USVI – United States Virgin Islands (St. Thomas, St. John, St. Croix)
BVI – British Virgin Islands (Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Anegada and Virgin Gorda + many smaller islands)
So, we have traveled now to all 3 sets of Virgins – each with their unique culture, unique gifts to offer the sailing tourist. Puerto Rico was a welcome change from being away from the US – we once again got to use our US based cell phone and it was easier to keep in touch with all our friends and family. We were able to reprovision in the US (not having to worry about duty) and find much desired grocery items in stock and at reasonable prices. We were able to have our mail ‘shipped’ to us – to review – imagine NOT getting mail on a regular basis…hmmm….pretty good thought, huh? NO bills, no junk mail (but NO anything else that we take for granted either) – no ordering online and just having something shipped. So much part of the US, yet still ‘feels’ like a different country. Spanish is the language of the island and to get along, you really must speak Spanish – Ron and I need to brush up (a/k/a LEARN Spanish). We wish our 14 day visit to Puerto Rico had not been such a rainy one – but it rained everyone of those days – most days for the complete day.
USVI – St. Thomas – a welcome (and sunny) change from Puerto Rico. Really, not PR’s fault but 14 days of rain is just too much for a couple from sunny Florida! So St. Thomas offered a wonderful respite from the rain. A couple of days anchored off the coast of Charlotte Amalie (right beside the cruise ships) gave us access to the city whenever we needed it. We loved the duty free liquor and were able to refill the bar on board 🙂

We have many plans for BVI and will update our story along the way.
Our US based phone is no longer working….please call us on our skype phone 727 498 0132 or our satellite phone 254 871 3257 or of course, you can email us – we would love to hear from all of you.
