Cruise-Tortolla/Virgin Gorda B.V.I.

Our next stop was Tortolla, we didn't have anything planned, we asked around and heard that the thing to do was to take the ferry over to Virgin Gorda and go see the Baths.  So...that's what we did!  We also heard that you needed to go early!!  We got in at 7am, we were one of the first groups off and on our way!  
This is walking up to the ferry station!  We actually wound up finding a guy that was cheaper to take us over and that's what we did!!
 Pulling up to the "Baths"!!  So it's believed that the baths were created thousands of years ago when a volcano about 30 miles away blew and shot these big boulders up in the air and they landed over here on Virgin Gorda and piled on each other like this.
 Hiking to the beach!
 So Awesome!!  We didn't really know what to expect on the hike and we wound up having to hike through these boulders, at some points only one person could go through at a time.  It was so pretty  and really an awesome experience.

 This is what we ended at!  Awesome! We were the only ones there on the beach!!  
 We had just taken some pictures for my sister right here in front of this rock, we took a couple pictures and then right smack in the middle of cheese...awesome!!!!
 The group that went girls had taken a nap on the beach while the boys went and hiked around and swam, when we woke up there were TONS of people!  Seriously, we fell asleep as the only ones there and woke up with people everywhere!!  It was crazy.  We then started the hike back, and those spots where only one person could get through at a time...there was a line through the whole little hike of people trying to get through.  It was madness!  But, we made it through pretty quick!!
Leaving Tortolla.
3rd deck nap...the best!! 

 That night there was a party on the top deck...

 Midnight Buffet that night!!  And the ice sculpture was an Indian head!!  So fitting for Steve!! (HS mascot!)
