Ok, and now for a few trip photos and not just long rants exposing how much of an old iritated woman I am.

First of all, as far as pictures go, no they are not THAT beautiful... it's a beautiful place, but it's hot and wet and sandy and we were relaxing so there was no hauling around of the Canon... plus which the Canon desperatley needs to be cleaned. Instead you are subjected to crappy fuji point and shoot pictures... but since no one really loves to see all that many vacation photos of others, somehow i'm sure you'll survive.

This is the beach directly outside (about 30 feet outside)
our room... soooo beautiful. And yes, a Corona commerical
in the making.

John at Smuggler's Cove on our first day. Pretty
Good snorkeling.... ridiculously clear water.

Our 'three' shadows on Cane Garden Bay Beach.

The view on our drive - this is Cane Garden Bay
Beach on Tortola.

Hard to have tension just looking at this pic...

We took a day sail charter and went out to a
couple different islands, did some snorkeling,
saw 'the baths' and hung out on the boat.

Snorkeling by Cooper Island.

From the beach at Cooper Island... our boat is just beyond
that palm leaf.

Going for the water... gotta keep hydrated.

Always the most flattering pic you can take.

Oh, I loved the ridiculous Fuji point and shoot pictures you photo snob! You look great too by the way!

Oh that looks like heaven! The snorkeling was seriously making me jealous. I've only snorkeled once when I went to Hawaii, but I still like to tell people it's one of my favorite hobbies. :) I'm glad you guys had so much fun. You deserved a relaxing vacation! (And what a trooper you are to do all of that while pregnant! I told my husband I'm ready to move into the sit on the couch and eat bon-bon phase.)

Oh Nat, going snorkeling is EXACTLY what you should do as you get more pregnant.... all that floating around in water made for the first time my hips haven't hurt in AGES. Felt fantastic!

First of all, you suck. Second, I cannot stop laughing about your airport story. It kind of reminded me of how you used to yell out "stop making a scene". Seriously, I'm glad you had such a good time.
