So how did we end up on this kind of trip anyway? Over the past couple of years Kyle's dad has been working on getting his captain's license, and once our schedules finally lined up he decided to charter a boat and take us on a 10-day sailing trip in the British Virgin Islands. We certainly weren't going to say no to that! Tell us when and where and we'll be there! Altogether there were 8 of us on the boat, which included Kyle and me, Kyle's mom and dad, Kyle's sister Jenny and her boyfriend Zach, and some family friends of the Fentons, Fred and Christina. We sure were a motley crew if you've ever seen one! But before I get ahead of myself, here's how Day 1 of the trip went down.
On Wednesday, May 9, we had a direct flight from Atlanta to St. Thomas, which is in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Once we landed in St. Thomas, we deplaned by walking down a set of stairs onto the runway. We did this when we went to Jamaica for our honeymoon too and it kinda makes me feel like the President. It's the little things!
Up next: our venture into Road Town and we finally get on the sailboat!
