Friday, Island Root celebrated with Keith Walter and Ronda Violette, newlyweds from North Carolina on their honeymoon. Ronda and Keith were staying at the Ritz Carlton on St Thomas, and I picked them up beachside for a day of BVI exploration. First stop after customs was the Caves on Norman Island.
This was also Ronda’s first snorkel experience. She took to it like a duck, but she thought the fish a little pushy. They probably wanted her to feed them.
We took a quick tour around the Willie T. and Pirates Bight (too early too eat) and then cruised downwind for lunch at the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost van Dyke.
After sunning, swimming, more sunning, lunch and painkillers, Ronda pronounced charter boating much more fun than camping.
I think she’ll be back to the Virgin Islands. Keith too.
Back to the Ritz, they prepared for a boat ride to ZoZo’s Ristorante on St John for elegant food and delicious desserts. That’s starting the marriage off right.
