Virgin Gorda! Day 4

we woke up to another beautiful morning. it was the perfect day to spend some time in the water! 20111122-195818.jpg

all the “kids” (except me) went scuba-diving, so mom and i spent some time at the private beaches by our house.

i have been waiting for this all week…paddleboarding! it was the MOST beautiful scenery i have ever seen. being on the water, looking back at the beaches and the house was just so breathtaking…
