British Virgin Islands--Tortola & Virgin Gorda

We've spent the last ten days here in the British Virgin Islands helping a branch. We were trying to set up an apartment for a senior couple to live in Tortola. We went by ferry over to Virgin Gorda three days and tried to meet the members there and went with the Branch President to have sacrament both Sundays in the afternoon. The weather has been delightful. The people are very friendly. They speak English and of course drive on the "wrong" side of the street according to us. It is very hilly with steep, winding, narrow roads. It really takes the 4wheel drive to get into the apartment. Turning around is quite a chore These pictures show the view coming into Tortola Harbor. The only level space seems to be by the harbor and the short airstrip.

Virgin Gorda view.

We had lunch in Virgin Gorda and you can see Tortola in the background.

These two pictures are from our apartment. You can see a cruise ship in port.
