Default Gone Fishin‚??...and Hikin‚??: Day 3

Day 3: Sail to Spanish Town Marina, Virgin Gorda

What a full day in Virgin Gorda! We briefly broke away early from our flotilla this morning for a quick one hour sail over to Spanish Town Marinas in Virgin Gorda. Upon arriving, half of the group popped some Dramamine and prepared themselves for a 3 hour deep sea fishing expedition on ‚??Big Ting‚??! While they were out making their next big catch, the rest of us took a taxi over to a hilltop entrance of The Baths for a brief hike. The Baths and Caves are home to a unique rock formation with a myriad of secret pools and caves to hike, swim and snorkel. What an amazing place ‚?? a must-see for anyone visiting the British Virgin Islands!

After a few hours, my group returned to find our better half posing with three large fish, ranging from 20 to 40 pounds, called ‚??wahoo‚??!! Naturally we were jealous, so we were ready to give it a shot as well. After a long two hour wait, we finally got two bites and reeled in one decently sized barracuda (which we later threw back) and a 27 pound¬*wahoo for ourselves!

After a long day on both water and land, our entire flotilla took a shuttle to dinner at the Rock Caf√©, an Italian/Caribbean fusion restaurant, then headed back to the marina for a much needed restful night‚??s sleep.
