The 312 Clematis Boat Drink Recipe from Bob at the Westin Grand Cayman

Drink Recipe Westin Grand Cayman

After one sip, you'll be knee deep in the waves of Seven Mile Beach. It's that time of day, time to soak in that cotton candy sky full of dazzling reds, purples and blues. The transition between day and night is always a special occasion and it should be celebrated--especially when watching from the beach. Your toes are buried in the soft white sand of Seven Mile Beach on Grand Cayman, the … [Read more...]

Ivan’s Beach Bar on Jost, Memories and Construction Progress

Ivans Beach Bar Jost

It's not good to live a life full of regrets. The past is the past, move on. But I do have one regret that became very clear a few weeks ago during a trip to Jost in the British Virgin Islands. Our flotilla of pirate castaways sailed into White Bay on Halloween. We grabbed a mooring ball on the quieter eastern side of the bay, the side where the much-talked-about Ivan's Beach Bar and Campground … [Read more...]

The B-Line Beach Bar and the Passion Confusion Drink

B Line Beach Bar Little Jost Van Dyke

"Hide the Cashmere, the bomber is focused in!" As soon as we grabbed the mooring ball near Diamond Cay, we had the dingy in the water and were motoring towards Little Jost Van Dyke and the B-Line Beach Bar. When Castaway Lorrie says go, we go. I aint arguing. The B-Line Beach Bar is the new kid on the block when it comes to British Virgin Island beach bars. Opening earlier this year (2014) … [Read more...]

Loblolly Beach, Anegada BVI: Island Lime Videos

Loblolly Beach Anegada

They say the best places to explore are ones that are hard to reach. I don't know who "they" are but I tend to agree. Anegada is the often over looked island in the British Virgin Islands. It's an odd ball. It sits about 15 miles north of Virgin Gorda, further than the other islands of the BVI and it's completely flat. All the other islands in the BVI have large rolling mountains that cascade … [Read more...]

The Baths of Virgin Gorda, BVI: Island Lime Videos

Baths of Virgin Gorda

The Baths of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands are a "pinch me" type of place. Large volcanic boulders cover the southern shoreline creating majestic caves and tidal pools. Last week was my first visit to this stunning landscape and it exceeded my expectations. It was a quick whirlwind tour, but it still left a powerful impression on this salty soul. You'll see some of that beauty in this … [Read more...]

Rum ‘N Pumpkin Ale: Boat Drinks Recipe

Fall Halloween Drink Recipe

After one sip, you'll almost enjoy the cold fall weather...almost. I've lived in southwest Florida for 13 years now. The swaying coconut palms still put a pirate's smile on my face. But after living here for so long I get asked by people if I miss the seasons from up north (Kansas City). My answer...not really. Sure we have seasons down here, we have the Wet Season, the Dry Season, Hurricane … [Read more...]
