SVI trip report and video

Here's an 'article' (I'm not a writer) and video (also not a videographer) of a week in the Spanish Virgin Islands. The write-up is campy, I know, but still fun. I spent nearly the entire last week working on the video, I started with more than 500 clips. Anyway, thanks to those who shared local knowledge, I really appreciate it, and we had a great time. Unfortunately we won't be going back. Two of us lost appendages to un-exploded ordinance, the only beer they have is Medalla, and don't let the video fool you, it was a terrible trip.

We did what is seems to be the 'standard' trip out of Fajardo for a week.

Day 1: Cayo Icacos and Isla Palominos
Day 2: Culebra, Tamarindo Grande
Day 3,4: Culebrita, Bahia Tortuga
Day 5: Vieques, Bahia del la Chiva
Day 6: Vieques, Esperanza
Day 7: Vieques, Green Beach (Punta Arenas)

I need another week to check out some of the places we had to skip!

Wow, that seems like a lot of sailing compared to BVIs or other Carribean destinations. And I mean that in a good way...

The turtles and the sunken sailboat were cool.

That's part of why I wanted to go there, plus fewer crowds, or so I hear because I've never been to the BVI's...the sailing was great though.
