First things first, I had to use ^^that^^ as the title of this blog post. I mean, obviously. It’s a classic. ;))
Now, can we please talk about how insanely gorgeous Anegada is?!
It’s seriously picture perfect.
Ever since we sailed away from the Bahamas, I have been missing ^^these^^ long stretches of pristine white sandy goodness that pretty much consume nearly all of the bahamian islands. Here in the Virgin Islands, you’re more likely than not to find a rocky beach wherever you go. Which, let’s not lie, is totally great for sea glass hunting, but a sandy beach will always be my first choice for sure.
But in Anegada, it’s all one big perfect sandy beach!
This pretty coral island is literally a 15 square mile stretch of perfection! Just the way I like it. Oliver too. He went crazy the minute we landed the dink on this shoreline, tearing up and down the beach like a rabid kangaroo. It’s quite hilarious to watch, I must admit.
Since we had Jer’s cousin Lindsay and her hubby Keith on board with us for the week (all the way from cold Canada), we decided it was definitely worth the trip over to see pretty Anegada while they were with us. The sail from Bitter End, Virgin Gorda, BVI was nothing crazy, although Active Captain comments (from mostly charter vacationers) are hilarious and would have you thinking otherwise.
After a quick two-hour sail, we opted for the path less traveled and dropped hook at the western most anchorage on the charts. Ninety-nine percent of the other boats that had sailed over to Anegada were parked a mile or two down in the more popular (read crowded) mooring-lined anchorage. Needless to say, we found the beach seclusion down a ways to be much nicer; however, the wet dinghy ride over to the restaurants was a little poopy. We literally got soaked on our ride to dinner. Oh well, the price you pay.
