Prickly Pear Beach, BVI

Prickly Pear is a small island just off the coast of Antigua and just east of Virgin Gorda.  The island is uninhabited and a British National Park, and, most importantly to us, contains Vixen Point, another wonderful white sand beach with clear turquoise water (we're starting to get the theme)?

The beach is set up for a barbeque, with chairs and beach toys for all of us.

Other boats pull in, one collection of rental catamarans all tie themselves together, and come ashore for lunch or a drink.

Catamaran convention

 What a great way to end our trip, followed by an early departure as we head back toward San Juan.  As we cruise out, the captain tells us that the yacht we are passing rents for $450,000 per week, not including fuel and port charges.  Must be nice!

We arrive in San Juan, head to the airport, and return home to start thinking about the next adventure.
