|The signature softdrink of the Caribbean|
Back in July, I was sitting at home on my computer, just returned from 16 days in Anguilla and feeling morose because western Massachusetts most patently was not Anguilla. Anybody who has ever suffered from DIF (Dreaded Island Fever) knows what I mean. Really, the only thing that cures it is planning another trip, so that's exactly what I did. My husband and I usually go away for a long weekend in the Caribbean in October over his fall break (he teaches at a local college), and for the last few years it has been our pattern to travel with family and/or friends during that period.

Stay tuned for all Virgin Gorda, all the time as we re-learn this island and fall in love with it all over again. We had a long travel day to get here, but a relatively easy one for all that. We left our hotel at 4:30 am, and by 2:00 pm we'd landed in St. Thomas. Three hours later we were on Speedy's ferry to Virgin Gorda, and by 8:00 pm we were unpacking at Euphoria Villa, as lovely a place as I've ever stayed.
