So much of how I experience the BVI is through animals: roadcows, goats, stray dogs, lizards, insects. I've been refraining from constantly populating these pages with photos of all the animals I encounter, as I'm sure folks moving to Tortola have more pressing questions than what the goats on the hillside near Bananakeet look like.
Nonetheless, this is my blog, after all, and lately I find my attention absorbed by creatures. So for the time being, I am going to express my enthusiasm for Tortola's non-human inhabitants by having a weekly creature feature on Sundays.
This week, I'm featuring those self-same Bananakeet-adjacent goats, who I see nearly every day as I traverse the five switchbacks climbing out of Carrot Bay towards the Ridge Road.
