Over the last two days, though, the North Coast of Tortola has seen surf bigger than anything remembered in the past five years.
Cane Garden Bay, seen from above has been transformed from its usual tranquil blue to a churned-up stormy green by the incoming waves. HB and I went to Josiah's Bay to check out the surf where it was likely to be largest.
The effect of the surf crashing into the wall was lovely.
Although I'm enjoying the difference in the motion of the ocean, I'm hoping the ground swell dies down fairly soon -- I miss swimming!
