Jost Van Dyke

Untitled document

The New York Times has an article up today about Jost Van Dyke, one of the islands in the British Virgin Islands. Now the reason this caught my eye is that my family and I went there on a day trip when we were down in the US Virgin Islands for a week. It brought back memories. The article talks about several places we visited while we were there including the Soggy Dollar Bar and Foxy's. The Soggy Dollar swears they invented the Painkiller, a cocktail you find at just about every bar down there. Just about everybody swears they invented it, too. But the Soggy Dollar is a fun place and it is right on one of the prettiest beaches in the world.

Foxy's was closed when the writer of this piece was there, so he missed a real treat. The food there is fabulous as I recall and Foxy is worth making the trip for all by himself. We stopped there for lunch and Foxy provided the floor show. He dragged out a battered old guitar and entertained everyone with songs he made up on the spot. Or maybe the songs were well honed and he simply inserted the commentary on the people listening. Whatever, he was a great host.

Just a bit of a departure from the usual. I don't do much travel blogging after all.
