When Sunday came around, we were a little sad to know it would be our last day on the beach because our flight was at 7:20 the next morning. Sunday morning, we slept late again, read some, and went to Myett's office to check-out of the cottages (they don't open the office until 9 am the next morning, by which time we should be long gone, so we wanted to get checked-out in advance. We also scheduled to have a taxi pick us up at 5:15 Monday morning.
An interesting note about the Beef Island airport: It doesn't open until 6 am, so despite the fact that American Airlines insists that even in the BVI, you should arrive 2 hours before your international flight, that would be silly in Tortola if your flight is before 8 am. We were glad we checked with the office staff on when we should get the taxi because otherwise, we'd have been waiting outside the airport in the morning.
We were running low on cash by day 7, so we found the local ATM and stocked up. Then we spent a little of that cash at the gift shop at Myett's.

For dinner, we went to Big Banana Paradise Cafe. John was attracted by the Lime Seared Mahi Mahi, and I got the Caribbean Chicken. We asked for desert options and the only thing they had was Key Lime Pie, so we had Key Lime Pie for a second day in a row.

|We asked someone on the beach to take this shot, so we'd have one picture with both of us taken from more than an arm length away.|
Unfortunately, we failed to knock on wood about everything going smoothly. Stay tuned for one last entry about our journey home.
