On Thursday, we slept in a little and packed up our things. We bought sandwiches at the Dockmaster's Deli that is attached to the Village Cay Hotel. John got a Grad Slam Hero and I got the Chicken Parmesan. We checked out of the hotel and got a taxi to the north side of the island.
The drive across the island was an adventure. Tortola has many steep, winding roads, that often are only passable by one car at a time. It appears that some tourists actually rent cars on the island, but in my opinion that would be insane. Crazy difficult roads, American style cars driven on the left side of the road, and no street addresses to guide you - It's a recipe for disaster.

The cottage was great... lots of space to relax, all to ourselves. The owner of the cottages, Craig from Canada, was in town while we were there. We met him at the office when we checked in at Myett's. He's owned the cottages for over 20 years, but appears to be trying to sell them now.

|Bathroom... obviously :)|
|The dinning area. There are only screens, no glass on those openings. It made a nice breeze in the evenings.|
|The patio and entry.|
|The bedroom. The bedroom, unlike the rest of the cottage, was fully enclosed and air-conditioned.|
Once we'd had enough swimming for the day, we went back to the cottage for a shower and nap. Then, we went to the local grocery mart and got some supplies.

We ended out first evening on the beach reading in open air room of the cottage, and still hearing the slightly strange band playing over at Myetts (One of their songs was a Calypso version of My Heart Must Go On).
