Trellis Bay, BVI

It's a full moon tonight and it's been fairly busy on the CB~CB home front lately.  We finally got to go on our Honeymoon, and we decided to go to the Virgin Islands.  We took over 1,000 pictures, so we decided to break up the blog entries with different adventures we had along the way.  One of those adventures was the Trellis Bay, Full Moon Party. Trellis Bay is in the British Virgin Islands(BVI) and it was about 2 miles away from where we were staying.  Everyone told us to go, so we did.  They had reggae bands, and great food, and cold drinks.  
Here adults and kids alike are placing wood inside the steel balls for later.
Each month during the Full Moon, the locals gather and have a festival welcoming Luna.  There are cold drinks and a full outside buffet.  There's an overall welcoming feeling as soon as you arrive.  It's a family-friendly affair and I encourage anyone who ever has a chance to go, to do so.
Trellis Bay, BVI  April 2011
 Here is a link to a wonderful book I was chosen to do the cover art for.

Trellis Bay had these dancers on stilts walking around and dancing with the tourists.  It was unlike anything we'd had ever seen. 
The night sky was as clear as a bell; and very romantic for this Country Boy with his City Belle.  
These are iron-works done by a local artist named Aragorn.  He uses ship-wrecks as his supply of the iron, and refurbishes the iron into huge "iron-works" of steel fireballs and puts them in the water.  


The fireballs have a checkered history and past. Aragorn, the artist, engaged in a very public dispute with the island’s conservation department in 04' and 05' over whether he had the required permission to place them on the sea~bed.  At the height of the dispute, the fireballs were confiscated and locked up by the cops, but it seems to have been resolved for now.  Look at that FIRE!

GHOST Ship! 

Here's a link to our YouTube movie:
