At last, time to slow down. Time to adjust to life on a boat. Out of the marina and over to Great Harbor at Peter Island,

6 bags, 2 people...

Arriving at customs in the BVI, The customs man looked at us, looked at all our luggage and  said "6 bags, 2 people.  Why?"
"Because we are moving on to our boat"
"What do you have in the bags?"
"Mostly household goods"
"May I see?"
The first bag was opened. Right on top was a small rug and some watercolors paints.
The second bag was opened.
A couple of bright yellow dive fins.
"Any guns or firearms?"
"No sir, we had to get through TSA"
He just nodded and passed us through.

On to the next phase.
