Breakfast was at plum cabin this morning and Casey brought donuts! She came in clutch haha. They were enormous too. Other than the donuts, breakfast was the same as the other days.

Year 2: Day 6 in the BVI

Year 2: Day 1 in BVI

After a long day of travel through Dallas, San Juan, Tortolla, and finally Virgin Gorda, the whole group has made it safely without any problems with tickets or passports.
