camping, bvi style

There has been a few discussions in the past about trying to do a group camping trip, either on the beach around Tortola, or off on one of the unhabited islands surrounding. Apart from the daily down pour, we do have the perfect seasonal temperatures. And the idea of waking up on the sand intentionally (as oppose to the consequence of a wild night) does sound heavenly. But unlike my woodsy friends back in the Northwest, our entire lot of camping gear includes a couple of headlights and an ice box. Someday, we will stock up at Kmart over in St. Thomas on some good old-fashioned Coleman tents and sleeping bags (so unhip, it’s almost cool again!), but until then we rely on Dream Yacht Charter to provide the occasional usage of an available boat off the fleet to get our fill of an outdoor adventure.  A guess a night moored at Cooper Island doesn’t really test our survival skills much, but with six children on board I would say their are many who not suvive such a feet!
