Caribbean meets Atlantic

Airfields don't get much prettier than this. I'm in the British Virgin Isles (BVI) to help their education team a little. With the progress we are making in the Cayman Isles the whole region is noticing, and excited. Since the caibbean is built on community, ingenuity and stability it is potentially a very exciting region for learning, isn't it?. At this Beef Island airfield planes land right where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean. Geography fans will be noting characteristically conical volcanic shapes that make up islands out here.

Between June and September we are in hurricane season - and I'm here in July, so many boats are tucked well away in lagoons inland. It is rather strange to be driving along inshore and to suddenly see clusters of tall sailboat masts behind trees!
