And the Blog Begins... with Food of Course!

Thought I would begin my first blog with just a snippet of what my life looks like on Green Flash.  It all starts with the food, but I guess it can't all be about food (darn)! Sometimes I wish I could just wear a chef's hat.  Actually, there are a lot of great things that happen in between.  As my blog continues, I hope to fill in the details, (believe me there are many), and share with you not only some delicious recipes, but fun and wonderful experiences and interesting and awesome people we meet along the way.

Provisioning is always "fun" and for me it all begins at Supa Valu (gotta love the name and the spelling!) in Road Town, Tortola.  You never know what you'll find there.  The little magic doors open and the surprises are many.  Love to start there!

Next stop, Cash and Carry and Rite Way.  The produce actually looked pretty good that day.

Next, French Deli.  Such a great addition to BVI.  I count on them for awesome cheeses, cured meats, breads and olives.

Iris, a Tortolan local and our favorite (and very patient) taxi driver, takes us on all our crazy errands... great lady!
