Marina Cay

Hey guys! Hope everyone is having a good week! On Tuesday, Tony and I went over to a lovely little restaurant and resort on it's own tiny island called Pusser's Marina Cay. I've been to Marina Cay (pronounced Key) a few times before - it's one of those places that I love going back to. 

Founded on Tortola, Pussers is a Caribbean brand that began as the official rum of the British Navy in the 1800s, but over the years expanded into hotels, restaurants and merchandise. The food at the various Pusser's restaurants throughout the BVI is my favourite - and their signature cocktail, the world famous Painkiller is something I miss when I'm back home!
 I took a few photos while I was waiting for the ferry!

 Almost arriving at Marina Cay - it's only a 5 minute ferry ride.

Trying the Virgin Islands very own Island Summer ale for the first time - I'm not a beer or ale fan at all, but this was quite tasty.

 One of the many resident cats, lounging in the shade, waiting for scraps of food.

 An interesting face - but I'm really just enjoying my Pusser's Famous BBQ Chicken Wings!

I hadn't noticed this cool sign-post pointing to all of the different islands and attractions in the BVI before - so I just had to snap a photo!

In keeping with the "British" part of the British Virgin Islands Pusser's had an old red telephone booth shipped out to the Caribbean many, many, many years ago. There's a camera across fromt he booth taking photos every 15 seconds. There are 5 live webcams that are in and around Tortola!

I had a lovely day at Marina Cay, and got some more layers of sun tan topped up! To end here's a photo of Momo being exceptionally cute when we got back home! Hope you've all had a good week! ♥

    1. It's *kind* of a holiday. It's basically my 2nd home (though I spend more time here than home) - this is my 5th time here, I think it's been a year in total when I add it all up. Next year when I'm done with uni I'll be moving here permanently. My boyfriend was born and raised here his whole life - so both I and him are pretty damn lucky!! xx
