Hi followers! I apologize for my lack in writing but we've been on vacation and I have had limited access to the internet. This post is entitled "Here chicken, chicken" for good reason... When we arrived in the Caribbean I saw a sight that I wasn't expecting. drum roll.... CHICKENS! If you will remember, I was a little leery about all the iguanas we'd be seeing on the Caribbean islands. Well, that is certainly not the case. I never saw one iguana. I saw lizards but never an iguana but boy oh boy did I see some chickens! The hens and rosters run wild around the islands. I guess if people ever get stranded they won't go hungry, right?
Andrew and I arrived at our check in destination 6 hours early because we didn't want to miss the ferry over to the
BVIs. Anyways, we get to check in and they tell us we can't board our boat until 5PM but the manager said he could take us to a sports bar to hang out in the mean time. We were okay with that; it was better than hanging out at the dock. We get to the sports bar and grill called Mulligan's and it's the only place opened on the island because it was raining (that's right, if it rains nothing is open). We sit down to order our food and notice a Momma hen and her 2 chicks (pictured). Neither of us felt right about ordering and eating chicken in front of them so I got pizza and Andrew got a burger. His burger was one of the
biggest I've ever seen.
We stayed at Mulligan's for 5 hours because there was no place else to go. We ended up playing card games and dominoes. In fact, we played "chicken foot" in our dominoes game. Andrew beat me which is a first and I'm still pretty upset about it.
Check back this week for daily posts about our trip, you can find the updates in the British Virgin Islands tab.
