It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you plate the food!

This summer is screaming past so quickly – is it just me?

Remember the days when summer felt like an entire lifetime and you actually started looking forward to going back to school and seeing your friends?

Incidentally those were the same days that ALL the stores were closed on Sundays and that meant calling someone on the telephone which was attached to the kitchen wall and making plans to GO OUTSIDE and ride bikes or something while you stretched that twirly phone cord around the kitchen into the living room and probably around your body.

Childhood days revisited

Yes – that’s me the bald one on the left (long story).

It’s a generational thing – I may have lost some of you on the whole twirly cord thing! Continue reading

Perfect Vacation in EVERY way !!!


From the time that we met SteveO and Chrissy at the Tap and Still in Red Hook, till the time we had to say goodbye with our fingernails clawing at the tramp not wanting to leave, it was the perfect vacation in every way.

SteveO and Chrissy truly do know how to make you feel welcome and at home but yet, pampering you with things you didn’t even know you desired without asking.
Knot Anchored is perfect from the lighting, themed rooms and of course a yeti that is to die for with perfectly cold beer, wine, juices, etc.
The guys would have taken the yeti home with us if they could have gotten it on the plane.

Chrissy’s awesome meals will leave you wanting for nothing and coming home to hit the treadmill.
Their knowledge of the islands and willingness to share them with you and still explore them alongside you makes for an even more exciting time with your new friends and I do mean we consider them friends.

With this being our third charter in the BVI we didn’t know if we could be awed any more than we had been already but, SteveO and Chrissy made our love for the islands that much greater.
We look forward to chartering with them again and more exciting adventures.
We highly recommend SteveO, Chrissy and Knot Anchored for either a laid back vacation with a couple of friends or with your family, you will not be disappointed.
Thank you SteveO, Chrissy and Knot Anchored for a wonderful, relaxing, exciting and PERFECT vacation
