Knot Bad anchored over a charter boat’s anchor
Probably 200 to 250 boats were tightly moored or anchored in Trellis bay for the event.

The parties are billed as, “The B.V.I.’s top culture event of the month.”

It was also a great opportunity to catch up with cruiser friends.
Too much help lighting the fire sculptures
The party is kicked off by the lighting of the fire sculptures.
The flaming sculptures with sparks flying and the anchor lights in the background brought everyone’s camera out.
Next we were treated to shadow dancers behind an opaque moon on the roof.
Raised by a crane, the shadow dancers became sky dancers.
No Caribbean party would be complete without the appearance of the Moko Jumbi dancers.
Trellis Bay had changed since the last time we were there (15 years ago). The Loose Mongoose Café was still there, albeit with a new paint job, and the little mini-mart seemed to have a better selection. There were a couple of new restaurants, but the nicest addition was Aragorn’s Studio, an outlet for local artists and locally grown food. Trellis bay has improved, but managed to keep its funky nature. For more information see: www.aragornsstudio.com.
