New Moon Festival in BVI

Trellis Bay on Beef Island in the BVI is famous for its Full Moon Festival.  This monthly event which is a gathering of locals, sailing ship inhabitants and other fun finders out for an evening of dancing, drinking and festivities.   Locals in colorful garb balance way up high on stilts while dancing in the streets with anyone crazy enough to join them.  Of course, I was right there with them in the midst of the craze.

The main theme is the Fireball Party which is the cultural event not to miss.  I was still using the Minolta DiMage Z1 so the images are not a crisp as I would like but still show the spectacular setting of fire on the water.  The Fireball rests on the water fully ablaze and was mesmerizing as flames flickered in the breeze.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.
