In June of this year - 2012, my son and I had a surprise baby shower for my daughter-in-law.

The event was an evening sailing trip off Tortola British Virgin Islands.

It was a beautiful evening both with weather and for me to meet my new extended family.

My son is a boat captain and he sailed the boat single handedly.

We sailed to a small island called Sandy Spit which is located just off Jos Van Dyke (one of the islands that make up the British Virgin Islands).

Sandy Spit is uninhabited, so we it was like we had our own private island for a few hours.

But we just swam (the water was absolutely divine) for a bit without going on the island.

The area that we swam in was about 7 feet deep, however, I was a bit scared so I used a noodle to swim around with the rest of the group. Some people followed my idea as well.

On the trip back, we had a few snacks while enjoying the breathtaking sunset.
