My Current Favorite Piece Of The Earth

The Baths on Virgin Gorda.
Volcanic activity and erosion have left piles of giant granite boulders on the southern tip of Virgin Gorda. Next to the palm tree is a small opening into one of the piles.
Inside is a playground of rock climbing and exploring all the nooks and pathways created by the tumbled granite.
Sometimes you're walking on soft sand
others wading through water.
What pictures can't really give though, is a sense of scale.
These things are massive!
Eventually you come out from under the rocks onto another beach.
Then its time to get in and swim back to the boat while checking out the rest of the boulders that are underwater!
