Mmmm, Beef Island

There is a magical place in the British Virgin Islands named BEEF ISLAND.

I imagined in my mind it would be shaped much like a meat loaf. And, well, it kind of is. Check it out above.

The island earned its name during the plantation period when cattle were raised there. But the real reason I stumbled upon this treasure is that Beef Island does not observe Daylight Saving Time so they will not be “falling back” this weekend with most of us. I was trying to find out when I should set my clock back.

Seems they dance to a different drumbeat on Beef Island. And I dig that.

In fact, Beef Island just may be what dreams are made of. I’m daydreaming about eating a Porterhouse on a seaside veranda looking out on that water.

That’s paradise!
