Wickford High-Rises

These plastic-covered plastic boats at Wickford Shipyard look like snow-covered high-rises as they wait for their release in the spring.

The Baths on Virgin Gorda

This is one of the most popular cruising sites in the British Virgin Islands -- huge boulders are scattered in this area and it's great spot for swimming, snorkeling, and following the paths though the caves. Go in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the crowds.
