Enjoying The Sun, Sea And Sand

It is good to enjoy the labor of your hands and the best way to do this is by enjoying the natural elements that God created.

Yesterday was a public holiday in my country and the men’s ministry at my church arranged a day of sailing.

The British Virgin Islands consisted of over fifty islands. We chartered a Catamaran and sailed to three of these islands.

This Catamaran is similar to the boat that we chartered.

We sailed along the western part of the island of Tortola passing Frenchman’s Cay and St John.

Our first stop was the beautiful island of Jost Van Dyke where we enjoyed the sun, sand, and sea at White Bay.

We had a wonderful time relaxing in the warm sea water and enjoying the sunlight.

We spent about two hours enjoying the sea then we reluctantly left to sail away to another island. Our next stop was Cooper Island where we had lunch.

Notice the brownish/greenish color of the water along the coastline. This was due to the abundance of Sargassum seaweed. Consequently, we did not go into the water on this beach.

After lunch, we sailed passed Pelican Island on our way to Norman Island.

A few people left the boat to enjoy the beach at Norman Island.  I chose not to disembarked at Norman Island but remained on the boat to chill.

As the sun began to descend over the mountains we left Norman Island to return home to Tortola. It was indeed a day filled with fun, laughter, and relaxation.


We all returned home satisfied and relaxed.

Me enjoying the wind, sea, and sun. Thank you, Lord.

It is a great feeling when you can fellowship together with your brethren in love and unity.

It is even more wonderful to give God thanks and praise for His marvelous creation.

Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and forevermore. From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same, the Lord‘s name is to be praised. The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high, who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth! (Psalms 113:2-6)

Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise him in the heights. Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts. Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light. Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens. Let them praise the name of the Lord: for he commanded, and they were created. (Psalms 148:2-5)

    • I am truly thankful to God for the blessings of the sunshine and sea. Sometimes you get so stressed out at work that you forget to enjoy nature’s blessing. It was a wonderful time.
