What to do in Slow September – From the Editor

Sealyon 62- Reception_04

We were trying to think of a positive spin to put on September…but the fact is, every single year it’s a slow month. No other way to look at it. Residents go on vacations or visit their families in their respective homes, and holidaymakers are on the cusp of returning for the commencement of high season in October.

Keeping this all in mind, we’ve constructed an issue that bestows both reflection and activity ideas for this ‘gentler’ time of year.

The first feature—BVI HomeSense—entertains 10 reasons an individual needs a realtor, whether buying or selling property. There’s a wealth of information involved in these transactions and professional advice can simplify the process immensely.

Yacht Spotlight shines its ray of sunshine on SeaLyon, the award-winning superyacht that appears fit for aristocracy; a very attractive vessel.

BVI Maritime History Tales relays the fable surrounding the disappearance of Gloria Colita. This is most definitely one of the creepier tales of our monthly feature and intriguing all the same.


We look at our favourite recipes From Sea Level, providing you with inspiration if you’re an avid cook; apt for this period in the year when your time may be freer for culinary experimentation.

Things We Love dabbles in decoration you can hang up to augment design themes in your homes and make your residences more pleasurable.

We also reflect on artists that have stayed or live in the BVI – this land is known to inspire creativity in many residents and visitors, conceiving a visual feast from the perspectives of talented individual.

Since this is the quieter month, we recommend a trip to the elusive Anegada. Very often neglected, this island is one of the most unique looking places in the world being so flat. But if that doesn’t take your interest, maybe hiking is the hobby more suitable as we present another sample of Trails & Tales, the hiking guide to the BVI.

As we’re sure you’re aware, Readers’ Choice voting has now closed. We look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday October 4, 2016 for our 6th annual event when the award-winners will be announced amid drink, food, and entertainment.

Finally, a reminder that VIPY Style & Beauty is arriving in October. This is our upcoming feature that will reveal the latest trends and fashion from various retailers in the Virgin Islands, keeping you in the know.

Wishing you enjoyment of the LAND, SEA, and LIFE in the Virgin Islands
