Let’s drop back to the 1960s briefly

I have had people ask me if I had any pictures of Marie and I taken way back when. Well, Sam Harrell took this shot which his daughter, Patti, sent me recently. I would like to share it with you. It was taken on the beach of Little Thatch back in 1968. This was two years before we left the island and bought the beach-front acre on Jost Van Dyke. What memories this photo brings back!

 George &Marie Myrick Little Thatch BVI 1968

George and his wife, Marie, sailed professionally, chartering boats in the Bahamas, then in the Virgin Islands. They then leased an uninhabited island, Little Thatch, in the British Virgin Islands, and turned it into a small hotel. After six years, they left the island and bought a lovely beachfront property on Jost Van Dyke (BVI) where they built Sandcastle Hotel and the original Soggy Dollar Bar. George is now the author of Incredible Virgin Island Adventure: A True Story.
