Always finds lots of beach glass at Shell Beach

Walked into town and over to Great Salt Pond for birdwatching.

We were supposed to stop in Virgin Gorda but ocean swells closed the harbor. We hiked the paved road to Paridise Point and saw lots of birds including a Brown-throated Parakeet - the road starts directly across the main road from the Havensight Cruise Port.
