|If you're fortunate to plan your travel to BVI during the Full Moon you'll be in for a pleasant surprise. Once each month, when the Moon is full, BVI hosts a "Full Moon Party." It's the talk of the island and a "must" attend for the tourists. I'm not quite sure why it has this reputation, but we were caught up in the hype and decided to join the party following our dinner at the Sugar Mill Inn.|

|Once you arrive at the "Bomba Shack," the location on the beach where the Full Moon Party is held, you will be greeted by hoards of people jammed into a small area. The music is blasting and the liquids flowing.
|In addition to the drinks and music the "Full Moon Party" is also known for the mushrooms. Yes, mushrooms! Supposedly these mushrooms provide a natural high and you see people selling the mushroom concoction in shot glasses to the unwary tourists out for a night's fun. I really don't think you need anything other than the drinks and the mood to get high at the Bomba Shack's Full Moon Party. Anne and I didn't try them. I've always been leery of such things ever since a coworker told me of an experience she had while traveling in Israel. They bought something to smoke and it turned out they purchased and smoked camel dun. All of them got sick and, I guess, learned a valuable lesson.||

|We enjoyed a few drinks and a quiet walk along the beach before
searching out Ronald for our ride back to the hotel. We had earlier made
arrangements for him to meet us at the Bomba Shack and, judging from the
crowds, it was a smart decision to have this arrangement. We were all,
I believe, happy to see Ronald's smiling face.
