💓Celebrate Women’s Dive Day 🤿
The ocean is a woman turned to the skies,
spilling her thoughts along a shoreline of sand.
You will never know what hides behind her eyes
by skimming the surface and reaching dry land.

Her soul is silent and runs deeper than deep.
O! How silent and deep her rivulets run!
Her whispers will charm you and lull you to sleep.
Let silence enter and the two shall be one.

Her coral cathedrals give pause to the brave
so eager to dive into the depths of youth.
She hides, yet magnifies, the giver who gave
sweet pearls of wisdom and immutable truth.

The ocean is a woman walking on waves,
wrapped in wind-song between heaven and the shore,
lightly tiptoeing over watery graves
buried deep where the sunlight can reach no more.

She tosses to turn; and she rises to fall,
undulating with her ubiquitous hips.
She dances on decks, over promenades all.
She is the sepulchre of a thousand ships.

Deep in her depths, the ocean is listening;
and my heart is haunted by love for the sea.
Waves are rippling; twilight is glistening.
The ocean is a woman and she is me.
-Linda Marie Van Tassell

Happy Virgin Islands Day!

Virgin Islands Day is a holiday that’s observed in the British Virgin Islands on the 1st Monday of July annually. This holiday has been celebrated since the mid-1950s and was previously known as Territory Day. This is a day that commemorates island culture and a recognition that the Virgin Islands have a distinct culture and history from the rest of the Caribbean.

Since the 17th century, the British Virgin Islands were under British control. During the 19th century, the British Virgin Islands became a part of the Federation of the Leeward Islands which included other British colonies in the Caribbean. In 1956, this federation was dissolved and the Virgin Islands became a colony. This is when Colony Day was created.

During the 60s, as other colonies began to move towards independence, the classification of the Virgin Islands was changed from a colony to a territory. The 1978 Public Holiday Act would then amend the holiday calendar so that Territory Day replaced Colony Day.

In 2020, the British Virgin Islands Holidays Review Committee recommended that the name of this holiday be changed to Virgin Islands Day. This happened on December 2nd of that year. Although the official name of this holiday is now Virgin Islands Day, it’s still referred to by many people as Territory Day.

The queen parrotfish is a medium sized parrotfish that lives on coral reefs in the Caribbean Sea and its adjacent waters. The parrotfishes are named for their powerful beaks, formed from the fusing of the teeth into biting plates. The largest queen parrotfish are brightly colored (blue, green, orange, etc.), and the species gets its name from a series of markings on the head, above the eye, that resemble a crown. Juveniles and young adults are a somewhat drab, brownish color.

Queen parrotfish are herbivores that graze the reef, using their beaks to scrape plants and algae from the reef surface. Oftentimes, this habit involves ingesting corals and other animals as well, but they are primarily herbivorous. Through their feeding strategies, parrotfishes create much of the sand around a reef. Upon eating some species of calcareous algae, parrotfishes digest the soft parts and pass the hard parts, which essentially take the form of sand. Through their constant grazing, queen parrotfish serve an important ecological function on coral reefs. By removing algae, they open up space on hard surfaces for corals to attach and grow.
