The Beauty of the Baths
Contrary to our usual custom, Dana and I took a half day today and played tourists. We went to “The Baths” in Virgin Gorda, an area of huge boulders that are strewn haphazardly over a beach area there.
I had seen photos of The Baths before, but was unprepared for the majesty of the rocks. Even the photos cannot do justice to them. There are several “caves” where the rocks rest on each other and people seem so small. These rocks have been in these positions for who knows how long (no doubt some would tell us at least millions of years) and seem impervious to everything—the weather, the efforts of mankind, even earth tremors (there was a small one on Mon. morning on Tortola).
Yet as strong as these rocks seem to be, there is a Being even stronger and greater—God. He is still in control of all things, including the wonders of nature, which He has created for us to enjoy.
