Default Tortola, BVI

Recently I read an article in our KC newspaper about Tortola, and I have a few questions. If you have every visited there, I would appreciate a response if you know anything about the below:

Has anyone ever seen the mural on Northside Street? They say it is the past/present history of Tortola, and I was wondering if it is worth seeing?

Has anyone visited the R.J. O'Neal Botonical Gardens?

Been on Anegada Island?

Visited Iguana Preserve?

Been on Loblally Bay?

We too, saw it as we rode by. It was interesting, as an aside on the tour, I would not really have understood it all, if our guide did not explain parts of it, as we rode by....

Honestly. ..I have not heard of the other places of interest you have mentioned....sound good though;)

While the mural on Northside Street was interesting, I would not make a special effort to visit it. We saw it on a tour of the island as we drove by. The tour guide explained each scene and the tour did not stop,I guess they thought it nice but not worth a visit.

Thanks for your "feeback" on the Northside Street mural.

If you "think" of any other points of interest of see/eating/doing, please let me know.
