Turks and Caicos Getaway

Although my “waterproof” camera gave out during our snorkeling trip, I was able to salvage the photos from the first half of our trip to the Turks and Caicos.We stayed exclusively on Providenciales but rented a car which allowed us to see the whole island.

The highlights: the sparsely populated beaches Long Bay Beach, Taylor Bay, and Sapodilla Bay, the Mango Reef restaurant, meeting and befriending a potcake puppy, and marveling at the surreal turquoise waters of Chalk Sound.
