baby break at parrot cay

 

baby break at parrot cay | myseastoryfor my birthday, last month, we wanted to take it very easy, julia and i had just been back to provo for over a month and we were still getting the hang of it. so we decided to get away and spend the day close by, at parrot cay.

our lunch faves – clockwise starting top left – tuna tataki: gypsy salad: pannacota with berries sorbet: cesar with prawns.

we are so lucky that we have this beautiful resort so close to us – we took the morning boat and in 20 minutes we were there. we were getting the last boat back at 5.30, giving us enough time to have a relaxing lunch by the pool, and enjoy the beach for a couple of hours before heading back to provo.

turks and caicos beaches // the bight

2013-04-21-turks-and-caicos-7yesterday james was eager to take a few pictures with his new dome lens (it allows taking pictures with the lens half under water and over water) so we made a quick stop at the bight.

we were talking about how lucky we are in turks and caicos, that we get 1 spare hour and we can actually make a pit stop at the beach, go for a quick dive and relax for a while in between plans.

2013-04-21-turks-and-caicos-4although we have warm weather all year round, we actually start feeling more summery – definitely hotter, the sea water is warmer and some say more humid too.

so you may have seen, on facebook or instagram, that i have been away for the past couple of weeks. i went to back to portugal for my mum’s birthday and we made a trip to florence to celebrate! it was an amazing couple of weeks. but it’s always nice to be back on island.

this morning i went for a beach walk with a friend and her dog, and it felt like the first time i was on this beach. i mean, i enjoyed it so much as if i didn’t take it for granted. and i felt so grateful.

go check out a few more pictures of the beach today HERE.
