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.

a few other posts on the bight – here and here.

turks and caicos beaches // leeward beach

we’ve had friends over during this week, and i feel kinda guilty because the weather is not as it should be. since sandy, the sea, beaches and sun have not been in their “usual behavior”…so we’ve been trying extra hard to find the best beach spots for a dream weekend on island.

on a windy day we made a pitch stop in almost every beach on island until we chose the best one – we realized the most easter part of emerald point was less windy and the sea was calmer.

we spent the afternoon sunbathing, collecting shells and watching the kite surfers!

ps – tomorrow we are headed to the first island street food fair – part of the caribbean food & wine festival, that started yesterday.

turks and caicos beaches // long bay

every time i leave provo, i feel somewhat nostalgic… and on the day i leave i always go for a quick visit to the beach near home. but this time, for a change, i went to long bay beach.

we don’t usually go to long bay, we seem to forget it when deciding what beach to go to.

but when we have guests coming to visit i always take them there and they love it. the beach is gorgeous, it is almost always deserted and so easy to fall in love with.

here, the water is very shallow, it is sometimes windy, and perfect for kite surfers.

i love these palm trees on the beach too, don’t you? it makes it look so dreamy!
