turks and caicos through your eyes

i always love seeing turks and caicos through other peoples’ eyes, i love it when we have friends over and they get excited with views i might take for granted. perhaps there is a lot that i am missing.

my jaw dropped when i found bea’s blog, la tartine gourmand. i almost can’t believe her pictures of our islands – is this  really where i live!?

check out her gorgeous pictures and head over here to read more on her family vacation in turks and caicos, their stay in long bay area and visit to north caicos government farm, plus a delicious eggplant recipe she made after visiting the farm!

day trip to north & middle caicos

last week my dear friends simone and christian invited me to join them for a day trip to north and middle caicos. it felt kind of exciting to leave provo for a day and go island hoping!

north caicos is the only island we can go to by ferry, and through north caicos there is a causeway to get to middle caicos.

so we got the ferry at 9.30 ($20 each way) and in 30 min were arriving to north caicos. we rented a car and made our first stop for a drink at the pelican beach hotel. it feels somewhat different here, more relaxed than provo, there is more vegetation and the people we meet are so friendly and helpful. they have a govenrment farm, which we were hoping to visit and buy some local veggies, but unfortunately it was closed.

the plan was to drive to daniel’s cafe, in middle caicos, for lunch, but (un)luckily enough our car had a flat tire, so we found this great local spot for lunch – frank’s cafe, it turned out to be a great home cooked lunch with the freshest cracked conch!

we ended our day trip relaxing in mudjin harbor before heading back home to provo.
