september-instagram

september is typically the quietest month on island, it’s the peak of tropical storms and hurricane season, and most restaurants are closed for vacation and refurbishment. ours was quite the opposite, with all the packing and organizing for our move. it was also a very emotional month, saying “see you soon” (would hate to say good bye!), spending as much time as we could with our friends and trying to make the most out of (barefoot) island life – we still managed to fit in one more trip to parrot cay and a long overdue weekend in south caicos. now, we’re so ready for what october has to offer!

my turks and caicos guide

so i thought why not have a permanent short guide for anyone planning to visit? i will keep this info with easy access and update regularly as new places and spots come up (or my opinion changes) – Continue reading

shopping in turks and caicos

shopping-in-turks-and-caicos-by-myseastorymoving to turks and caicos has really tought me how to live with little or no shopping – ok, for a certain period of time. here, you don’t feel the need to spend, there is limited choice and the prices are high. on the down side, when i’m off island, i know i have a few days to shop and sometimes not enough time to plan and decide what i really need/want. it’s all or nothing…

if you are craving a little vacations shopping, here is where i like to go (in no particular order)  if i have to get a gift for a friend or when i’m in need of some retail therapy –  Continue reading
