Wish I Were Here: Turks & Caicos

Unusually dreary winter weather (for Colorado) has me dreaming of the vibrant colors and tropical breezes of the Caribbean.

When going through my photos from my 2012 visit to Grace Bay on Providenciales island,Turks and Caicos, this shot of rainbow had me weeping.

What I wouldn’t give right now for a rum punch served at The Regent Grand hotel pool, which overlooks the ocean.

And there was  plenty of pampering in the Teona Spa at The Regent Grand.

And there were colorful shells at Da Conch Shack & Rum Bar oceanside eatery.

Visiting the ocean always makes me feel like a kid again!

    • Yes, big resorts can be nice, but they also separate you from nature. There’s nothing like sleeping with the windows open and hearing the waves!!!
