Island In The Sun: Turks and Caicos

Sorry for the radio silence over the past week but I’ve been on vacation 🙂


We took a trip with a bunch of friends down to the beautiful Caribbean Island of Turks and Caicos.  We enjoyed sunny days, pristine white sand beaches, and the clearest blue water I’ve ever seen.  The days were spent reading on the beach, floating in the ocean, a little tennis, and so much fun! We attended a local fish fry, took a boat ride to beach where we searched for conch shells and sand dollars, and ate many wonderful meals. It was a wonderful time and one of the most relaxing vacations we’ve been on. IMG_8193

Fish Fry
After the fish fry we went to a local bar for karaoke night….


Dinner Time!!
Like several Caribbean Islands conch is the local dish…


Every morning we walked out the back door of our house to this…


A Mama Dolphin and her baby.
This was the beach at Ft. Williams…. There were no people and shells everywhere!
Here you could walk 500 yards out into the water and still only be waist deep in the warm clear turquoise water.


I found this conch shell half buried on the beach…
When I dug him up this is what I found.  Isn’t he beautiful?  Luckily, the occupant was no longer living there so he came home with me 🙂


On a 3 hour tour….


Best selfie picture EVER!!

A great time with great friend on a beautiful Island in the Sun….

Although I do some baking, I don't consider myself a baker as I can't stand having to measure. When it comes to cooking my philosophy is add a bit of this, a dash of that, a splash of something doesn't hurt, never forget some type of pepper and always add at least one clove of garlic. Thanks for stopping by my Spicy Texas Kitchen and I hope to see you again!!! Melody
