In search of a Caribbean location with no drunken college kids or hordes of cruise ship passengers, our travel agent recommended the Turks and Caicos Islands. Settling on Providenciales, we stayed at a resort right on Grace Bay.
Above is the husband relaxing on the lounger of our lanai, enjoying the mild temps and ocean sounds. It was really expensive, but really beautiful.
They did indeed have cheeseburgers on the menu in our little bit of Caribbean paradise, but we opted to sample the local conch fritters.
One of our favorite activities was a full day excursion on a catamaran for some snorkeling, shelling and just general chillaxin'.
…while the 7th grader practically climbed her daddy when one of the resident iguanas cast his eye her way.
Here are two videos of the girls, the younger one snorkeling and the older one cutting a rug with the locals running our tour.
And a few final pictures of paradise. We had such a great time that we're thinking we need to give another Caribbean location a try for spring break next year. I think we could all grow accustomed to an annual dose of island time.
