Turks and Caicos

This week we join the Shattering (Island) Tour where we follow the path of Hurricane Francis to the Turks and Caicos Islands. 

On September 1, 2004 Hurricane Frances made a direct hit on the Turks and Caicos island as a Category 4 storm with 125 MPH winds causing flooding and destroying homes. 

Today we begin our day on the Grace Bay Beach with perfect weather as we watch the skies just in case anything should pop up. I have a bag full of books to share with you and we're gonna be lazy today. I've brought you here because this beach was voted as World Leading Destination Beach by World Travel Awards' and the second best beach in the world by Trip Advisors. With those credentials it definitely deserves at least a few hours.

Grab a book from our selection and settle down for the afternoon, but before we do let's plan our itinerary for the week here on this lovely collection of islands.

Here are your choices:

1. Cheshire Hall Plantation -- The ruins of Cheshire plantation is full of history and mystery. Originally built by an Englishman from Cheshire, Wade Stubbs. On this land they grew sea island cotton, a highly desired crop. The property was protected by a few cannons that sit atop the hill. The surrounding area has been preserved with walking trails and naturalist signs labeling local plants and is full of wildlife.

2. Caicos Conch Farm -- For the inner geek and biologist at heart we can tour the only Conch farm in the world. We will learn about the life cycle of the Caribbean Queen Conch and even meet two trained and friendly conchs. They are also developing grouper, snapper, pompano and cobia for farming.

3. Horseback riding on the beach with Provo Ponies -- This is something I've always wanted to do. Let's ride these beauties in the cool ocean waves off of the Caicos Banks and merge with the best of the beast and the wonders of nature.

4. Kite boarding -- For the adventurous we have an afternoon with the Turks and Caicos Kiteboarding.

5. Water sport excursion with Silly Creek Water Excursions -- Spend the day snorkeling, skiing, tubing, cliff jumping, and exploring the Pirate's Cave with a picnic on the beach.

Shattering Time Blurb:

The number one best-selling thriller Stealing Time continues its “breathtakingly original” journey.

Ronnie Andrews returns from eighteenth century London shell-shocked from her first terrifying time travel encounter. Her boyfriend, Jeffrey Brennan, casts doubt on her sanity leaving Ronnie wondering if she went back in time or is having a mental breakdown.
To add to the tension, Hurricane Francis, a storm the size of Texas, is barreling towards Florida and her fears of a repeat time travel experience mount. Ronnie’s best friend Steph, along with her friend Nick and Steph’s younger brother Ian, shield Ronnie from the dangers of Francis but cannot save her from traveling back in time. Unfortunately, their meddling brings Ronnie to the brink of destruction as they are caught in the throes of the hurricane’s wrath.
Once again, Ronnie is transported to dangerous places and plagued with desperate situations, while experiencing perilous cultures including one of America’s first mysteries -- the Lost Colony of Roanoke Island. 
A stunning conclusion brings Ronnie face to face with a dangerous ally who may hold the key to her past while offering salvation for her future.
