We cannot seem to get enough of Turks and Caicos. It is perfect for us because it is relatively easy to get to, the beaches are beautiful, there is a dazzling selection of excellent restaurants and the people are very friendly. This trip was no different from any of our previous vacations. We ate at our favourite restaurants, lounged by (or floated on) the ocean and enjoyed sleeping in a king-size bed. Everything just seems “to work” in Turks and Caicos.
The sail from Soufriere to Bequia is a long one (around 95 kilometres), so we woke early and started out right away. Almost immediately, Steven had us out into the St Vincent Channel. One great thing about the Grenadines is how much open water sailing it offers.
Cristina and I usually see eye-to-eye when it comes to vacations. There is one type of vacation where we are not exactly on the same page but she toughs it out because she knows how much I enjoy it. What am I talking about? I am talking about chartering a sailboat and exploring little Caribbean islands. It a very unique vacation with the sunsets and the turquoise water but she calls it “camping on the sea”.
