Default Turks & Caicos

Went to the Turks & Caicos Islands for vaccation and man it was awsome, the islands are south of the Bahamas!

i only saw one Bonneville, Dark Green '05 Bonneville...it was under a small shelter and being washed...which is almost pointless on those islands seeing how every car fades to white within a day (maybe two) do to to all the sand/salt....i would have had a picture but i didn't see it untilll we were heading back to the airport on the taxi...and i counted 4 mustangs...not that you guys care but....mostly it was all small nissans and junk, '90'* Ford Rangers and Ford Econolines and new Dodge Dakotas, the specific island we were on was something like 10 miles long by 2-4 miles wide...

Gas was $4.30

it was still a pretty awesome trip, has anyone been to the Turks & Caicos Islands before?

if not you should concider it for your next trip.

How'd you book the vacation out of curiosity? Through American Express?

i just taged along with my cousins, My Uncle is an Airline pilot for U.*. Airways and so they can basicaly go whee they want when they want and they happend to take my brother and I

I only had a few disposable cameras so yopu probaly wont get to see any pics...unless I scan them in...i could have gotten them on a cd but i wasn't thinking when i droped them off today...but if you have seen the Corona commercials, basicaly the beach looks like that

we went snorkling and scuba diving, it was awesome, very very clear water, we actually saw more when we went snorkling, we found several Sing-rays sea-qucumbers a few Conch and a sea turtle while snorkling, and we found a reef shark while diving. There was a woman on the dive crew that was on the Ireland national swim team and she was very good swimmer, so while we were scuba-ing and woring about equalizing the pressure in our ears like every foot, she dives down to 45-50 feet with just fins and goggles and a bikini and it was awesome , she must be like, immune to the bends or something, lol

anyhow it was an awesome trip..i suggest goingon your next trip...we stayed at the only Hotel on the island, everything else was a resort or condos, and the hotel was awesome (except breakfast), Comfort Suits
